Oregonlive asks; can CJ Verdell keep up his strong season as conference play continues? Verdell ranks first in the conference in rushing on the year and 15th nationally with over 750 yards. USC ranks 10th in the conference in rush defense this year.

Basketball season is coming and the men’s and women’s teams will be opening up today with the Green and Yellow scrimmage with the men playing at 6:00 and the women at 7:00. The women are preseason #1 ranked nationally.

24/7 Sports says that the improvement in the Oregon rushing attack is based on improved blocking. The improvement has come from not just the offensive line, but also the tight ends and the wide receivers making big plays on the outside to open up the run.
