After corralling Colorado 45-2, the No. 7 Ducks (6-1) host Washington State (3-4) this Saturday at noon.

The improved Cougs just allowed 551 yards in a 44-21 loss to Oregon State at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

After winning their first two games (Idaho State, UNLV), the Cougs have lost to San Diego State, UCLA, Stanford and the Beavers. WSU's last win came against Colorado, 31-27, on October 1st.

The Ducks enter Saturday with a 19-game home win streak.

Monday, Oregon head coach Chip Kelly talked about how "defense wins championships" as the Ducks haven't allowed a touchdown in its last five quarters. Only two in the past 10 quarters.

Plus, just how does David Paulson make this incredible catches? The tight end who grew up in Auburn, Washington, somewhat of a Cougar fan, attributes his reliable mitts to always having a ball with him as a kid.

Looking ahead, before the wrecking ball takes down Husky Stadium, the No. 7 Ducks will attempt to do some wrecking of their own on November 5th.

Kickoff for the game has now been set for 7:30 p.m.

After the UW game, Oregon travels to Stanford on the 12th then back to Autzen on back-to-back weeks with USC and Oregon State.

Only the Trojan game currently has a time, that will be 5:00 p.m.
