    5 Keys to the Schedule

    – The Ducks are building up in their non-conference schedule. UC Davis, then Virginia, then the trip to Nebraska. They’re easing into the season.

    – Beat Nebraska, and it should be a 4-0 start with Colorado to start the Pac-12 campaign. Going to Washington State will be the big North test in the first half of the season, and then comes the showdown against Washington before getting a week off.

    – Missing UCLA from the South isn’t bad, and there’s no Arizona and the dangerous offense to deal with, but the Ducks have to travel to USC and going to Utah for the revenge game isn’t going to be easy.

    – Washington and Stanford are making the trip to Eugene, but three of the last four games are on the road including the Civil War date at Oregon State.

    – WATCH OUT FOR … the road trip to Washington State. It shouldn’t be a problem if the Oregon offense is rolling, but with Washington up ahead and a week off to follow, it should be a wild and fun firefight.
