Oregon Football: Possible Losses on the Horizon

0 of 5

    While Oregon had a great outing against Nevada, there was a bit of weakness shown against the Ducks' last two opponents from the SEC. Will Oregon run the table in the Pac-12?

    Autzen Stadium has time and time again proved itself as one of the most effective home field advantages in college football. Will they remain undefeated at home?

    What about the road schedule?

    Oregon has some tough road games this year and possible letdowns.

Oregon Ducks in Tucson, Arizona

1 of 5

    Nick Foles will continue his passing excellence this year in the Pac-12. The Ducks can also expect the Wildcats to be stinging from their sad outing at Stillwater where Oklahoma St. put a hurt on the Cats.

    Arizona hosts Stanford this the weekend prior to the Wildcats' matchup against the Ducks in Week 4 . We'll have a better idea of Arizona's quality after the No. 6 ranked Cardinals leave town.

    For now, Oregon wins in Tucson in a close one.

Cal Bears Arrive in Eugene

2 of 5

    The Bears won at Colorado in overtime and have shown improvement from last year. Also, it's important to note the trouble that Cal gave the Ducks in Berkley a year ago.

    However, the game is in Eugene and I believe that the Bears will be recovering from a loss in Seattle the previous week.

    Oregon rolls big over Cal.

Sun Devils Bring a Challenge to Autzen

3 of 5

    Brock Osweiler is good. He's 6-foot-8 and has a monster arm that will be fun to watch on Sundays.

    ASU's overtime win against Missouri can only provide confidence and they will be ready in Eugene for the Ducks.

    Oregon loses in overtime.

Luck Down on the Farm

4 of 5

    Many pundits were quick to dethrone the Cardinal when Jim Harbaugh left for the NFL. David Shaw was an outstanding hire, however my Grandma could be their coach and they would still be my pick to win the Pac-12.

    Andrew Luck makes them good. Simple as that.

    Stanford beats the Ducks by three scores.

Trojans Bring Something to Prove to Oregon

5 of 5

    The Trojans will arrive in Eugene angry and looking for retribution. USC is not used to being anything other than top of the heap in the Pac-12 conference and wants to take their frustrations out on the Ducks.

    However, Oregon's will be even angrier coming off their loss to Stanford.

    Oregon beats USC ugly, with lots of penalties.
