You can't get more Northwest. It's October, Husky Stadium and the Ducks and Dawgs have some scores to settle.
Oregon has an 11-game win streak going and for over the last decade this series hasn't been close. Oregon has beaten Washington by double figures in each of the 11 wins.
However, that was then and this is now. Oregon is 3-3 for the season and 1-2 in conference play. The are reeling from a 45-38 loss to Washington State in double-overtime in the second straight loss at Autzen Stadium. In the conference opener, Utah scored the most points against Oregon in a game at the 48-year old stadium. No. 2 Michigan State had revenge on Oregon by beating the Ducks 31-28 at East Lansing. Oregon beat Eastern Washington (61-42), Georgia State (61-28) and Colorado (41-24).
Washington is off a stunning 17-13 win over the then No. 17 USC Trojans at Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles last week and also has wins over Sacramento State (48-0), Utah State (31-17) but were edged out by Boise State (16-13) and California (30-24).
