Last year when Matt Barkley announced that he would forego the pro draft, and return for his senior season, many predicted that USC would win this year’s national championship. Things haven’t worked out as Matt Barkley planned. This game will be his team’s chance to redeem their season. For the Oregon Ducks this is the chance to show the nation (and the BCS computers) how good they really are.

Oregon Ducks @ USC Trojans
3. November 2012 00:00 MEZ, Los Angeles Coliseum Los Angeles, CA
Last weekend the Ducks destroyed the lowly Colorado Buffalos 70:14. Oregon scored 28 points in both the 1st and 2nd quarters to lead 56:0 at halftime. The best play of the game was a punt return for a TD by the Black Mamba (De’Anthony Thomas).
Two weeks ago the Arizona State Sun Devils attempted to black-out the Duck. Oregon spotted ASU 7 quick points, but then the Ducks rolled 43:21. With 11 minutes remaining in the 2nd quarter the Ducks led 43:7. (!!!!!!) Here are the highlights.
Now its on to USC. Will the Ducks continue to roll. Here’s a comparison of pre-season pump-up videos for the two teams. Here’s the USC version.
This is OREGON so once again there is a buzz as to what the Ducks will wear. The rumor is they will be wearing Storm Trooper white.
Most likely the rumor is true because the official Oregon sports website is encouraging fans to wear white and the Duck has put out this video.
