Pre-game stories

Tyson Alger gives you five things to watch for during the game tonight.

3. Keep on rolling in the Royce

Remember a couple of weeks ago when Oregon's running game seemed like it ground to a halt? Yeah, Royce Freeman has done the best to make you forget. No Oregon Duck rushed for more than 100 yards in Oregon's first five games. In the last two, Freeman has put up 121 and 169-yard efforts, highlighted by his four touchdown performance against Washington. Freeman has 11 touchdowns on the ground, is averaging 5.6 yards per carry and has firmly grabbed the reigns of Oregon's No. 1 spot in the backfield. Against Cal's porous defense, another 100-yard game could be likely.
