    #13 Utah leads the PAC12 South while #3 Oregon sits with Standford atop the North Division

    Defense seems to be the key to this game. Utah has only allowed 7.3 points per game on this young season, while Oregon is only allowing 6.1 points per game. With Utah averaging 39 points per game and Oregon averaging 27, something has to give!

    Who have they played?

    UTAH:
    W - Northern Illinois (42-3)
    W - Akron (56-0)
    W - Arizona State (20-19)

    OREGON:
    W - #8 Georgia (6-3)
    W - Colorado (42-0)...21-0;)
    W - #15 TCU (34-16)

    Utah Report
    Tyler Shreeve leads the Utah passing game with 839 yards passing with 9 TD's and only 2 Int's. The Utah running game has totaled 511 yards on the ground and Harvey Langi leads the way with 51 carries for 321 yards and 3 TD's. Through the air the Utes want to get the ball to 1 of 4 guys, Kenneth Scott (15 catches), Westlee Tonga (12 catches), Dres Anderson (10 catches), and Terrell Reese (9 catches). Scott leads the Utah corp of WR's with 405 yards and 6 TD's.

    Defensively
    Utah has sacked the QB 8 times, forced 2 fumbles (recovering 1), picked off 7 passes, and have 26 tackles for loss.

    Oregon Report
    The Ducks like to run the ball but if made to throw, they can move the ball if needed.

    Oregon uses a slew of backs among others to carry the ball. 9 different players have carried the ball for the Ducks with Ben Robinson leading the way with 43 carries and 189 yards. The combined effort of the Ducks has ran for 575 yards in 3 ball games for an average of 191.6 yards per game.
    Byran Bennett is nothing more than efficient! Bennett has only thrown the ball 30 times but connected on 20 attempts for 321 yards, 4 TD's, and only 1 INT. 7 different WR's have touched the ball and with the style of offense the Ducks run, it could be anyone at anytime.

    Defensively
    The Ducks have sacked the QB 10 times, forced 2 fumbles (recovering 1), picked off 5 passes (swatted down way too many), and have 17 tackles for loss.

    Defense and taking care of the football will be the story of the game, who does that best will take a big step toward the PAC12 over all lead.
