Last week, ATQers chose five of the six conference games correctly but were an atrocious 2-of-6 against the spread. One last week to increase our percentages, and there’s only one game to choose from.

THIS WEEK’S RESIDENT GENIUS IS:

Alfred Jodocus Kwak

Oregon 38 : 24 Oregon State. Herbert takes the field with a vengeance, throwing for 310 yards and 2 TDs (JJ3 and JJ6) in his final Civil War game.

The rushing attack does major damage with CHL running for 2 TDs on three carries and both Verdell and Dye cracking 100 yards. The Ducks have a special teams TD in the offing, as well. Thibs emerges from a disappointing ASU performance with three sacks and a forced fumble.”

SEASON RECORD: UO (10-2, 8-1) / UU (11-1, 8-1)

NOTES: No other PAC-12 Championship game compares to this season’s in terms of stakes and competition. Utah has a lot more to lose with a possible playoff appearance and the Rose Bowl on the line, while Oregon could potentially land in the granddaddy of them all regardless of the outcome.

The Ducks average 35.8 points per game and 452.3 yards while the Utes 35.6 points per game and 453.6 yards. They have strikingly similar results against a handful of PAC-12 schools and each boast of a philosophy built on toughness.

The weather will reportedly be windy and wet, meaning we could be in store for a hard-fought, mud-covered Championship game for the ages!
