Expect the Ducks to make a statement today. About 75% of those making predictions from around the country have picked the Cowboys to win.
With a national spotlight, Coach Mike Bellotti and offensive coordinator (and future head coach) Chip Kelly know what a great recruiting tool a big win would be.
As they have proven all season long, give the Ducks a little time off and watch the fireworks begin. In the opening game of the season and coming off bye weeks the Ducks just got better and better, with the Beavers being the last victim.
Oregon's defense will focus on QB Zac Taylor, WR Dez Bryant and RB Kendall Hunter. They will have a great view, looking down on them after laying them out cold. These Cowboys don't know what they are in for. The Duck defense has something to prove today and they will be on top of their game.
Oregon's triple threat, Jeremiah Johnson, LeGarrette Blount and Jeremiah Masoli will produce so much offense that OSU won't know what hit them. The Cowboys won't be able to keep up, especially later in the game when they just run out of juice.
Look for records to fall at the Holiday Bowl as Oregon wins big-time.
