This Thursday at 6 p.m. PDT, the California Golden Bears are heading up to Eugene, Oregon to take on the fast and athletic No. 9 Oregon Ducks. The Bears are 3-1, a good record for a team that had many question marks entering the season, specifically quarterback Zach Maynard.
Last week, the Bears saw many of the problems that were apparent in the first three weeks of the season become magnified in a 31-23 loss to Washington on the road. It will take a lot of work to get things to go right for the Bears to bounce back from that loss and avenge last year's 15-13 loss to the Ducks.
Here is what the Bears will have to do right on their end of the ball to win this game.
