“From 2009-2010 Chip Kelly and Harbaugh split the series 1-1 and it took 50 points by one or the other to win the game. Keep in mind, these have been top level programs battling for dominance of the conference. Then in 2011-2012 David Shaw went to battle with Kelly and they split the their series 1-1. The stakes were high because in most cases, this would in all likelihood be the only loss of the season for one program or the other.
Mark Helfrich took over the Ducks in 2013 and has gone 2-1 against the Cardinal. But yet another change came over the programs. While last year the Cardinal was still one of the top level programs, Oregon had already been sliding out of the picture. Now both are having down years, which people will point to as a reason this rivalry does not matter or is not a great game. However, this is one of the better match ups in college football because of the history and these games usually being great to watch. Be sure to watch this game just like you make sure to watch Alabama vs. LSU. This will not disappoint, which has been the standard for these games.”
