(No. 3 in AP poll)
I know what you are saying, besides those in Eugene, I am nuts.
Maybe, but remember this, Oregon is the most balanced team in college football, hands down.
It has beaten a very good Stanford team, at Tennessee, and a hard team to beat at home, Arizona State.
Granted the Ducks started off the last two games slow, 28-24 at the half against Arizona State and losing 31-24 at halftime against the Cardinals, but they are a second half team and completely shut out both teams after halftime.
Oregon has the number one scoring offense and No. 15 scoring defense in the country. They are surrounded by speed and have the best running , not named Denard Robinson, in the country in LaMichael James.
Why ranked here?
They are the best team in college football.
How do they finish?
Beating Alabama in the National Championship Game. Alabama will keep it close for a half, but with all the playmakers Oregon has, it ends up pulling it out at the end.
