Overall, Oregon is 6-2 against the spread this season. The 29-point line is a big number, but at Folsom Field on Saturday, one of the most prolific offenses in the country meets one of the worst defenses.
Colorado is giving up 6.9 yards per play this year, the fourth-worst mark of any FBS team. They’ve allowed 1,898 rushing yards and 22 scores this year to opposing ground games. Teams haven’t needed to throw on Colorado, but those who have tried have largely found success (save for Cal). Arizona and Arizona State have combined to throw for 930 yards and nine scores on the Buff defense.
Oregon enters with the ability to do damage either way. The Ducks have the fourth-most efficient run game in football (5.9 yards a carry) and a pass game that’s just as efficient as Washington’s much-heralded aerial attack (8.6 yards a play). Behind Bo Nix, the Ducks are scoring 42 a game.
Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m PT on ESPN.
