Good Luck Ducks, Week 3: Grizzly Warning

The Ducks host Montana for their final nonconference tune-up. 

After a thorough beat down of Nevada last week which hearkened back to the Chip Kelly days in terms of blowout wins. It was easy to see that there would be some sort of response coming to the very difficult Auburn loss, and it was certainly encouraging to see that there was no let up after Justin Herbert got to head to the bench early while his backup took over.

Next up is a very late game against the Montana Grizzlies, an FCS team from the Big Sky Conference. My guess is that Herbert will have an early end to his night again and that the team will keep things relatively simple so as not to give their future opponents much in terms of video to look at when they start their conference schedule. At least, that's what the hope is here. College football can be weird and wild. I'm guessing the Ducks don't want things to get weird here.

Every season, there's a handful of FCS teams that manage to beat their FBS opponents (formerly Division 1-A and 1-AA respectively) and Oregon State shows up on this list six times. It's never happened to Oregon, and I don't see it happening tonight.

  • Luke Skyywalker's Crystal Balls say: Rapper French Montana once sampled Luke's solo single "I Wanna Rock" from whence this glorious screencap was taken. You can't stand the bass, take your crabby ass home
Game time is 7:45 PDT on the Pac-12 Network. Roxy Bernstein, Anthony Herron and Jill Savage are on the call once again. Go Ducks!
