This weekend's matchup between the Washington Huskies and Oregon Ducks may not be receiving as much attention as other games across the country, but it should be. This is a crucial Pac-12 showdown with potential BCS implications down the road.
For Washington, they enter as a team that battled with the Arizona Wildcats for four quarters and were able to pull away with a late victory. Chris Polk had a career day running the ball and will look to continue his success against a tough Oregon front-seven.
For the Ducks, they have been on a roll since a loss the first week of the season. Quarterback Darron Thomas and running back LaMichael James are reportedly 100% healthy for the game and will be looking to wreck havoc at Husky Stadium.
