Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. Needs Best Game This Season

Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. is the offensive leader. The Junior signal-caller had a mediocre game last week against Oregon State. Penix Jr. tossed 298 yards through the air and one touchdown. He helped Washington win 24-21 as the Beavers made him look silly at times. Now, Oregon will be an even tougher hill to climb. The likely winner of this game depends on one thing. Can Michael Penix Jr. play like he did earlier in the season against an Oregon team in Eugene?

Bluntly, Penix Jr. has an opportunity to claw back into the Heisman race if Washington can upset Oregon.

Now, Penix Jr. still leads the nation in passing yards but Washington again had more issues getting in the end zone against Oregon State. There were a few throws in that game where Penix just misfired wildly. He had 22 incompletions in all.

The key may be the Huskies’ 1-2 punch at wide receiver. Rome Odunze and Jalen McMillian combined for 11 catches and 161 yards but no touchdowns. That has to change on Saturday for Washington to have a chance.

Washington’s defense was alright last week but even then, the Huskies yielded 21 points. The good news is that the Huskies’ pass defense was excellent and their rush defense was timely. Oregon and Bo Nix could be a matchup nightmare this week though.

The problem last week was the Huskies’ normally stout run defense. It got gouged for 175 yards by the Beavers. For those that do not realize, Washington has not faced a team or a threat like Bo Nix.

Bo Nix And Oregon In Must-Win Mode Too

Head coach Dan Canning knows the game against Washington is a must-win for Washington too. The Ducks are aiming for higher aspirations like the college football playoff. If they win out, and win the Pac-12 Championship, a playoff spot is quite possible.

First things first, the Ducks still have plenty of business to take care of. If Oregon wins out, they would be 12-1 and in good position possibly for that aforementioned playoff spot. Bo Nix has a four-game gauntlet to get through along with the rest of the Ducks. That first game is at home against Washington.

This game boils down to the turnover battle. If Nix can keep his turnovers down (err the bad Nix), then Oregon can easily win this game and possibly more. The Ducks are going up against a defense that the senior quarterback should be able to exploit. After all, Washington is far from an SEC-caliber defense. Nix delivered 36 touchdowns from scrimmage (22 passing, 13 rushing, one receiving) so far this season and should be able to pad that total a good bit on Saturday.

Oregon’s preseason NCAAF win total of 8.5 will need a win to go over this week.

Washington vs Oregon Prediction

Most pundits have Oregon at the top of the heap in the Pac-12. Can Washington do something to upset that positioning?

Honestly, Washington’s defense will be attacked but Oregon has a few vulnerable spots too.

Washington getting 13.5 points does seem enticing, but Oregon showed they can cover against a UCLA team that had some road difficulties. Oregon’s offense is too much from Nix for the Huskies to prevail here. Finally, keep an eye on the 72.5 Over. If that moves down a bit, look there too.

Pick:  Oregon -13.5 (-110)
