Oregon is on the heels of a Pac-12 Championship victory and a Fiesta Bowl bid. They were 4-3 last season and finished the season unranked. 

Mario Cristobal recorded a top-10 recruiting class this offseason, signing 19 4-star recruits. 

The biggest question mark will be who starts at quarterback after the departure of Tyler Shough, who entered the NCAA transfer portal. Anthony Brown is currently the leader in the clubhouse to start, but it could be a three-man race with Ty Thompson and Jay Butterfield very capable of winning the starting job. 

The Ducks are No. 16 in the 2021 preseason polls.
