Defensively, the Ducks aren't playing up to their standard, Cristobal acknowledged. "There’s no sugar-coating that," he said. "But there’s also no finger-pointing either. We’ve got to coach it better." #GoDucks

Justin Wilcox’s defense against Joe Moorhead’s offense will be must-see television this weekend, especially when it comes to the Run/Pass Option element of Oregon. They can confuse defenses with their shifts and motions pre-snap and, most critical, how the backfield moves post-snap. I’d be glued to this element of the game.
California Golden Bears
Who to watch
Brett Johnson. One of the most physical defensive linemen in the Pac-12, he has made his presence felt each week. Watch him against the Oregon offensive line, as he must find his way into the backfield to disrupt their RPO and zone read scheme.

Just a reminder that they tallied 532 yards of total offense against Oregon, did not turn the ball over and averaged 6.1 yards per carry. While explosive plays skew that number, it is still noteworthy, as Jefferson followed his offensive line for a career-long 82-yard touchdown on the Beavers’ second offensive play.
Need to love up @FBCoachM of @BeaverFootball - watch this snap & how the OL steps properly & as defender come into this eyesight they pass off DL and climb to the LB. Also, shout out to the WRs blocking downfield! (@kefenseh)
