- Short Summary Point 1: Oregon will win the game.
- Short Summary Point 2: Utah will not cover the spread for the game.
- Short Summary Point 3: The game will be under the points total.
Oregon is entering the game with being the third-ranked team of the nation, and with only one loss. Utah is 7-3, both teams will make bowl games and Oregon has the chance to make the college playoff.
Both teams will be playing with cloudy and a chance of rain, on a 43 temperature day. The weather should not be a factor unless it rains. Oregon will be playing in a hostile environment, so Utah definitely has a home-field advantage.
Both teams have been playing good football this season, and are on track to making the Pac-12 championship. The game should be a close game and should be a one-possession game. Let’s get into the prediction.

Oregon: The Mighty Ducks
Oregon is 8-1 and has one of the best rushing attacks in the nation. Their passing game is subpar, but Brown has shown he can pass the ball effectively a couple of times this year. Oregon will win this game by the ground game.
Their defense with Kayvon Thibodeaux is an elite squad and will pressure the quarterback throughout the game. The defense is only giving up 22 points per game, with around 360 yards. Oregon also plays pretty clean football, with only giving up 9 turnovers (so far).
Oregon might look like the favorites, but they are not. If they want to win they have to go to Utah (in a really hostile crowd) and run the ball. While they keep possession of the football and limit penalties.
Utah: The Powerful Utes
Utah is favored to win the game, after going on a really impressive win streak in the last part of the season. They have a good offense (that is similar to Oregon) that will want to put points on Oregon’s defense. They also average less than one turnover per game.

Their defense gives up 23 points per game, but limits teams to lease yards. The Utes also have a powerful running attack and have better passing. However, they do have a hard time stopping the run (with Oregon being elite at).
If the Utes want to win the game they will want the same game plan as Oregon. Rush the ball, keep control of the clock, and limit penalties (and of course turnovers). Utah has a good football team, and they test Oregon.
