Today, the Oregon Ducks take on the UCLA Bruins at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The Ducks are hoping to avoid a free fall, having lost two games in a row and three of their last four.
Oregon is coming off a 49-7 whomping on the road last weekend against Stanford, the first time the Ducks were held to seven points or less in a decade.
Meanwhile, UCLA has also lost three of their last four games. Their only win in that stretch was a close 27-23 victory over Colorado, so they very easily could've been sitting at 2-4 heading into this one.
Both teams are at a crossroads in their respective seasons, with the Ducks sitting at 4-3 and the Bruins at 3-3. Today’s outcome could set the tone for the rest of the way for these squads.
