TV Schedule: Saturday, Sept. 26, 8:30 p.m. ET, FOX

Stadium: Autzen Stadium

The Oregon Ducks can get back into the College Football Playoff conversation very easily. All they have to do is knock off the Utah Utes this weekend.

Utah is also ranked in the top 25. Plus, it rocks a perfect record. Oregon, on the other hand, lost a huge game against the Michigan State Spartans in Week 2. For all of those fans who are writing off the Ducks, just remember this: Oregon only lost to Michigan State, a team that returned an experienced QB and entered 2015 with a ton of hype, by three points. Three.

Although pushing the panic button is what fans and the media are all about these days, give Oregon some time to gel. They did lose the great Marcus Mariota to the NFL, after all.

The Utes will have to stop the always lethal Oregon offense. Vernon Adams Jr. should be good to go this week (suffered a broken finger) and Royce Freeman is a solid back who can put a team on his back.

The biggest question entering this game: Does Utah have enough firepower to keep up with the Ducks?

Answer: No.

That’s okay, though, because most teams don’t. I’m sure running machine Devontae Booker would have something to say about that.

To put the cherry on top: Oregon gets this game at home.

Regardless, it’s going to be a big weekend for Pac-12 football.

PREDICTION: Utes 21, Ducks 42
