The Oregon Ducks (5-1, 3-0) pick up their next game on the road in an afternoon conference game with the Colorado Buffaloes (1-5, 0-3).

Injury questions surround this game. Many wonder about the health of Oregon Ducks quarterback Darron Thomas and star running back LaMichael James, and Colorado faces their own questions of uncertainty as their leading tackler, Douglas Rippy, and starting running back, Rodney Stewart, will not be seeing action in this game.

Oregon has come out confident, and starter Lavasier Tuinei said, "It doesn’t matter who’s playing. We could put Dustin Haines out there, we’ll still win."

Tuinei insinuated that their fourth-string, redshirt freshman could start at quarterback and they could still beat Colorado on Saturday. The excitement surrounding Oregon football and in-conference play has been extraordinary, and the Ducks look to continue their winning ways in their afternoon showdown.

Under the leadership of head coach Chip Kelly, the Ducks will try to send an unapologetic welcome to Colorado in their first game against each other now that they are in the same conference.
