Oregon football has been a staple in the top 25 for a while now, but somewhat surprisingly is the fact that the Ducks have started a season with five straight wins only once in the last nine campaigns. That came during the team's 12-0 run to the BCS national championship game in 2010. Oregon looks to reach that benchmark again tonight, facing Washington State in a city that has been very good to them for nearly a decade, but also in a venue that saw the Ducks fall to Wake Forest in the 2002 Seattle Bowl in CenturyLink Field. Will the elements pose a factor as well? For that, here's AMS Vice President Bobby Corser with his Duck Cast:
"The Oregon Ducks have enjoyed the last month of playing at home, with the crowd at Autzen cheering them on. The nice home stretch of the schedule is now over and its time to head out and play on the road. Oregon is lucky in that they will have a somewhat neutral site for the game tomorrow, heading up I-5 to Seattle to take on Washington State. CenturyLink Field was been in the news twice this week, once for a miracle catch, and the other for an upset. The weather of from Autzen will follow the team up north. Partly cloudy skies will be the call as the team arrives. Temperatures will be in the mid 60s with a light wind, heading into the 50s during the game. There is a slight chance of a shower, but that shouldn't deter the team from trying to win its second conference game of the year. If you're going to game, most of the crowd will be under cover and it will be chilly. Make sure to wear green and cheer on the Ducks."
