Defensively, UCLA woke up in the California game wherein they held the Golden Bears to only 176 total yards and recorded five sacks.

Betting on the Oregon Ducks (-12.5)
Record: 2-0 Overall / 2-0 Conference
Oregon’s offense is humming this season. The Ducks are averaging 39.0 points through their first two games, including their 43-29 road win over the Cougars last Saturday. Quarterback Tyler Shough passed for 312 yards and four touchdowns with an interception on 21-of-30 completions while running back CJ Verdell rushed 18 times for 118 yards and a touchdown. Travis Dye added 87 rushing yards and two more touchdowns on just two carries. UCLA’s defense is about to be heavily tested by the Ducks’ attack that is also averaging 459.0 total yards per contest. With plenty of options on the ground and on the air, the Ducks often find ways to get over the hump, as evidenced by their 11th-ranked third-down offense that is converting 51.85 percent of the time.
Oregon is 3-2 against the spread in its last five games as the home team.
Oregon wins, 37-30.
