The Oregon Ducks will beat the Ohio State Buckeyes in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday.

At least, that’s the prediction from Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples, whose expectation of a 45-41 Ducks victory appears on the regional cover of this week’s edition of the sports magazine, along with Oregon running back Byron Marshall.

The magazine’s cover caption reads: “With Ohio State’s D focused on stopping Oregon’s scary ground game, Ducks wideouts like Byron Marshall could run wild in the Buckeyes’ secondary.”

The No. 2 Ducks and No. 4 Buckeyes, both 13-1 on the season, will kick off at 5:30 p.m. Monday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Does this put the Ducks in danger of falling victim to an SI cover jinx, or is all that just a bunch of hooey? Let us know in the comments section below.
