Oregon football: 3 bold predictions for rivalry battle at Washington

It’s been quite the week for Oregon football fans. Not only is there a huge rivalry game brewing, but the Ducks were also ranked No. 4 in the first College Football Playoff rankings on Tuesday.

No one really saw this No. 4 ranking coming, but it’s been welcomed by Oregon fans.

It does, however, put a huge target on Oregon’s back. We thought it was big before, but now that the Ducks are in the playoff field currently, everyone will want to ruin their season. And that includes hated rival Washington which happens to host the Ducks on Saturday afternoon.

Washington has had a disappointing season thus far, but this is a win that would make the Huskies’ season.

Will the Ducks hold off the Huskies in Week 10?

3. Devon Williams has a 100-yard game

I know what you’re thinking: Washington’s pass defense has been fantastic all season long and 100-yard receivers are few and far between against the Huskies.

I guess that’s what makes this a “bold” prediction.

Devon Williams has been building up to this game for weeks and he’s been getting better each time out. He had two catches for 20 yards against Stanford, then he caught four passes for 67 yards against Cal, had five catches for 80 yards at UCLA, and then capped off a hot stretch with five catches for 95 yards and a touchdown against Colorado.

Over the past four games, he’s caught 16 passes for 262 yards and a touchdown and he’s been getting closer and close to a 100-yard game. He gets that against the best defense he’s seen all year, arguably.

Buy Devon Williams stock now.
