USA Today: Weekend Preview

Here is the link.


No. 6 California visits No. 12 Oregon in Saturday's most important matchup in the national title hunt, with the winner emerging as the top challenger to Southern California's Pac-10 supremacy. Both teams have shown vulnerabilities in the secondary, which could make for an entertaining series of big plays. Ducks QB Dennis Dixon will be without one of his best weapons, WR Brian Paysinger (knee). He'll count on WRs Cameron Colvin and Jaison Williams to take up the slack. Golden Bears QB Nate Longshore has been making opponents pay for double teaming WR DeSean Jackson, utilizing WRs Lavelle Hawkins and Robert Jordan. But with all the deep threats, the game probably will turn on which ground game does a better job controlling the ball. Again, both are well equipped with the Ducks' Jonathan Stewart and Cal's Justin Forsett topping the Pac-10 rushing chart.
