SEATTLE, Wash. — The Border War will be renewed on Saturday Nov. 5 when the Washington Huskies host No. 6 Oregon Ducks. Washington holds the all-time record with a 58-40-5 over the Ducks. Oregon has won a school-seven straight in the series — with all victories being by 20 points or more — dating back to 2004.
The Ducks (7-1, 5-0 Pac-12) continue to dominate their opponents in conference play and are coming off of a 43-28 victory over Washington State on Oct. 29 at Autzen Stadium.
Oregon has started 5-0 in the conference for the third straight year under head coach Chip Kelly.
Washington’s head coach, Steve Sarkisian, has the Huskies (6-2, 4-1) playing their best football in recent years, and would love nothing more than upsetting the favored Ducks on their home turf.
This Pac-12 match-up looks to be a competitive one with a slight advantage for the visiting team, and here are three things to look out for.
The Price of Washington’s offense:
Sophomore Keith Price has taken advantage of his time on the field this season. He is tied for the conference lead with 23 passing touchdowns with Stanford’s Andrew Luck.
Oregon’s returning starters:
Both LaMichael James and Darron Thomas returned from injuries against Washington State. Neither player looked to be in the form they were before being injured. Thomas was pulled at halftime for freshman Bryan Bennett and Bennett led the Oregon offense to 28 second-half points.
The dawg house defense
: Washington has had issues stopping their opposition from scoring this season and they are allowing 33.4 points per game — which ranks 10th in the Pac-12.
The game is scheduled for a 10:30 p.m. EST kick-off.
