No. 12 BYU (2-0) will be the No. 25 Oregon Ducks’ first rated opponent at Autzen Stadium in four years as they attempt to bounce back from an early-season setback to No. 1 Georgia and demonstrate their ability to compete with a ranked club.
Despite not having a depth chart going into the game, Oregon is loaded with talent at every position and is led by its two inside linebackers, Justin Flowe and Noah Sewell.
BYU just defeated No. 17 Baylor in double overtime, and the Cougars’ attack will be led by BYU QB Jaren Hall. Oregon will want to keep the perimeter; Georgia used this strategy, and other teams could try to use it as well.

The betting line for Saturday’s game shows Oregon as a 3.5-point favorite, and it has been that way for the past week. Oregon was a 6.5-point favorite when the line first opened in May. The way BYU played against Baylor demonstrated why they ought to be considered among the top 15 athletes and a possible dark horse in the college football playoffs. Oregon aims to obstruct BYU’s hopes of competing in a New Years’ Six bowl or the playoffs.
“Obviously really pumped to play a BYU team that is very talented. They have great skill “Dan Lanning, the head coach, stated. “I’m about as eager to play them as I am to see our supporters in the audience. They will have a chance to have an effect in this significant game. I was quite happy with the turnout on Saturday. They’re going to be louder and more intense the next week, I can already tell.
The Autzen crowd may definitely have a major influence on this sort of game, but the squad we’re about to face is a tremendously skilled one. They play the game with a certain amount of roughness and ferocity, and the more I watched the movie, the more respect I had for them and the work they perform. That’s entertaining to watch on screen, and I have no doubt that our guys will enjoy the game.”
In the history of their respective programs, the Ducks and Cougars have faced off six times, with a three-game tie in the series. The most recent meeting took place in the 2006 Las Vegas Bowl, where BYU humiliated the Ducks 38-8.
