Unless Brock Osweiler can come out and run a balanced offensive attack, we may be in for a long evening in Eugene. Seeing true freshman Matt Barkley struggle against the Cardinal was not an encouraging sight for our young signal caller, who is making his first career start in lieu of Danny Sullivan, who is out with a biceps injury.
The game begins in three hours, and until then we have California/Arizona to watch and enjoy. Hopefully the Golden Bears can beat the Kitties. I couldn't bear to see Arizona in the Rose Bowl.
