There will be a lot of things to pay attention to on Saturday for fans of the Oregon Ducks.
On the field, Dan Lanning and his team will look to continue their successful season and potentially lock up a spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game with a win — and some help from Washington and Utah — and pick up their first ever November win against Arizona State.

We get into all of that this week with our predictions and opinions in the Ducks Wire roundtable.
