Do we have a better chance of winning than we did over Arizona State or USC? Hell no! Do we have more Buffaloes? Hell yes!

What? How on earth is Oregon last in the Pac-12 in kickoff returns? Is it because they don't get very many per game or what? That number is just ridiculous.

Yea, you don't have to pass all that much when you are running for 317 yards a game. The Ducks are averaging 200 more yards per game than the Buffaloes. 200 yards is two-thirds of what the Buffs average each game in total offense.

Ouch, the USC game killed the Buffaloes defensive pressure numbers. They went from 28th to 49th nationally in tackles for a loss and 38th to 53rd in sacks. I imagine we'll see those numbers go down again this week.
