Cal To Face Top Ranked Oregon Ducks, First #1 Opponent Since 2005

For the second straight week, the Oregon Ducks finished at the top of the BCS standings. The Ducks come to Berkeley in their final road trip of the season to face the California Golden Bears before the Civil War. Oregon has been unbeatable at home, averaging 61.2 points per game. However, they have "struggled" a little bit more away from Eugene, trailing the Tennessee Volunteers at halftime, dogfighting with the Arizona St. Sun Devils and USC Trojans before pulling away late, and then battling mightily with the Washington St. Cougars in the ugliest 20 point win you'll ever see. Oregon has still won each of those games by double digits, and they haven't scored any less than 42 points in any of their games, but it should give Cal fans some hope.

We've faced a top-ranked team twice in the past decade. Cal hosted #1 USC in 2005 and lost 35-10 in Strawberry Canyon. They also lost to #1 USC in the Coliseum in 2004. The Golden Bears have yet to beat a top-ranked team in their history.

Original lines were set as Oregon being 20 point favorites. Give us your first thoughts on the Cal-Oregon game!
