Coliseum ready for high-octane showdown

Coliseum ready for high-octane showdown

Even in the midst of an uncharacteristically down season, Oregon still has the opportunity to qualify for a bowl. Yet such a goal could be met with ample resistance tonight.

USC, currently riding a four-game winning streak, welcomes Mark Helfrich’s program to the Coliseum at 7 p.m. ET. Online sports book BetDSI opened the Trojans as 17-point favorites over the Ducks. The over/under is 78.

After starting 2-5, Oregon posted a 54-35 victory over Arizona State last week. Quarterback Justin Herbert threw for a career-high 489 yards in that contest and finds himself with a completion percentage of 63.6 through three starts. The tight ends, Pharaoh Brown and Johnny Mundt, continue to come up big for the freshman. Brown had a particularly fine effort vs. the Sun Devils, racking up 129 yards on seven receptions.

Bet College Football MatchupsAt the same time, USC’s not permitting much room these days. Cornerbacks Iman Marshall and Adoree’ Jackson lead a defense that keeps rising to the occasion when signal-caller Sam Darnold and the offense encounter difficult patches. Don’t underestimate the importance of the Trojans’ O-line, either, as Darnold only absorbs 1.1 sacks per tilt.

In the end, though, we’ll be shocked if the Ducks fail to score at least 20 points for the 39th straight affair. Frankly, these are two powerhouse groups in terms of moving the ball vertically at present. The West Coast audience should bask in the assault on the senses.
