The Ducks are on a current five-game winning streak heading into the game against the Utes.
Here is a link to the game preview of tonight's matchup.
Conference play begins for both teams tonight as a total of four Pac-12 games are on tap Friday. USC hosts Washington, and UCLA takes on Washington State at home.
Oregon's next opponent, Colorado, is at Oregon State.
In the past seasons, the Ducks begin conference play on a high note despite the inconsistencies during non-conference games. Look back to last season when Oregon knocked off UCLA and USC at home. Both LA schools suffered their first loss of the season.
First-year students, Troy Brown and Kenny Wooten, have made immediate impacts this season. Both will need to continue making significant contributions.
The game thread is now open. Please be respectful.
