Oregon’s football team will be playing against Nevada on September 10, 2011 at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon. After a disappointing loss to LSU just a week before, do you think Oregon has what it takes to make the win? We sure think so. Here are a few reasons why:
The Wolfpack are replacing more than 60 percent of their offense from last year’s team that upset Boise State.
Quarterback Colin Kapernick, arguably the greatest player in Nevada’s history, is gone, as are the top three receivers, including tight end Virgil Green, and the leading rusher Vai Taua.
Seems like a no-brainer to me.
The Ducks will need to get Harris back soon if they want to defeat teams like Stanford and USC later this season. Fortunately he won’t be needed as much against Nevada as the team is run-heavy, as said before.
Let’s get Harris back on the field for more practice so the Ducks can stand a chance against the “tougher” teams to beat.
Finally, Nathan Lowery from the Bleacher report has this to say about the upcoming Ducks game against Nevada:
I think we will see Oregon easily win this game over the Wolfpack. It returns more members of its offense and defense and is back home at Autzen Stadium, where it haven’t loss since Sept. 20, 2008, to Boise State.
I think coming back to Autzen Stadium with a loss under their belts will motivate the Ducks enough to play harder, smarter and return back to the football players we loved watching last season. Go Ducks!
