SD Roundtable: Nevada Predictions

September 6, 2019

Nobody and I mean nobody, is giving Nevada a chance tomorrow against Oregon. Even Vegas has Oregon as a 3 touchdown favorite and that’s saying something.

It would appear the staff at ScoopDuck shares a lot of those same sentiments. Nobody is expecting Nevada to be in this one on Saturday.

Below are our predictions for the game and it appears the Ducks will win big.


Jacob Archer

This Oregon team will rebound in a massive way from the season opener. I expect the offense to be aggressive early, and push the ball downfield in a big way. The defense will force a big turnover in the first half, and at some point during the 3rd quarter we'll see Tyler Shough check into the game. I expect they'll want to see what he's capable of, and the Ducks will be scoring points deep into the fourth quarter.

I think Oregon will bounce back against Nevada. The Wolf Pack's come-from-behind win over Purdue coupled with Oregon giving away the game to Auburn will fuel the fire and lead the Ducks to victory. To put it frankly, the Ducks just have too much talent. Nevada covers the spread (-23.5), but Oregon wins

When the Ducks establish an early lead they’ll keep pressing the gas. Arroyo will get the sense there is no more room to play nice with opponents and the Ducks must strike when the iron is hot. Look for Oregon to open up a distinct advantage against Nevada and keep pressing for points, a welcome sight for the Duck faithful.

Oregon’s defense dominates from the start and even scores a TD in this one.  The defense sets up the offense in great field position most of the game.   Arroyo opens the offense up and Herbert connects on two TDs of 30+ yards (although both JJ6 and Cam McCormick sit out this game).  The running game shows improvement with Verdell and Dye both having 70+ yards.  The Ducks regroup from the tough Auburn loss and notch their first win of the season.

Oregon starts slow with a mild hangover from the Auburn loss. By the second quarter, the Ducks will have begun to establish the run, gashing big gains. CJ Verdell, Travis Dye and Darrian Felix combine for 220 yards of rushing and 3 TDs in the Ducks win. Jévon Holland takes a punt to the house, Kayvon Thibodeaux records his first sack, and fellow true freshman Mykael Wright gets his first interception.

A big, big, big win for Oregon Saturday. I believe we will witness a team that has to take out some unfair punishment on Nevada to change the narrative. I expect some big offensive explosion plays, a stingy defense and a brutal ass-whoopin.
