It’s a Friday night border showdown! The Oregon Ducks take on the California Golden Bears on Oct. 21, which is a crucial game for the future of both teams. Don’t miss any of the college football action with a live stream right here!
This season hasn’t been a stellar one for either team, as California only has one conference win and Oregon hasn’t managed to get one in-conference victory yet. Since they’re both in the Pac-12 (and in the same division), whoever takes the win on Oct. 21 gets to add a W to their conference record. But the victory isn’t just important for this season, as it will affect the recruiting for next season as well! The big game kicks off at 10:30 PM ET, so don’t miss it!

With fairly similar records (California is 3-3 and Oregon is 2-4), this game will surely be a fight to the finish. Both teams are coming off bye weeks, but before that they each suffered tough — but very different — losses. California managed to tie up their Oct. 8 game against the Oregon State Beavers, but ultimately lost in over time, while Oregon suffered a rather embarrassing 70-21 loss to the Top-10 Washington team. They’ll likely both be playing with a vengeance!
California’s quarterback Davis Webb faced a hand injury in the game against Oregon State, which puts his health in question for the bout against the Ducks. Nevertheless, he’s expected to start this game, and if he plays like the superstar passer he has proved to be, Oregon may have a tough time stopping him. But the same could be said for California’s running game, as Royce Freeman and the offensive team are the 14th best rushing attack in the country. Clearly this won’t be an easy win for either team!
Perhaps the most interesting part of this Pac-12 game is the record of their previous meetups. The Ducks have pulled out a win over the Golden Bears in their last seven meetings! But with California currently holding a better record than Oregon, this could be the game that breaks that streak. We’ll definitely be tuning in to find out what happens!
