Eugene, OR -- The Ducks aren't the only ones going into week three of the season following a high-scoring performance.

Oregon will face a Montana team coming off a 61-17 win over North Alabama. 

The Grizzlies are 2-0 on the season led by quarterback Dalton Sneed. Sneed has passed for 696 yards with four touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns.

"Their quarterback is really a special player," Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal said. "He's a runner, he's a thrower, he's the heart and soul of the team. He'll throw is body around. Their is no hesitation in his game whatsoever. The ball is out quick and it's accurate."

The Grizzlies defense has also played well allowing just 17 points per game in the first two weeks of the season. 

"The back end of their defense does a really job communicating and passing off concepts and matching concepts as well," Cristobal said. "Just a very different scheme than what we've faced so we got to have a great week of preparation."

According to Cristobal, wide receiver Juwan Johnson is "50-50" on whether he will play Saturday after suffering a soft tissue injury. Tight end Cam McCormick is day-to-day while kicker Adam Stack will be transferring from the program. 

Oregon and Montana are set for 7:45 p.m. Saturday at Autzen Stadium.
