Saturday's Pac-12 matchup between the Oregon Ducks and Colorado Buffaloes is a battle of two programs going in different directions. Oregon (5-1, 3-0) just knocked off a ranked opponent in Arizona State without their star quarterback and running back. Colorado (1-6, 0-3) is winless in conference play and has allowed 31 points or more in each of their six losses.
This all being said, while the Ducks will enter as heavy favorites, the Buffaloes would love to knock off a highly ranked opponent and they will have the home crowd on their side. It will not be easy, but UO needs to avoid silly mistakes if they hope to win.
