The matchup to watch this weekend will be when the No. 2 Oregon Ducks host the No. 11 UCLA Bruins on Saturday night in primetime on ESPN, and with neither team having more than one loss, will be in full pursuit of the BCS championship.

The Bruins need to rebound in the worst way after a terrible showing last week vs the Stanford Cardinal, while the Ducks are hoping to remain undefeated, as a perfect regular season weird all but guarantees they’ll be in the National Title game.

“They’re a pretty good team and they have a lot of athletes on that team,” said Oregon running back De’Anthony Thomas, who is expected to return after missing three games with a right ankle injury. “They’re going to give us their best shot and it should be a good game.”

These two teams could meet again in a Pac-12 championship game, but for now, both teams are just worried about getting the win this Saturday.
