Make your predictions here. Though this game is being discussed heavily in the College Gameday thread, this thread is being created so we can have a poll to see where everybody stands. Please choose which team you think will cover the spread. (currently 7.5, opened at 7) Voice any predictions about the game here, and we can look back after the game and see who was on point and who had it all wrong. I'm on record as saying that my Ducks will win by a comfortable margin.

I say ASU struggles big time in trying to contain our offense, but will make a few big plays with blitzes and things. I've never been real high on Jaison Williams, but look for him to have a huge day. He should be matched up on the same kid he torched last year, Justin Tryon. All 5-10 180 lbs of him. Williams' struggles with his hands have been costly for us this year, but I look for him to step it up this week and remind some of what they saw from him at times last year.

I also look to see Ed Dickson play a big role over the middle if ASU chooses to focus heavily on containing our running game, as expected. Jonathan Stewart and the offensive line will grind it out and wear down ASU's front wall all day and just get better with each drive. Expect to see a big day from Stewart and Crenshaw on the ground. Look for Dixon to take whatever the defense gives him. His success will largely depend on whether or not the ASU defense plays disciplined and keeps their lanes closed and doesn't bite on the fakes. If they bring good pressure, look for Dixon to rip them up on the ground. If they fail to hurry him, look for Dixon to hook up with his receivers for a lot of big plays through the air. Look for Williams to score on a big run after the catch at some point in the game. Pflugrad will be the safety net who is open most of the time, and Dickson will get loose over the deep middle at least once.

Defensively, I expect us to put a ton of pressure on Carpenter and try to rattle him early. I want to see us hit him a few times and let that thumb hit the turf. Our secondary should be solid, and you can expect Thurmond III to have that left flat locked down all day with his sure tackling/attacking style. I don't think ASU has the WR's to beat us consistently. I'm sure we'll give up a big play or two, but we should be able to create some as well. I expect them to test us deep on their first drive to try and keep us honest and eliminate any doubts about Carpenter's health. Whether it be Carpenter fumbling or throwing interceptions, I see at least 2 turnovers coming from him.

Their running game took a shot when they lost Torain, but they do have capable backs who have stepped in for him. Their O-line's strength is run blocking, but I'm still not impressed with them. Aliotti has done an excellent job shoring up our defense to the point that we have looked downright scary at times. Everybody should be flying to the ball like usual. I expect ASU to pull out a trick play or two, and whether or not they are successful in that will be huge for them.

My official prediction is Oregon 45 ASU 24

Their non conference schedule was weak, san jose state, san diego state, didnt they also play la tech? Yes colorado is a decent team. I just think they are overrated and the ducks will dominate this whole game. Oregon 48 ASU 14

we hear that every time; the sec is sooooo tough; we just blew out a msu team that beat uk

2 years ago we had a bunch of freshman that were supposed to be 2 touchdown underdogs against the sec champions; those freshman went into their own backyard and put up 38 points

put up over 400 rushin yards against the 2001 miami hurricanes (would have won if winslow wouldnt have made a 1 handed catch)

we can throw if we want to; its just we dont need to; and the offense is tailored to the players---when rod was at tulane it was more balanced, at clemson it was more rushing

when brown comes in it is more passing---which is the way it seems to be heading with current recruits---passers who can also run well

I know, I hate when my Ducks are the overwhelming favorite. Nobody is impressed when you win a game that everybody had you favored in. But if you lose, everybody thinks you were vastly overrated heading into the game. You guys are in a great position to vault yourselves into the title game if you can steal a win up here.

Completely agree with you there. The only time that your point is not valid is when people talk about the SEC because obviously everyone in the SEC is great, so when Miss. State beats Kentucky it means they are a great team (even though they were blown out by LSU and WVU).

Except that the Ducks have covered the spread by a large margin all season. I know a few weeks ago they had actually covered by a larger margin than any other team in the country. Not sure if that's still true or not, but it really has no bearing on this game. Again, the bookmakers don't create a spread that reflects their opinion on the outcome of the game. They create a spread that is designed to elicit equal action on both sides. For all we know, they may have the Ducks winning by 30. But what happens if they put the spread at 30? Public opinion is what drives the line, first and foremost. Usually, an 8-0 team facing a conference foe on the road who is 7-1 would produce a spread that was either even, or slightly favoring one or the other. This 7Ĺ already reflects the overwhelming public opinion favoring the Ducks. The bottom line is that the Devils and Ducks will decide what the final score is, not Vegas.

Well right now all the action is on Oregon and the Over. Your not going to get both of them. Its either going to be Oregon and the under or ASU and the over. This game will not go Oregon and over. The only time games usually go favorite and over is when the public is betting the underdog heavy (which is very rare.) So they dont care if it goes favorite and over because the majority of the action is on the dog. Vegas tries to get the action at 50/50, but for 90% of the games the percentages are not near 50/50. They are pretty lopsided. Are you saying that the line has never had an affect on a game?

No not at all. I believe gambling has had a huge impact on college football over the years. If Oregon doesn't cover, that would definitely make me wonder, depending on how it occurs. I've witnessed countless questionable occurrences over the years that directly affected the outcome of bets.

As far as the over/under, that's mostly dependent on how the game plays out. Things like field position/special teams and big plays will determine how that shakes out. I'm not touching the points on this one, but I think there's a very good chance it can go over. But you have to think that both teams will look to run the ball first, so that could slow things down a bit and keep the score in check. And we're missing a lot of our big play guys.

You tell me that I shouldn't be wagering if I think there's such a thing as a lock pick, but here you are acting as though you can't pick a favorite and an over in the same game. Superstition should have no role in wagering, imo. You think the Ducks cover, you take them. You think the points go over, you take that too. Both hit all the time. You shouldn't put yourself in a box when making your picks. It should be all about your perception of what will actually happen in the game.

And as far as the 50/50 thing, of course many games are lopsided. That's just inevitable. But that doesn't change the fact that the ultimate goal of the bookmaker is to draw the same amount of action on both sides. That is what the perfect line is. Not a line that predicts the outcome, but a line that predicts public opinion. And how the hell do you know how much action is on each team in each of these games? Do you think published reports are honest and accurate, or even possible, considering the countless wagering outlets that exist today? I know if I were a book, I'd use that as a tool to elicit more action on one side or the other.

I agree that favorite and over hits, but not when 90% of the public is betting the side, and 90% of the public is betting the over in the same game. I know the percentages of how much of the action is being played on each side.

Some online websites provide how much action they get on both sides, and they are always accurate. Teams that are bet 90% or more almost always lose. I would say 8 out of 10 times a team is 90% or more are losers.

Yes 8 of 10 plays when a side is bet on a 90% percentile or higher. I would say yes that is a fact. But just keep in mind high 80s and 90s are 2 different animals. When a 90% comes around I will be happy to PM you and you can keep track if this is true or not.

4 dropped passed by Williams. He's big and quite fast for his size but i'm sorry, that's pathetic for a starting WR.

sounds kinda like a certain dallas cowboys reciever i know hah

By comparison, I think ASU has less than 4 dropped passes as a team on the entire year.

Thanks man. But don't jinx us. We've seen some crazy comebacks this year. I'll be surprised to see them cover though.

Ryan Leaf's brother is in! Sweet! But this game has proven to me that the Ducks are going to have a shot at the National Championship...

If the Ducks win out, I don't see how Dixon wouldn't win the Heisman.

Props to Carpenter for not turning it over until just now. I had him pegged for a multi-turnover game.

He appears to be fine, but the coaches are being conservative right now.

Twisted his knee a while back. Looks ok on the sideline but the coaches think we'll be fine without him.

oregon jumps lsu right?

Yes they do, they got to. They beat #4 by 2 scores while lsu barely pulled off a win against #17. Doesnt matter oregon with end up in the national title game. Ducks and bukeyes.

I think Oregon should jump LSU, but I don't see it happening. I was really impressed by Dixon, he made some great throws, and would have had even better stats if Williams didn't drop a couple huge passes.

On a side note, lol at Leaf. Dude's sliding in the open field with no one around him.

I'd like to see LSU v. Oregon, just because I think it would be a great game to watch (especially if LSU used Perilloux and Holliday a little more), but OSU won't lose, unless Michigan can pull something out.

If LSU runs the table with only one loss, including the SEC Championship Game (meanwhile the Pac 10 has no conference championship game, gg), there's no way they don't get in. Even if Oregon blows out the rest of their schedule by 40 per, and only have themselves to blame for not running the table because of stupid turnovers against a Cal Bears team with no legit defense.

i say Kansas vs. Oregon
now thats BOLD
Hawaii makes a major bowl with at large bid.

Major Controversy Arises as Hawaii and Oregon both win. Championship is very disputes, mostly in part of Hawai'i-Washington Shootout to end Hawaii's season. both teams with 550+ yards of total offense and this game proves Hawaii is for real and gets them into that big game.
Meanwhile Oregon walks all over Arizona, UCLA, and Oregon State.
this sets up said Kansas-Oregon game and Oregon wins convincingly by 10.
Or the damn SEC bias kicks in and Kansas, Hawai'i, and Oregon are all undefeated as LSU gets DEMOLISHED in the National Championship by Oregon.
i dont trust Ohio States ability to beat Michigan and i believe it will not happen. OSU is extremely overrated and couldnt handle Oregon, Kansas, or Hawai'i on offense.
but OSU will lose to Michigan, or Mike Hart, Chad Henne, and their really good tackle(forgot last name) will all be scarred for life and they will be known as the team that couldnt beat Ohio State

btw LSU will either lose to Arkansas or whoever they play in the SEC CHAMP

Well i must admit I thought ASU would win this game mostly because I am student there. But Oregon out played the sun devils in every aspect of the game, I respect the ducks and their program's ability to execute definitely beat us. Iím not going to say well if we didnít do this or that we could of won the game. The bottom line is that Oregon beat a good football team and pretty damn convincingly. I hope for ASU to rebound and finish strong but the ducks deserve a shot at the NC.

It will be Ohio St vs LSU, the BCS loves the SEC which gets a lot more hype than Oregon. The NCG should be Ohio St. vs Oregon but you'll never see it unless somebody upsets LSU. The Pac 10 outside of USC gets no respect.
However, LSU will get slaughtered by Ohio St. as they simply don't have a good QB. and will be in against a very emotional Ohio St. team who will be out to prove, simular to Florida last year, that they and The Big 10 are the best.
