For Oregon ... The Ducks can secure a winning season with a victory. They can also keep their slim Pac-12 North title hopes alive.
For Utah … The Utes need a win to keep pace with and/or pull ahead of the frontrunners in the Pac-12 South as the season winds down.
For Oregon … The Ducks are 4-1 against Utah since the Utes joined the Pac-12 in 2011.
For Utah ... The Utes haven’t beaten the Ducks since a 62-20 outburst in Eugene in 2015.
THE CRYSTAL BALL
For Oregon ... The Ducks will be tough to beat if quarterback Justin Herbert lives up to his pre-NFL hype.
For Utah … Jason Shelley delivers in his first collegiate start as the Utes bounce back from loss at ASU.
PLAYER TO WATCH
Jason Shelley, Utah quarterback: The redshirt freshman steps into the spotlight in place of the injured Tyler Huntley.
Oregon’s Justin Herbert vs. Utah’s defense: The Utes will no doubt like to force some quick decisions from the talented Oregon quarterback.
“With Utah, which is a great football program, it starts and ends with their physicality on both sides of the ball.”
— Oregon coach Mario Cristobal
“We are just focused on Oregon this week. I guess there are dozens of possible scenarios of what could happen (in the Pac-12 South) so why waste your time with it.”
— Utah coach Kyle Whittingham
