Oregon Ducks will beat Ohio State Buckeyes, Sports Illustrated predicts, as … – OregonLive.com
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.
