What’s at stake: Oregon non-conference home winning streak (28), home winning streak (19), and home opener winning streak (17). Beyond the historic marker that this is Dan Lanning’s first career win, there should be little to mark the occasion of this game. The less memorable the day, the better for Oregon. If the game is competitive in the second half or if the issues that plagued the Ducks last week continue, this is not the result UO needs.

Oregon Attack vs. Eastern Washington Defense

The Ducks have a lot to settle after last week’s performance. Bo Nix’s decision making will be a constant subject of scrutiny until he proves himself capable of avoiding critical interceptions and forced throws. He also only threw a few deep balls against Georgia and one was intercepted and the other unnecessarily drove Chase Cota inside with the outside wide open. Nix needs to hit deep throws and connect with his point guards more often. Running back rotation and carry distribution need to change from last week’s results, which are unsustainable.

Oregon Defense vs. Eastern Washington Defense

The Ducks need to prove they have disruptive players who can rush the passer and create negative plays. Doing it against Eastern Washington won’t prove much, but not doing it will be alarming. Oregon has to leave the field on third down, which won’t prove anything against an FCS opponent either, but if the Eagles move the sticks, it will be a very bad sign. Finally, the secondary must find answers in terms of personnel and technique.

Game to watch: Oregon cornerbacks vs. Eastern Washington’s Freddie Roberson, Efton Chism III

Oregon’s secondary was cut out by Georgia and needs to be much stronger. EWU is going to throw the ball by design and by force as well, if all goes according to UO’s plan. Roberson and Chism are capable of outside threats and highly regarded at their level. Ducks corners need to prove something and having two performers from every conference is at least a start in the right direction.

They said it: “There’s probably not a lot of smiles, because I’ve been there before next week. They’re going to be motivated by different things that you can’t necessarily see in the movies. —Aaron Best , EWU coach

Key stat:

EWU is 67-1 since 2010 when it won the turnover battle, 22-9 when tied and 24-30 when it lost the turnover margin. business
