The Huskies are favored to beat the Ducks. That's a change of pace. Washington has made a habit of getting drubbed against Oregon, but that habit could end this year. The Ducks have won 12 in a row against the now-fifth-ranked Huskies, with UW's last win coming in 2003. It's really been an awfully long time.
Washington's rise this season, coupled with Oregon being 2-3 and looking more in disarray than at any time in recent years, leaves the Huskies as commanding favorites on the road this week.
