Through 1 Quarter
The Oregon Ducks are ahead after one, as expected, but they'll have to keep working the rest of the way. They have jumped out to a quick 14-7 lead against the UCLA Bruins. The Ducks' advantage has come about despite their 59-yard disadvantage.
Nobody has stood out from the pack for Oregon offensively yet, with QB Tyler Shough being one of several leaders. He has passed for two TDs and 79 yards on six attempts. Devon Williams' performance is making up for a slower contest against the Washington State Cougars last week.
Oregon and UCLA came into this matchup with previous-game wins. It's looking like Oregon will be able to keep the momentum, but UCLA still has three quarters to right the ship.

What to Know
A Pac-12 battle is on tap between the Oregon Ducks and the UCLA Bruins at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Autzen Stadium. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
Oregon had a touchdown and change to spare in a 43-29 win over the Washington State Cougars last week. The Ducks' QB Tyler Shough was on fire, passing for four TDs and 312 yards on 30 attempts in addition to picking up 81 yards on the ground. Shough's 71-yard touchdown toss to RB Travis Dye in the fourth quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the night.
Meanwhile, UCLA turned the game against the California Golden Bears into a track meet and took the gold after outgaining them 440 yards to 176. The Bruins were the clear victors by a 34-10 margin over California. UCLA QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson did work as he passed for three TDs and 196 yards on 26 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 52 yards.
Oregon is the favorite in this one, with an expected 17-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.
Oregon took their game against UCLA when the teams previously met two seasons ago by a conclusive 42-21 score. Will the Ducks repeat their success, or do the Bruins have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
