KEY STATS AND ANALYSIS

So far, the Ducks are averaging 40.6 points per game on offense, which is good for 16th most
in college football.

Despite their strong overall statistics, the Ducks need to be better on 3rd downs, as they
converting at a below-average rate this year.

So far, the Ducks have turned to the passing attack at a below-average rate, but they have an
opportunity to find success through the air vs an Arizona defense allowing teams to complete
passes at a rate of 71.7%.

On the ground, the Oregon offense is averaging 228.8 yards per game, good for 10th in the
country. This has come while ranking 50th in attempts at 38.4 per game. This week, the Ducks will
be facing an Arizona defense ranked 155th in rush yards allowed per game. This year, they have
averaged 275 yards per game when facing defenses ranked outside the top 50.

Heading into the game, the Ducks will need a better performance out of their defense, as they
are currently 98th at 30.2 points per game allowed.

Heading into this week’s matchup, the Wildcats will look to improve their offensive output, as
they are ranked just 63rd in the NCAA in points scored.

This season, Arizona’s offense has had its problems sustaining drives, as they are below
average unit on 3rd downs. But, this could be the game that they turn things around as Oregon is
allowing an average of 30.2 points per game and has had its problems getting off the field on
third down.

So far, the Arizona offense is averaging just 136.0 yards per game on the ground. This
production has come on an average of 31.4 rush attempts per game (112th). However, look for
things to be tough sledding, as Oregon has been one of the tougher teams to run against this
year.
