In part III the Duck defense is discussed

In Part III in the series on looking at Oregon's 2-deep roster for the first game of the season against Cal-Davis, Steve and Richard discuss the Duck defense.

Oregon truely has a no-name defense this year and perhaps the biggest name is Coach Brady Hoke, who took over the job of defensive coordinator last winter.

Hoke changed the Duck defensive scheme to a 4-3 defense and promises aggressive play that looks to disrupt the opponents backfield and put pressure on the passer.

The Oregon secondary should be greatly improved this season after experiencing some growing pains last season, but this year the big question mark for the defense is the linebacker corps.

The first game of the season is against Cal-Davis on Sept. 3, at Autzen Stadium with kickoff scheduled for 2 p.m. 

The game will be broadcast live on the Pac-12 Networks.
