Home-and-home: Ducks, Huskies on collision course for battle of unbeatens
What did nonconference play tell us about Washington and Oregon?
Home-and-Home is a monthly conversation between Christian Caple of On Montlake and Tyson Alger of The I-5 Corridor. With more than two decades of combined experience covering football in the Northwest, join On Montlake and The I-5 Corridor each month for their unique views on the Ducks, Huskies and Pac-12 football.
CAPLE: So far, so good: Washington and Oregon remain on course for a battle of unbeatens on Oct. 14 at Husky Stadium. But the Ducks’ conference opener against Colorado on Saturday feels like a far greater challenge than it might have a few weeks ago. How would you describe the way Oregon fans are approaching this one? They have to be at least a little concerned about Shedeur Sanders, yeah?
ALGER: It’s been a wave of emotions, Caple. Remember back in July when we all got to take our swings at Colorado being the one trying to break up the Pac-12?
Even Dan Lanning threw out his, “What have they ever won in this conference?” line.
