Both Oregon and UCLA are 5-2 against the spread this season. The over (currently set at 69.5) has hit in five of UCLA’s six games and four of Oregon’s.
It’ll be the first top-10 matchup between Pac-12 teams since the 2018 Apple Cup, according to The Mercury News’ Jon Wilner. And it’ll be the biggest game of the season so far for either team. A UCLA win would give the Bruins as strong a résumé as any team in the country, while an Oregon win would could put the Ducks right back into the conversation for a College Football Playoff spot.
Other Week 8 Pac-12 lines:
- Oregon State -22 vs. Colorado (O/U 51.5)
- Stanford -3 vs. Arizona State (O/U 56.5)
- Washington -8 at California (O/U 57.5)
