The #12 Oregon Ducks (4-1) will try to get back on track on Saturday afternoon when they take on the #18 UCLA Bruins (4-1). The Ducks routed the Bruins 42-14 at home in 2013.
Oregon moved down the rankings last week when they were beaten by the Arizona Wildcats 31-24 for their first loss of the season. They did have 446 offensive yards in that loss, but they were just 4-for-14 on their third down chances.
The Ducks have been able to pass for 324.4 yards per game this year and are scoring 43.6 points per game. Heisman hopeful Marcus Mariota has thrown for 1,411 yards with 15 touchdowns and no picks this season, and he has also rushed for 215 yards with three more scores. Mariota's top receiver has been Devon Allen, who has 19 catches this year for 377 yards and six touchdowns.
Last Saturday against Utah, UCLA lost their first game of the year by the score of 30-28. The Bruins gave up 242 rushing yards in that game and weren't able to force any turnovers.
Scoring hasn't been an issue for the Bruins this season, as they have averaged 36 points per game through five games. Junior quarterback Brett Hundley has 1,310 passing yards this year with nine touchdowns and just two interceptions, and he has also rushed for two touchdowns. Running back Paul Perkins is averaging 5.7 yards per carry this season and has 540 yards with three touchdowns.
