2016 Oregon Season Preview
The Oregon Ducks advanced to their 2nd National Championship game in school history in 2014, behind the arm of Heisman trophy winning quarterback Marcus Mariota. The Ducks came up just short, and lost Mariota to the NFL. Despite the disappointment, the 2015 Oregon Ducks team will once again be one of the most dangerous offensive units in the country and should be in the race for the 2015 College Football Playoff. The wildcard for the Ducks chances in 2015 will be senior quarterback Vernon Adams. Adams transferred from neighboring Eastern Washington, where he has proven to be one of the most dynamic players in the country. He will have help in the backfield from running back Royce Freeman, who, while being one of the nation’s top running backs, will have to shoulder more of the load in 2015 with the season ending injury to Thomas Tyner. Oregon will be tested early with a road trip to East Lansing to take on the Michigan State Spartans in a rematch of one of the best games of the non-conference schedule last season. The key game in the race for the Pac-12 North title will once again be against Stanford, who the Ducks will play on the road in 2015. Other top games on the Oregon Ducks 2015 schedule will be against Utah, at Arizona State, and against USC, before the season finale civil war game against Oregon State.
