GameThread: Oregon Ducks at USC Trojans

Remember what happened the last time the Ducks came to the Coliseum? Kenjon Barner remembers.

Today, the Oregon Ducks return to the Coliseum in Los Angeles for the first time since 2012 to take on the USC Trojans, winners of four straight since starting the year 1-3.

The last time these two teams faced, Kenjon Barner was the biggest star of the night in Hollywood, rushing for a school-record 321 yards and five touchdowns as No. 4 Oregon defeated No. 17 USC 62-51.

Today, the Ducks will look to win their second straight game after losing five games in a row. It will be tough for Justin Herbert to top last week's performance against ASU where he tied a school record with 489 passing yards, but with Royce Freeman rushing for just 98 yards in his past three games combined, the Oregon offense might once again need to rely on the true freshman to lead them to an upset win.

The Ducks are 17-point underdogs in this game, but after finally snapping their losing streak last week, Oregon will be hungry to get back to going on some long winning streaks.
