#1 Oregon Ducks at California Golden Bears

Saturday November 13th, 2010 7:30 PM EST

Line: Oregon -20


The Oregon Ducks are the number one team in college football. They have shut down teams on defense and have the most explosive offense in the country. Cal is 5-4, but they struggle with consistency. It is unclear which Cal team will show up on Saturday, but they need to be at their best to even keep it remotely competitive.

Keys to the Game:

  • LaMichael James has racked up 1331 yards for 17 touchdowns. He is averaging 6.8 yards a carry and has the complete attention of the defense every snap. James is the ultimate home run threat. He is nearly impossible to tackle in the open field and has world class speed. No team has been able to control James this season and California does not look like they will stop that trend.
  • Shane Vereen has dominated at times and been shut down at other times. He will be in the fight of his life when he takes on the Oregon defense. Oregon looks like they have 12 players on the field at all times. The speed on their defense combined with their versatility makes them a nightmare for opposing offenses. Vereen has the ability to take over football games. He will command the respect of Oregon, though Oregon will likely shut him down.
  • Cal needs to slow down the Oregon offense. It is a tall task, but allowing 50 points against Oregon simply puts them out of contention. The Oregon offense is impossible to duplicate. Their no huddle offense constantly keeps defenses on their heels. If Cal starts allowing Oregon to dictate the tempo of the game, they are bound for a huge loss.

Wrap Up:

Oregon is far and away the best team in the Pac-10. Cal is inconsistent, but you can expect to see them at their worst on Saturday. Oregon has made exposing teams a habit all season long. They bring out the worst in everyone and have blown every team they have encountere this season. No team hlost by a single digit deficit to Oregon. Cal appears to be destined for a blowout loss.
