Away: Colorado Buffaloes
Colorado enters the game with an electrifying passing attack that has set the college football scene ablaze. Ranking second-best in the FBS with an impressive 418 passing yards per game, they’ve been the architects of some spectacular aerial displays.
However, their defense has struggled, conceding an average of 460.3 total yards per game. When it comes to third-down conversions, the Buffaloes are solid, sitting at 28th in the nation with a 48.9% success rate on offense. Defensively, they have work to do, ranking 17th-worst with a 48% third-down conversion rate allowed. On the turnover front, Colorado boasts a top-25 margin at +3, showing their ability to capitalize on opponents’ mistakes.
While their passing game shines brightly, the Buffaloes have room for improvement in the running game, ranking sixth-worst with just 61 rushing yards per game. Their rushing defense hasn’t fared much better, allowing 195.3 yards per game, the 14th-worst in the nation.
Quarterback Shedeur Sanders has been a standout performer, with 1,251 passing yards, averaging 417 yards per game, and a remarkable 78.7% completion rate, accompanied by 10 touchdowns and only 1 interception.
Dylan Edwards, a versatile player contributing both as a rusher and receiver, is a vital asset with 136 rushing yards, 160 receiving yards, and a combined 4 touchdowns.
Home: Oregon Ducks
On the opposing side of the field, the No. 10 Oregon Ducks bring a balanced game to the matchup. Their offense has been nothing short of stellar, ranking third-best in the FBS with an astonishing 587 total yards per game. Their passing game, in particular, has been a force to be reckoned with, securing the fifth spot with 363.3 passing yards per game.
Defensively, the Ducks have shown their mettle by ranking 30th in the nation, allowing just 285.7 yards per game. Furthermore, their passing defense is equally impressive, sitting at 15th-best with 158.7 passing yards allowed per game.
Oregon excels in the rushing game as well, ranking 12th-best with 223.7 rushing yards per game. Their run defense, however, ranks 71st, allowing 127 rushing yards per game.
When it comes to third-down efficiency, the Ducks’ defense holds strong, ranking 38th with a 33.3% third-down conversion rate allowed. Offensively, they’ve been even more effective, ranking 16th-best with a 52.8% third-down conversion rate.
Perhaps one of the most eye-catching stats for the Ducks is their turnover margin. With six forced turnovers (25th in the FBS) and zero turnovers committed (first in the FBS), they boast an impressive +6 turnover margin, the fourth-best in college football.
Quarterback Bo Nix has been exceptional with 893 passing yards, 8 touchdowns, and an impressive 77.6% completion rate. His ability to lead the offense will be a key factor.
Khyree Jackson and Jeffrey Bassa are major players for The Ducks’ defense, with interceptions and tackles that can turn the tide of the game.
