EUGENE, Ore. – The Bear Raid is coming to Autzen.
New California coach Sonny Dykes and his re-tooled Golden Bears visit No. 2 Oregon with both teams coming off byes, giving them plenty of time to ponder what they might see Saturday night in the conference opener for both teams.
For Oregon, it will be Dykes' pass-happy offense led by freshman quarterback Jared Goff, who is making his first start on the road. He leads the nation with an average of 435.3 yards passing.
But he'll be up against an Oregon defense that has allowed opponents an average of just 9 points per game, tying them for fifth nationally. The Ducks have allowed an average of 189.3 yards passing per game, but only one touchdown reception.
