Quack Fix: Ducks prepare for physical Utah team, rise to 4th in CFP rankings

Highlights (from Tuesday's practice)
  • If there is a team this year that has the ability to execute the "blueprint" that has taken down Oregon in recent years, it might just be Utah. They can grind it out in the run game, and they have a disruptive defensive front. But if practice yesterday was any indication, the Oregon defensive line might be able to match the Utah defensive line. They were all over the place in practice, getting into the backfield constantly against the scout team.
  • A key for Oregon will be containing Utah RB Devontae Booker, who has been successful despite Utah's anemic passing game. From Coach Helfrich's comments, it sounds like Oregon will be keying on stopping the run, and not allowing them to get a play-action game working.

In the latest installment of Mac and Mose, they review the Stanford game. While there is plenty of praise for the offense, they have some good comments on Erick Dargan, and how his physical play is helping set the tone for the defense and been a big part of the improvement shown over the past months.
