Redshirt freshman Keith Price will be making his first career start at Oregon on Saturday. If you’re into religion, say a little something for him.
It’s in this space each week that we roundup the picks of Washington’s pending game. A little change this week. We’ll forego the individual links in favor of summation: Everyone is picking Oregon.
That includes the three of us here at Sports Press Northwest. According to USA Today, Washington is only a 28.5-point underdog.
Art Thiel (5-3 overall, 4-4 against the spread)
There’s no need to go over 60 in the game or on I-5 to get there, but UO under the Chipster has never been a paragon of restraint. If Lou Gehrig hadn’t beat him to the quote, the sidelined Jake Locker could consider himself the luckiest man on the face of the earth. Oregon 65, Washington 10
Seth Kolloen (3-5, 2-6)
Tavita Pritchard–I mean Keith Price–throws a 10-yard touchdown pass to D’Andre Goodwin on fourth-and-goal with 49 seconds remaining, giving the 24-point underdog Huskies a victory over No. 1 Oregon. Washington 24, Oregon 23
Todd Dybas (3-5, 3-5)
Lloyd Christmas liked his chances better than the Huskies should. Oregon 52, Washington 17.
