Oregon Ducks vs Utah Utes: Three Things I’ll Be Watching

1 of 5

When Oregon and Utah meet at Autzen Stadium on Saturday evening it will be the first Top 20 matchup at Autzen Stadium this season. The Utes come in at 3-0 and bring a physical team up front, possibly the most physical team that Oregon will see the rest of the Conference season. Utah is averaging thirty points per game this season, good enough for just out of the basement when looking at the Pac-12 Total Team Statistics. Oregon comes in second behind Arizona, thanks in part to their onslaught against Northern Arizona this past weekend.

Regardless of the statistics, Utah has plenty of talent to ruin the Oregon Ducks Day. The Ducks Defense is suspect to the tune of three-hundred eighteen yards given up through the air last weekend to Georgia State. Oregon also gave up over two-hundred yards to Eastern Washington Wide Receiver Cooper Kupp in the first week of the season through the air. This has become more than a concern in the eyes of Oregon fans and the media. We’ll see if they can get it together this weekend as Pac-12 play begins. (this will be among the things that we will all be watching.) I mentioned the talent of Utah. One name comes to mind and that is where I’ll begin. Running Back Devontae Booker has become a beast of the Offense in the first three games of the season for Utah.
