Having shown glimpses of his elusiveness and explosiveness as a freshman in 2012, Oregon Ducks wide receiver Bralon Addison has emerged as a bona fide star in 2013. His 345 receiving yards are second on the team, and he’s averaging a ridiculous 30.86 yards per punt return (scoring twice against Cal).

This week against the No. 16 Washington Huskies will provide a huge test for Addison and the Oregon offense, though. Washington’s Marcus Peters and Gregory Ducre are both excellent cornerbacks, and Addison expects them to hassle the Ducks all game Saturday:

They’re a really aggressive secondary, really well-coached. They run really well sometimes but their over-aggression kind of bites them in the butt sometimes.

 

They’re going to rough you up the whole game. It’s kind of a toughness thing this week. You’ve got to be mentally tough because it’ll be a long game. They’re going to rough you up, they’re going to hold you, they’re going to beat you up during plays so I think you just have to be mentally tough this week (Oregon Live).

For those unfamiliar, the rivalry between the Huskies and the Ducks is one of the most vitriol-filled in the Pac-12. Washington has dominated the series for most of its history, but a win by Oregon on Saturday would mean an unprecedented ten consecutive victories for the Ducks.
