Oregon keys to the game
Limit Bryce Love
This is obviously easier said than done, as no team has been able to bottle up Love this year. The junior tailback is averaging an absurd 206 rushing yards per game. His “worst” game of the season was last week when he rushed for 152 yards vs. Utah. Stanford will no doubt look to get Love going early, but if Oregon can limit him and force Keller Chryst to make plays with his arm, the Ducks will have a much better chance to pull of the upset. Last season, in a 52-27 loss to Stanford, the Ducks gave up 282 yards rushing. Though most of those were to Christian McCaffrey, Love picked up 82 yards on only five carries.
Come out fast
Oregon has a golden opportunity to start strong on Saturday as Stanford will be without two of its defensive starters for the first half. Defensive tackle Harrison Phillips and linebacker Peter Kolombayi will be forced to sit out for a half by virtue of receiving targeting ejections last week vs. Utah. This could take pressure off of Oregon’s inexperienced quarterback and could help the Ducks come out firing early. The Ducks will be getting back the services of their two best wide receivers, Charles Nelson and Dillon Mitchell. Nelson has been out since Week 3 after pickup up an ankle injury. Mitchell missed last week’s game vs. Washington State with a concussion. Having more weapons for Burmesiter, as well as continuing to rely on tailbacks Royce Freeman and Kani Benoit, could help the Ducks get an early lead, and force Stanford to pass the ball more.
Get pressure on Keller Chryst
The Ducks lead the nation with 24 sacks through six games. It’s vital that they continue to bring the pressure against Stanford. Defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt does a great job at designing blitz schemes that confuse opponents, and though Stanford’s offensive line is always one of the strongest units in the Pac-12, the Ducks could cause some havoc up front. Limiting Love’s big plays will also be key, but the Ducks need to make things uncomfortable for Chryst and make plays that can take the Stanford offense off of the field.
