The No. 2 Oregon Ducks are set to face off with the up-and-down Washington State Cougars at Autzen Stadium on Saturday.
Everyone knows what to expect from the undefeated Ducks. The biggest question mark is which Wazzu team will show up in Eugene.
Will it be the team that nearly beat Auburn on the road a week before beating USC in Los Angeles? Or will it be the squad that reverted to old form in blowout losses to Stanford and Oregon State in recent weeks?
For the sake of Washington State coach Mike Leach, let's hope it is the former and that the game is competitive.
The outspoken Leach had plenty to say after his team was outscored 35-0 by Oregon State last week after holding a 24-17 lead in the third quarter. Leach went as far as to tell The Spokesman-Review that his team quit.
The Ducks have dominated the series as of late, but this is the best Washington State team in years.
Will the Cougars let the loss to Oregon State linger, or will they come out on fire and try to shock the world by taking down the Ducks?
