Oregon looks ready for BCS title shot
No. 4 Oregon plays host to No. 9 Stanford Saturday (8 ET, ABC/ESPN2), in a game that may decide the Pac-10 Championship, as well as which team goes to the BCS Championship Game.
If the Oregon Ducks keep up their current scoring pace and emerge victorious, expect them to play for the national championship in January.
Oregon is scoring at will on their opponents so far this season, and the Stanford Cardinal has the daunting task of trying to slow down the quack attack this week. At the rate the Ducks are going they will shatter the FBS record for most points in a single season, set by the Oklahoma Sooners just two years ago.
Oklahoma scored 716 points and played for the BCS Championship that season, scoring no fewer than 35 points in any game until their title game loss. They had nine 50-point games and five 60-point outbursts, all in the five games to close the regular season.
