About the Ducks:

Oregon are the conference leader behind slick fielding (As a team, Oregon leads the country in fielding percentage at .988) and generally pretty good pitching. They are in the middle of a stretch of 8 road games, where they only won one of three from ASU down in Tempe last weekend (Oregon did beat OSU on Tuesday in their latest game).

Bears actually hold a 20-19 all time record over the Ducks in all baseball contests in history.
