techsm5

The 2022 football season is officially behind us for the Oregon Ducks, and while there’s been a long fan off-season and more football at Autzen Stadium, that doesn’t mean we can’t start looking ahead. the front.

To start, we wanted to take a look at the Ducks schedule in 2023 and highlight some of the biggest games and the most important places for Oregon to start focusing. Of course, the final order and dates for Pac-12 games are yet to be announced, so beyond the non-conference schedule, all we have are the opponents the Ducks will face next season.

Buy tickets for Ducks

That’s still more than enough for us, allowing us to quickly see who Oregon will face in 2023, provide a narrative, and set the stage for the clashes to come as we begin a slow build up. to next season.

The prospect of starting your season with a game against Portland State rather than Georgia is certainly nice, all due respect to the Vikings. After losing the season opener by a score of 49-3 a year ago, it will be good for Oregon fans to kick off the 2023 season with a home game they will likely enter as as favorites by 25 to 30 points.

This is the showpiece non-conference game on the Ducks’ schedule, and it’s a matchup against former Oregon QB Tyler Shough, who has announced he will return for the 2023 season. The Ducks are expected to be favored in this match, but the electric atmosphere is guaranteed in Lubbock.

It’s going to be an entertaining non-conference game for the Ducks, but I don’t think it’s going to be a game the fans should be spending time stressing over. Hawaii went 3-10 in 2022 and hasn’t seen a massive overhaul this offseason.

Date TBD, at Arizona State Sun Devils

Oregon leads the overall series 20-18.

We don’t yet know when this game will land on the season schedule for Oregon, but it’s sure to be among the most anticipated games of the year, despite the fact that it probably won’t be among the most competitive. in the field. With Kenny Dillingham now the HC at Arizona State, it will be a fun reunion to watch when the Ducks travel to Tempe.

Date TBD, vs. California Golden Bears

In the current Pac-12 landscape, there aren’t many games on the schedule that are considered cupcakes or easy wins. However, the Golden Bears don’t seem to pose a major threat in 2023. They struggled last year and also lost their quarterback in the transfer portal. We’ll see how Justin Wilcox fares in the rest of the offseason, but Cal could take Colorado’s place as the conference’s last team next season.

Date TBD, vs. Colorado Buffaloes

Talk about the most intriguing matchups on the schedule, all eyes will be on Eugene as Coach Prime and the Buffs head north. With all the players and transfer portal rookies Colorado has been able to add, the Buffs could see a pretty meteoric rise this season. No matter what happens, it’s sure to be entertaining. It could very well be a good game.

Date TBD, vs. Oregon State Beavers

When the full schedule with dates is finally released, there are probably 4-5 matches that will be circled immediately. It is perhaps the one circled with the most indelible ink. After Oregon’s loss to the Beavers in 2022, as well as OSU’s addition of DJ Uiagalelei through the transfer portal, this is shaping up to be the Ducks’ game of the year.

Date TBD, vs. USC Trojans

After not facing each other in 2022, this stands as one of the showpiece games of the season for both teams, and potentially in the world of college football as a whole. It might even be a glimpse of the Pac-12 Championship when all is said and done. Bo Nix versus Caleb Williams, Dan Lanning versus Lincoln Riley. This one is going to be awesome.

Date TBD, vs. Washington State Cougars

Oregon leads the overall series 53-42-7.

Defining the stadium way too early

The Cougars are going to be a sneaky team again in the Pac-12, capable of knocking down a lot of the top dogs with a solid defense and a potentially excellent offense under 2nd year or Cameron Ward. It’s never a game that Oregon can ignore.

Date to be determined, at Stanford Cardinal

I think Stanford is going to battle California for the crown of worst team in the Pac-12. They were bad last year and then head coach David Shaw pulled out of the program. It’s unclear how quickly they can turn things around, but I don’t have high hopes.

Date TBD, at Utah Utes

Whether or not QB Cam Rising returns for the 2023 season has a major impact on the appeal of this game. If Rising returns, then the Utes are in line to be among the best teams in the Pac-12. If Rising leaves, it’s unclear how quickly they can get back to the top tier of the conference and compete for a Pac-12 championship.

Date TBD, at Washington Huskies

Location

Husky Stadium | Seattle, Washington.

Recording of the series

Oregon trails the overall series 61-48-5.

Defining the stadium way too early

Along with Oregon State and USC, this is arguably one of the most interesting games on the calendar. Depending on when that happens in the season, both schools could very well be ranked in the top 10 in the nation, and that will likely determine who makes it to the Pac-12 championship. This rivalry between Oregon and Washington has never looked better.
