The battle for the Pac-12 North is making it's biggest stop in Eugene, OR this week with No. 2 Oregon facing No. 13 Stanford.
If the Ducks win, they clinch the Pac-12 North and will host the Pac-12 Championship Game against either USC or UCLA, pending the outcome of Saturday's game at the Rose Bowl.
If Stanford wins, it has the opportunity to play for the first Rose Bowl in school history since 1999 if the Ducks also lose the following week to rival Oregon State.
The Cardinal enter the game with the No. 1 rushing defense in the nation, while Oregon is on the flip side of the coin, with the third-best rushing offense in the nation, making way for one of the grittiest battles of trench warfare the world has seen since World War I.
