The Ducks are 15th in the country in passing with 309.7 yards per game and six in scoring with 43.6 points per game.

Running back Royce Freeman has averaged 5.6 yards per carry this season and has 636 yards with 11 touchdowns.
Over the weekend, California lost its second game in a row when they were defeated 36-34 by UCLA. Cal did force three turnovers in that game, but they also gave up 567 yards to UCLA's defense.
Through their first seven games, the Golden Bears are third in the country in passing with 373.1 yards per game.
