Oregon declines to issue depth chart ahead of Week 1
Oregon will open its 2023 season against in-state FCS program Portland State on Saturday at Autzen Stadium.
Dan Lanning’s team won’t have nearly as much trouble with the Vikings, who were 4-8 in 2022, as it did in last year’s season opener against Georgia. The Ducks will look to tune things up as they search for a first College Football Playoff berth since 2014 in what is their final season in the Pac-12 before leaving for the Big Ten.
That said, Oregon didn’t release a depth chart on Monday as game week began in earnest. Instead, it released a positional roster, as Ducks Digest’s Max Torres notes below:

There’s certainly some guessing around who will start where, but the quarterback situation is sorted in Eugene: Bo Nix will get the nod as he looks to build on a terrific 2022 campaign. That said, one of the storylines will be based around him playing under a new offensive coordinator, Will Stein, after Kenny Dillingham left for the head coaching job at Arizona State in the offseason.
But there shouldn’t be many bumps in the road against Portland State on Saturday. Kickoff is set for noon PT on the Pac-12 Network.
