The Bronco Mendenhall era at Virginia got off to a rough start as the Cavaliers lost to FCS foe Richmond 37-20 as an 11-point home favorite last Saturday. Kurt Benkert completed 26-of-34 passes for 264 yards with three touchdowns and an interception but the Virginia defense allowed Richmond signal-caller Kyle Lauletta to complete 24-of-35 passes for 337 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Oregon won its home-opener against FCS opponent UC-Davis 53-28 as a 48-point favorite. New quarterback Dakota Prukop completed 21-of-30 attempts for 271 yards with three touchdowns and no picks while Royce Freeman rushed 11 times for 87 yards and two scores in the victory.

OUR PREDICTION: Considering Virginia gave up 37 points at home to Richmond and Oregon surrendered 28 points at home to UC-Davis, the over would appear to be a safe bet this weekend in Eugene. The over is 20-8-1 in the Cavaliers' last 29 non-conference games and is 6-2-1 in their last nine games versus an opponent with a winning record. The over has also cashed in all five of the Ducks' last five games and is 33-16-2 in their last 51 games played in the month of September.
