Dion Jordan and Ricky Heimuli will be key in limiting Wisconsin's physically rushing attack.
Not a lot of quack out there this morning, but there is some quality.
- Since the Rose Bowl matchup was announced, we've heard a lot about the size of Wisconsin's offensive line. But Oregon's defense is not intimidated, and don't even seem to be concerned. With everyone talking like Oregon will just get run over, the defense is looking to go out and prove they can beat Wisconsin physically. They'll also be looking to confuse the Badger offensive line, that "has some pass protection issues" according to Isaac Remington. Wisconsin also has not faced a two-gap defense, like the one Oregon uses.
- With Cliff Harris being suspended most of the season, many Duck fans expected a significant drop-off in the secondary. But Oregon's defensive backfield is playing at the same level it did last season, large part in thanks to Terrance Mitchell, who has become "the guy" in Oregon's defensive backfield. In the past few games, he has (nearly) shut down opposing team's top receiver.
- With Oregon taking on Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl, you knew this was coming. Kurt takes a look back at the 2000 and 2001 series between the Ducks and the Badgers. Both were great games, and we'll probably see another on January 2nd.
- Oregon women's basketball has been pretty bad on the road this year. They'll be looking to get their first road win against Nevada tonight.
