What better way to wash the taste of a tough, season opening loss to Auburn out of your mouth than by hanging 77 points on the board against Nevada? Now 15th-ranked Oregon looks to really get on a roll headed into the conference season by taking on another overmatched opponent at home.
The Ducks host FCS University of Montana Saturday night at Autzen Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:45 p.m. You will be able to see the game on the PAC 12 Network.
Montana is coming off an offensive explosion of its own. The perrennial Big Sky Conference front-runner trounced North Alabama Saturday, 61-17.
The game against the Grizzlies is the final non-conference tilt for Oregon this season. The Ducks head south for their PAC 12 opener against Stanford next week before a bye the final weekend of September.
Before kickoff this Saturday, KOIN 6 digital sports reporter Marcus Greaves analyzes the win over Nevada, previews the matchup with Montana and looks ahead to the looming conference season. For this week’s Ducking Around podcast, Marcus talks to Scott Reed from Ducks Sports Authority, Preston Hiefield who spent a lot of time covering the Ducks and Riley Corcoran, the TV and Radio Voice of the Montana Grizzlies.
