On Saturday in Eugene, Oregon a team will claim an inside track to the first ever College Football Playoff. Pac-12 powerhouse Oregon will host Big-10 co-favorite Michigan State in a battle of Top 10 programs.

Let's just call it flash versus smash. 

Oregon, currently ranked third in the country according to the Associated Press, comes in fresh off a 62-13 blowout over South Dakota. Michigan State, the defending Rose Bowl champion, is ranked eighth in the country and took down Jacksonville State 45-7 this past weekend. 

The Ducks come in featuring one of the best offenses in college football. The offense ranked second in the nation in total yards in 2013 and third in points per game. Meanwhile, the Spartans defense was ranked third in the country last season in points per game and second in total yards.

It’s a clash of clashes and should be treated as such. ESPN’s College Gameday will be broadcasting from the University of Oregon campus on Saturday morning. This will be the sixth consecutive year that the program has taken its talents to Eugene, though it will be the first featuring Oregon and a non-Pac-12 opponent. 

In terms of the actual game, here’s what you need to know:

Date: Saturday, Sept. 6th

Time: 3:30 p.m. PT

Place: Autzen Stadium (Eugene, OR)

TV: FOX

Spread: Oregon -12 according to Oddsshark.com.
