College Football Pick Arizona at Oregon 11-26-10

November 24, 2010


#21 Arizona Wildcats at #1 Oregon Ducks

Friday November 26, 2010 7:00 PM EST

Line: Oregon -20

Arizona has not lost two straight games. Two weeks ago they lost 42-17 at Stanford. Oregon knows that they could very well be on their way to winning a national championship. Both teams had an extra week off, and that should only help Oregon as they are chomping at the bit to put some points on the board as they put up a season low 15 against Cal two weeks ago.

Stats to consider:

Arizona Wildcats:

  • Arizona is 7-3 with a 4-3 Pac-10 record.
  • They are 3-1 on the road, those 3 wins were at Toledo, Washington State, and UCLA.
  • Points against per game: 18.1 (12th)
  • Points for per game: 29.9 (49th)
  • Passing yards a game: 300.6 (10th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 143.9 (78th)

Oregon Ducks:

  • Oregon is 10-0 with a 7-0 Pac-10 record.
  • They are 5-0 at home with no game within 20 points.
  • Points against per game: 17.2 (11th)
  • Points for per game: 50.7 (1st)
  • Passing yards a game: 251.1 (34th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 291.1 (6th)

What to watch for:

  • Arizona Junior QB Nick Foles has thrown for 2,201 yards 13 TDs and 6 Ints. Junior WR Juron Criner has 982 yards and 6 TDs.
  • Oregon Sophomore QB Darron Thomas has thrown for 2,225 yards 23 TDs and 6 Ints. He has rushed for 434 yards and 4 TDs.
  • All eyes will be on Heisman hopeful Oregon RB LaMichael James. James has rushed for 1,422 yards and 17 TDs. 2 weeks ago at Cal was the first game all season long that James did not rush for a TD.

Football picks focus on the home team. No change in this one as Oregon has been great at home. Arizona has yet to face a team like Oregon on the road and should struggle mightily in this one. Oregon RB LaMichael James is going to have a big game this weekend. He knows what is on the line and should play with a chip on his shoulder after being held without a TD 2 weeks ago.
