Why will Washington cover the spread?

  • Washington has the ability to slow down Oregon’s high-flying offense. Its defense ranks 13th in the country in yards allowed per game (304.5) and is third overall in scoring defense (13.7 ppg).
  • Oregon’s passing offense has been extremely efficient, leading the Pac-12 and sitting 12th in the country with 15.63 yards per completion. Meanwhile, Washington ranks first in the country in yards per completion allowed (8.8).
  • Jake Browning should exploit an Oregon secondary allowing 13.4 yards per completion, ranking 98th out of 130 FBS teams.
  • Washington averages 13.71 yards per completion, good for 28th in the country.
  • Oregon’s 216 yards rushing per game leads the Pac-12. Washington has allowed just 129.8 yards rushing per game and is 42nd in the country with 3.86 yards allowed per rush.
  • Washington senior linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven should have a big role in stopping Oregon’s rushing attack. He’s third in the nation with 74 tackles and had 10 tackles with one forced fumble in last year’s matchup.
