The Oregon Ducks welcome the UCLA Bruins tonight for a Thursday night Pac-10 clash on ESPN starting at 8:00 EDT. Oregon is arguably the best team in the nation, so it will be interesting to see how they handle the limelight tonight. Oregon is a 24 point home favorite tonight, with a total of 61.5 points expected.

It's a historic day for Oregon, as they will play their first game since being named the #1 team in the polls. The Ducks have been dominant all year long, thanks to the most prolific offense in the nation. Oregon is averaging 54.3 PPG and 567 YPG this season, both ranked #1 in the country. RB LaMichael James is becoming quite the Heisman Trophy candidate, as he leads the nation with nearly 170 rushing YPG and 9 TD's this season.  QB Darron Thomas has been tremendous in leading an offense that has scored at least 40 PTS in every game this season. Thomas has combined for nearly 1,500 total through the air and on the ground in 5 games this season, including 16 TD's. Defensively, Oregon has struggled a bit of late, yet are only allowing 16.3 PPG for the season. The Ducks are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in October. Oregon is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games overall. The Ducks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a home favorite. The Ducks are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games as a home favorite of more than 10 points. Oregon is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games overall. The Ducks are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games.

The Ducks are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a bye week. Over is 8-1 in the Ducks last 9 conference games.

UCLA has been either really good or really bad, with little in between. The Bruins are coming off arguably their worst game of the season, a 7-35 loss to California. The Bruins are coming off a much needed bye week, so one can expect to see a far better performance from them tonight in front of a national audience. Tonight's game against Oregon will be the 4th time the Bruins have faced a ranked team. Thus far, UCLA is 2-1 SU and ATS against those ranked schools, with both of their SU wins coming as the listed underdog. The Bruins have struggled with the Ducks of late, losing 7 of the past 9 meetings SU. With injury concerns at several positions, including QB, UCLA is likely to lean on RB Johnathan Franklin tonight. Franklin is 2nd in the Pac-10 with 113 rushing YPG this season. The Bruins have given up more than 30 PTS in 2 of their 3 road games this season, and now they are facing the best offense in all of college football. The Bruins are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog of more than 10 points. UCLA is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game. The Bruins are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog. UCLA is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games played in October. The Bruins are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a bye week.

The Bruins are 23-10 ATS in their last 33 games following a SU loss. The Under is 7-1 in the Bruins last 8 games following a bye week.
