No. 11 Ducks snap four-game losing streak to Cougs in late-night thriller

Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert led a late-game scoring drive that set up true freshman kicker Camden Lewis for a 26-yard field goal as time expired to give the No. 11 Ducks a 37-35 victory over Washington State on Saturday night in Eugene. Running back CJ Verdell had a career-night as he rushed for 257 yards, three touchdowns and 56 receiving yards. Verdell's 257 rushing yards are the most by a Pac-12 player this season. Herbert ended the evening with 222 passing yards on 21-of-33 pass attempts. WSU quarterback Anthony Gordon threw for 406 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Oregon remains first in the Pac-12 North standings at 7-1, while the Cougars fall to last-place in the north at 1-4 in league play this season. – Pac-12 Networks

The pick: Why No. 11 Oregon will beat Washington State

Oregon’s four-game skid against WSU will end in the heart of the Willamette Valley, but the Ducks won’t cruise as the oddsmakers suggest. The Cougars have enough offensive firepower to make Mario Cristobal and his staff sweat, but this team hasn’t shown the closing touch that allowed last year’s team to win the close ones.
