At long last, football is back! Oregon’s opening opponent today is Portland State. The Ducks are looking for their 19th straight opening win, having last lost an opener to Indiana in 2004.
Oregon should win handily; however, all eyes will be on the offensive line, the defensive pass rush, and special teams. The defense and special teams need to show significant improvement over last season.

Also, if you have not read it, Tristan (one of ATQ’s new writers) has an interesting history behind the Ducks/Vikings series.
The start of the new season is always exciting, but with the demise of the Pac-12 this season will be bittersweet. It’s the end of the structure of college football as we’ve come to know it, and things will never be the same - so enjoy every moment while you can.

And now it’s time to get ready for some football!
