Jahvid Best will face his toughest defensive challenge yet when No. 6 California heads to Oregon for a 3:30PM ET kickoff from Autzen Stadium.

Bet California at Oregon

Best has rushed for 412 yards in three games with eight touchdowns to lead Cal to a 3-0 start. Best is averaging 7.3 yards per-carry and 137.3 yards per-game. With Best, quarterback Kevin Riley has thrown for 698 yards passing with five touchdowns. Riley has also avoided throwing and interception while completing 65 percent of his passes. The Bears lead the PAC 10 in points and yards this season, and are second in rushing yards, 10 behind Arizona. Defensively, the Bears rank third in the conference in rushing yards allowed.

Oregon bounced back from a season-opening loss at Boise State with wins over Purdue and Utah. A win on Saturday could propel the Ducks back into the top 25. Oregon has lost three-straight to the Bears, including a 26-16 loss in 2008. Jeremiah Masoli has been shaky at quarterback throwing for just 379 yards and two interceptions with no touchdowns on the season. Masoli has rushed for 145 yards and four scores to help make up for the loss of LeGarrette Blount who is out for the season after punching a Boise State player. LaMichael James is leading Oregon in rushing with 230 yards. Defensively, the Ducks are second to last in the PAC 10 in points and yards allowed, but do have four interceptions as a team.

Oddsmakers from online sports book BetOnline have made California 5.5-point road favorites over Oregon on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 58.
