In case you were wondering, this is the same number of Buffaloes as last year... so there's that.
We know enough about Oregon that we don't really need to look at their stats. It kind of just serves to make them even scarier. That big ole number one in the national category for rushing offense looms quite large. The Buffs have a number one of their own (conference, but #10 in the nation is not too shabby) in the rushing defense category, but I'd expect that will change quite significantly after this weekend. If the Buffs can keep the Ducks below 200-250 rushing then you'd have to consider it a win.
The Buffs didn't take too huge of a hit in the passing offense category because of some of the garbage time offense that Connor Wood was able to muster. It's pretty amazing that six of the top passing attacks are in the Pac-12. Lots more work for the Buffs secondary this season.
It may be the Ducks offense that gets all the pub but their defense is a force in it's own right. Oregon is number four in the country in scoring defense, allowing just under 11 points per game. They are allowing 186 yards against through the air so Buffs fans will have to hope that that number goes up when Connor Wood throws for 200-300 yards (a guy can dream right?)
