Odds: Oregon opened as 14 point favorites, and has risen slightly to -14.5. The over/under opened at 70 and has risen to 74.
Final Thoughts: I'm not sure what else can be said at this point. After all the Ducks have been through this year, it comes down to one single game. One game to give Mark Helfrich and Marcus Mariota their first conference title. One game to end any questions about an "Arizona problem." One game to reach the first College Football Playoff.
We know what's at stake. But we also know that this game rests in Oregon's hands. They have the better team. They have the best player in the country. The Pac-12 Championship is there for the taking.
While Oregon's defense has been, let's say, uneven at times this season, this is the best offense in school history. They have whooped the best defenses on the schedule, and only injuries and their own lack of execution have slowed down the Ducks.
When the Ducks score 30 points or more, they win. It's that simple. Mark Helfrich is undefeated when hitting that mark. We have a pretty good idea of what we'll get out of the Oregon defense, and also the Arizona offense. So, in my mind, this game comes down to the Oregon offense. It's in the hands of Marcus Mariota, Royce Freeman, Jake Fisher, and the rest of Oregon's dangerous offensive attack. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
