(AP) — Here are some notable points at this week’s Pac-12 conference:
Games of the Week: No. 12 Oregon (1-0) faces No. 3 Ohio (1-0) on Saturday in front of more than 100,000 fans at Ohio Stadium. The Birth of the Eyes was a favorite of the two touchdowns to open this week. The duck won 31-24 against Fresno State University last weekend. This is a rather surprising result of dropping Oregon into the AP Top 25. Shake to collect nearly 500 yards in a total attack. Freshman quarterback CJ Stroud threw 294 yards and four touchdowns. Kick-off is 9am Pacific time.
This week’s match: Washington, Michigan. Huskys (0-1) lost 13-7 at home to lower division Montana in the opening round. Washington was ranked 20th before the defeat, and Husky dropped out of the top 25 altogether. Husky is the fifth ranked FBS team to lose to the FCS team since 2007. Their resilience is tested in the fight against Michigan from Route 47-14 in western Michigan. Wolverines was injured during the match after losing senior receiver Ronnie Bell during the season due to a right knee injury.
In the numbers: Oregon isn’t the only one with a formidable opponent on Saturday. Colorado plays the 5th Texas A & M in Denver. Buffalo defeated northern Colorado 35-7. Colorado leads the series against Aggie’s 6-3. … This week’s history does not endorse Oregon and Colorado. Since 2015, when Stanford knocked off the 4th Notre Dame, the Pac-12 team has not beat the top five teams in non-conference games. … Pac-12 was 6-6 at the opening weekend. The South area worked much better than the North area, reaching 5-1.
Player to watch: USC receiver Drake London continues to rise as an NFL draft outlook. He made 12 catches at 137 yards with a 30-7 Trojan horse victory over San Jose State University last weekend. Since Michael Pittman Jr. played 13 games in 2019, his 12 catches have been the most common for USC receivers. Pitman currently belongs to Indianapolis Colts. London, a 6-foot-5 junior, had a 502-yard receive and three touchdowns in six games last season.
UPSET watch: Recall that time when Stanford University director Jim Harbaugh made a famous statement. “We don’t bow to anyone at Stanford University.” Well, he was talking about USC. Although it has been a little cold these days, the rivalry between the two teams has intensified over the years. The Cardinal could make a fuss at the USC’s turmoil meeting at the LA Memorial Coliseum, especially after a humble 24/7 defeat to Kansas last weekend. The No. 14 Trojan beats San Jose State University 30-7 and is unlikely to lose on the roster.
