EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon football was in this exact scenario last season. The Ducks came off an emotional win over Washington, only to falter against Washington State.

The same opportunity presents itself for head coach Mario Cristobal and company. 

Oregon is coming off an impressive 35-31 comeback win against the Huskies. It was a game in which the Ducks were down by as many as 14 points in the second half. 

Now the Ducks will face a WSU team that is 4-3 overall and 1-2 in Pac-12 play. 

The Cougars are coming off a lopsided 41-10 win over Colorado.

The Ducks haven't defeated the Cougars since 2014.

"We recognize the fact we have not done a good enough job against Washington State for the past four years," Cristobal said. "They have a super high-powered offense with some impressive skill players and a great offensive line. They're defense has made it really difficult for years with all the movement and all the steaming that they have done. We recognize the challenge. We recognize we have to improve. Probably most importantly we recognize we havn't played our best football yet."

Oregon and Washington State will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 26, at Autzen Stadium.

It is also the Ducks Homecoming game.
