It was a good weekend for Oregon sports, with two huge football games coming up. Let's get to today's quack.
- It's time to head to Tucson, a place that has been very very unkind to the Ducks the last two visits. Rob Moseley has the early statistical breakdown of both teams. As for Arizona's weekend, SBNation's Arizona Blog Arizona Desert Swarm has a breakdown of Arizona's loss to Cal, which was closer than the score indicated, and turned on an inexperience mistakes by young QB Nick Foles. Arizona's offensive line had a rough night, which is encouraging for Duck fans.
- As for the always crazy Pac-10 race. If Oregon and OSU win this weekend, it'll be a Civil War for the Rose Bowl. As for other scenarios, well, I'll let new SBNation blog BCS Evolution describe the possibilities. I don't even want to think about a long week and a half of Civil War hype. I'm getting tired of it already. Thanksgiving will certainly be a nice break.
- However, no need to worry about OSU just yet. Chip Kelly and the Ducks have their sights set on Arizona, are not looking ahead, and are keeping the intense focus they have held all season.
- In basketball, the Oregon men won the BTI tournament (as expected) to start the season 3-0. Tajuan Porter set the Oregon career 3 point record over the weekend, and the Ducks showed quite a bit of promise. The athletic ability of the team was put on full display with quite a bit of pressure defense, though the team will need to improve inside, as they gave up 13 offensive rebounds to CSU.
- In recruiting news, the Ducks landed JC tight end recruit Brandon Williams. Though a bit under the radar, Williams has been very productive in college, and the coaching staff liked what they saw. Williams committed after visiting this weekend. Welcome, Brandon!
After the jump, we have a couple videos from the weekend, including KVAL's weekly Pac-10 breakdown, and Chip Kelly's postgame comments. GO DUCKS!
