Oregon Ready for First Conference Foe

Lots of College Football teams get off to 3-0 or 4-0 starts based to a weak non conference schedule among other things. I don't think the Oregon Ducks fall into that category.

The #24 ranked Oregon Ducks take their scorching to record into Tempe for their conference opener against a ASU team that is still trying to find itself after a 52-45 loss to Texas Tech last week.

Oregon defeated ASU last year 54-35 in Eugene but it was little consolation for their disappointing 4-8 season which triggered a handful of changes at the University of Oregon including the hiring of Wille Taggart as the new Head Coach for the Ducks.

The change over has been brisk but has also been a fun one as well. Oregon can match their win total from last year and we are still only in September. Can Wille Taggart keep this up to the point that Oregon becomes a Top 10 team? Unfortunately, we won't get that answer for another few weeks but as of now, Taggart is making this coaching gig look like it's a walk in the park.

I might not be able to watch the game tomorrow. I will be at a family dinner but I think that Oregon comes a way with a 51-38 win. Arizona State has proved that they have lots of work to do on defense and that does not look good for them as Oregon's offense looks like it is at top notch right now.

The game starts at 7pm and can be seen on Pac 12 Network.
