No. 2 Oregon (1-0) at Virginia (1-0), 3:30 p.m. (ABC)
Line: Oregon by 22.
Series record: First meeting.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
Oregon has won 15 consecutive games on its opponents' field, the longest streak in the nation, and will arrive at Scott Stadium with its highest ranking this early in the season. Virginia has won twice in 20 previous games against teams ranked in the top five, and both of those victories came at home.
Oregon's running game against Virginia's defense. The Ducks gained 500 of their school-record 772 yards on the ground last week against Nicholls State with three players going over 100 yards, and Virginia allowed 187 yards on the ground against BYU. The Cavaliers play an aggressive defense designed to get penetration, which could leave them susceptible to misdirection against the Ducks' exceptional speed.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Oregon: QB Marcus Mariota. He was 12 for 21 for 234 yards last week, and added 113 yards rushing on five carries. The Cavaliers know their pressure will be more effective if the Ducks face second- and third-and-long situations, allowing them to get after the sophomore and perhaps cause turnovers.
Virginia: DE Eli Harold. The sophomore caught Ducks coach Mark Helfrich's eye with two sacks against BYU, and is probably the fastest player on Virginia's front seven.
