The fact that Oregon has yet to win back-to-back games this season is somewhat mind-blowing. For a team that had not lost more than three games since 2007 and that has rattled off seven consecutive ten-win seasons, this season has been a disappointment.

However, the Ducks have a chance to right the ship on Thursday against Arizona State in Tempe. Coming off of a 26-20 victory over Washington in Seattle and with a healthy QB in Vernon Adams Jr., the Ducks are poised to make a late-season surge. 

The Ducks have won their past eight meeting against Arizona State and 12 of the last 15 meetings. Additionally, Oregon's offense has averaged 46.7 points in the last seven games against the Sun Devils.

“The second half of the season we're going to be a lot different,” said wide receiver Devon Allen, per The Oregonian. “I think we're suddenly starting to feel more confident and that's just something we're going to have to capitalize on.”
