What does Oregon get because of its troubles following a 52-27 reduction a week at home against Stanford? : A road game against a better version of this Cardinal. The Ducks play at No. 11 Utah Saturday at Salt Lake City, Utah, and on paper have no chance to win, or even remain close. So much so that the 14-point spread seems to be an insult to Utah by about ten points. Oregon (3-7, 1-6 Pac-12) will roll into Utah (8-2, 5-2) with all the second-worst rushing defense in the Pac-12 in 255.4 yards allowed per game to face the hottest racing attack in the seminar. “Same thing as last week, really,” Oregon defensive coordinator Brady Hoke said. “You’ve got to stop the run. There’s no doubt about it” Uh oh! Oregon has not stopped the run all season. Not against UC Davis and Virginia in what seems like ions ago. Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey ran rampant last week, scoring three touchdowns as the Cardinal, owners of the worst offense in the conference, averaging 340 yards per game, put up 540 yards of total offense on the Ducks. Utah, averaging 433.7 metres per game is much better on offense than Stanford thanks to the amazing performances of running back Joe Williams. He”retired” for four games to start the season just to be talked back into playing. Since his return, Williams has averaged 216 total yards and 156.5 yards rushing per game. He has gained 939 rushing yards on 7.0 yards per carry. “He’s maybe the most explosive and the quickest of some of the backs we’ve had here as far as a home run-type back which can extend the distance from anywhere on the field,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham told colleagues this week. To make matters worse for Oregon, Williams runs behind a veteran offensive line. “They are physical upfront,” Hoke said. “Quite senior-oriented offensive line with three men up there which have played a lot of football.” The Ducks are the opposite with one senior beginning on a young defense that has rotated through 14 defensive linemen this season. “We had a fantastic week of practiceprecisely the same thing we did the week before,” Hoke said. “Our men have come out and fought, and been physical each time we go on the field.” That intensity has not translated into strong performances on game days. Saturday will probably be no different. Read more: evergreenunited.org
