WHAT’S AT Stake?

Sixth-ranked Oregon appears to be marching towards a possible college football playoff spot. But first, the Ducks get past back-to-back opponents starting with No. 25 Washington and No. 13 Utah next weekend. Both games will be played at Autzen Stadium, where the Ducks are on a 23-game winning streak, the third-longest streak in the nation. Washington has not won at Eugene since a 70-21 win in 2016.

KEY COMPARISON

The Ducks have 10 interceptions and 15 sacks. Washington allows opponents an average of 355.3 yards and 26.9 points with six interceptions and 26 sacks.

PLAYER TO SEE

Washington: Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr. leads the nation with an average of 359.1 yards per game. He is the first FBS QB to reach 3,000 passing yards this season and the first Washington QB to reach that milestone since Jacob Eason in 2019. His streak of 300-yard passing games ended at eight last week when the Huskies beat Oregon State, but by just two yards.

Oregon: The Heisman hype is getting louder for Oregon quarterback Bo Nix, who became just the second FBS player with two passing touchdowns, two rushing scores and a receiving TD in a single game against Colorado last week. It was his third straight game with five touchdowns. He now has a total of 36 touchdowns this season (22 passing, 13 rushing and 1 received).
