The Oregon Ducks have a slightly less chance of winning, we believe. Both teams are strong, yes. If you talk with the head coaches, you will know that their team is the best and not going to lose this matchup, no matter whose head coach it is — the Cougars or the Ducks. But still, there are factors that place the Ducks on a lower step.
Further, the line is actually quite thin this time. It’s very hard to pick. Even that slight disadvantage might mean nothing, and something else could come up as a huge advantage.
The Washington State Cougars are averaging 41.8 points per game against 43.0 of the Oregon Ducks. They are allowing 23.8, while the Ducks are allowing 24.8. Total yards run 485.5 vs 482.8 of the Ducks. Total yards allowed are 311.2 vs 361.8 of the Ducks. The Cougars are too similar to the Ducks on the paper. Most of the matchups in college football this season haven’t even come close.
Still, the Cougars will try to best the Ducks. One slip-up and it could ruin all the chances Washington State has to win this matchup. They cannot let that happen. They need their sixth win and not their second loss.
