USA Today: Cal vs Oregon
No. 21 California and No. 13 Oregon, who meet in Eugene, are coming off a bye week. That was particularly timely for the Ducks as QB Dennis Dixon prepares for his first start in place of Kellen Clemens (broken ankle). He'll need TB Terrence Whitehead to increase his production. LB Desmond Bishop leads a Bears defense that has not looked sharp lately but is still allowing the fewest points in the Pac-10. Cal QB Joe Ayoob, who saved the day two weeks ago against WashingtonState, has RBs Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett for support. Oregon LB Anthony Trucks must drive into the backfield often to slow the Bears.
