Key Players: Most everyone. QB Marcus Mariota, So (1,003 yards, 9 TD's), RB De'Anthony Thomas, Jr (42 carries, 338 yards, 6 TD's, out Saturday), WR Josh Huff, Sr (342 yards, 2 TD's)

The Lowdown: Unless you are from Oregon or you are a glutton for self-punishment, Ducks week is one that most Buffs fans look at with either sheer horror or general apathy. Oregon is very, very good and they haven't been kind to the Buffaloes over the past few years (not to mention that other game). This years Chip Kelly-less version of the Ducks looks very similar to the last couple. Extremely fast team with playmakers all over the field that puts the pedal to the floor and doesn't let up until they are up 40-50 points.
