The Bronco Mendenhall era did not get started on the right foot last weekend, as Virginia lost 37-20 to FCS opponent Richmond as an 11-point home favorite. Signal-caller Kurt Benkert completed 26-of-34 attempts for 264 yards with three touchdowns and one pick, but Virginia had no running game. As a team, the Cavaliers had 38 yards on 21 carries, which resulted in a 1.8 YPC average.

The Ducks had an easier time with its blood donor last week, as they blasted UC-Davis 53-28 as a 48-point favorite. Royce Freeman rushed 87 times and two touchdowns on 11 carries while Dakota Prukop completed 21-of-30 passes for 271 yards and three touchdowns in his debut with the Ducks. (See why we think tonight's game will be high-scoring for bettors.)

OUR PICK: The knee-jerk reaction would be to fade a Virginia team that lost to Richmond last Saturday, but look for the Cavaliers to play much better tonight. The Ducks are 1-5 against the spread in their last six non-conference games and are 2-7 ATS in their last nine home games, so it's not as if Eugene has been an instant cover for bettors like it was a few years ago. Surely the Ducks will overlook the Cavaliers, who will cover the big number.
