The Oregon Ducks came in at No. 7 in the first playoff poll released earlier this week. There is a reasonable path for them to crash the party and become the first PAC-12 team invited to the playoff in two years. However, they do need some help for them to sneak in as one of the top four teams. Let’s dive into six scenarios Duck fans NEED to root for so Oregon can make the playoff.
For the first time in two years the PAC-12 has a very real shot to crash the party. Oregon or Utah does not need chaos (aka everything listed above) to happen, but just a couple of those things happening as well as both the Utes and Ducks taking care of business would set up a play-in game in the most anticipated PAC-12 Championship ever.
