Oregon Ducks (4-0, 1-0 Pac 12) vs Colorado (2-1, 0-1 Pac 12)
Folsom Field, Boulder Colorado
Kickoff 3pm, Pac 12 Networks
In one of the bigger mismatches for the Oregon Ducks football team this season, Mark Helfrich and Company return to one of the places close to the Oregon Head Coach. The leader for the Ducks was the former Offensive Coordinator for the Buffs before coming to take a position with Oregon. Colorado had a nice start to the season but were reeled back to reality last weekend in a 44-17 loss to Oregon State. Colorado has given up the second most points of Pac 12 teams(31.7), but one benefit is they won’t have to face Oregon Junior Running Back De’Anthony Thomas on Saturday. He is out with an ankle sprain.
One player to watch on Saturday is Oregon Wideout Bralon Addison who last weekend against Cal had two punt returns for touchdowns. I am also looking for the Defense to come away with some pigskin. Last week Cornerback Ifo Ekpre Olomu had his first interception of the season. He should see the ball in the air enough today from Colorado Quarterback Connor Wood, who has already thrown four interceptions this year.
The folks in Vegas are not on the Buffaloes side in this one, even though the Ducks are without De’Anthony Thomas. An upset is always possible, but in this case not probable.
