The Eagle’s Kellis Robinett says
Edge to Oregon. The Wildcats need to run the ball to open the pass. If that happens, their receivers could have big days against the Ducks. If it doesn’t, and Oregon can go after Collin Klein with its pass rush, throwing for big yardage will be difficult.
The Oregonian’s Aaron Fentress says
Edge to Oregon. K-State spreads the ball around nicely and has some quality receivers, led by Harper. But UO’s defensive backs have helped the team force the most turnovers in college football.
