Both Oregon and Oregon State have slumped in recent weeks. The Beavers have lost four straight after a six-game winning streak, and may be shut out of one of the Pac-12's seven bowl games. The Ducks were ranked No. 2 and vying for a spot in the national championship game when they lost to Stanford on Nov. 7. After a rebound victory at home over Utah, the Ducks were stunned by a 42-16 loss at Arizona last weekend, which dropped them out of a shot at the Pac-12 championship and a Rose Bowl berth.


Oregon's run against Oregon's State porous rush defense. Despite the downturn, the Ducks are still ranked in the top 10 nationally with an average of nearly 278 yards per game. The Ducks are ranked No. 3 in total offense with 573.5 yards a game. The Beavers allowed Washington 530 yards on the ground and seven rushing touchdowns in a 69-27 loss last weekend.


Oregon State: QB Sean Mannion, who had a rough outing against Washington with three interceptions and three sacks. Mannion still holds the school's single-season record of 34 touchdowns and ranks second nationally with an average of 371.7 yards a game.

Oregon: QB Marcus Mariota, who will play after a hard hit to the head while trying to make a tackle against Arizona. While he doesn't have a concussion, there's no update on the health of his left knee. The sophomore known for his mobility has been limited for the past four games because of a brace he's been wearing.
