The Golden Bears are clearly outmatched in this game, so we’re only going to take just a tad bit of time talking about them. QB Zach Maynard has thrown for 10 TDs against just three picks, but thus far this year, all that he has run up against is a suspect Fresno State team, arguably the worst team in the Pac-12 in Colorado, a lowly FCS team in Presbyterian, and a middle of the road Pac-12 team in Washington. This is clearly a significantly different challenge.

Meanwhile, Oregon remembers what happened last year when the Golden Bears nearly took down the Ducks in a 15-13 decision in Berkeley. However, we know that this team has totally figured it out in recent weeks after getting beaten in the first game of the year by the LSU Tigers. The numbers are definitely starting to mount for QB Darron Thomas, who has 842 passing yards and 12 TDs against one pick, and for a running game which has averaged just under 300 rushing yards per game.

We know that Oregon really needs to make a big time case to stay as the top one-loss team in the country, and we don’t know whether that will be the case when push comes to shove. We don’t think that the Ducks are going to let down this year, and we fully expect to see a big, big victory coming for the hosts. Expect this spread to be covered by the end of the third quarter.

Week 6 NCAA Football Pick: Oregon -24
