This game should be really fun to watch. It wouldn’t surprise me if either team won. I think the Oregon corners on the Auburn receivers is the key matchup. If Oregon can get Newton off-kilter in the passing game, it should win. Oregon just has too many weapons for Auburn to attend to, while Oregon mainly has to attend to Newton–no small feat! Oregon edges Auburn in a classic offensive battle.

• The R-G is looking for some volunteers to test iPad apps. Rob Moseley shares the link where you can register.
• The Oregonian and Mobile Press-Register are starting a fourteen part series where they compare Oregon and Auburn. Part one deals with tradition.
• John Canzano has a nice story on Chip Kelly. One thing about Canzano, I either detest his stories or really like them. This one is a keeper and a good read.
• Enjoy your family and friends and have a Very Merry Christmas everyone.
