1. Khyree Jackson is active
When you hear about the defense of the Ducks, who do you think about first? Do you think Evan Williams, Jeffrey Bassa, Jordan Burch, or Tysheem Johnson? What if I tell you all these players played in the first matchup against Washington? Even though one of the biggest assets on the Ducks’ defense was missing and will be active in the Pac-12 Championship.
The player who will provide a huge impact for the Ducks this time is Khyree Jackson.
Jackson is a senior leader who transferred from Alabama and became a mainstay in the secondary that is surrounded by a lot of upperclassmen as well. Jackson leads the Ducks in interceptions and seventh in tackles. Jackson, the game after Washington, played out of his mind against Utah and fans need to be prepared to see this type of game on Friday.
Fans will be seeing Jackson covering the top receivers for Washington and going to show why he was one of the top prospects coming out of junior college.
Isn’t there a saying, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas?” This saying will become true for the Washington Huskies and Oregon Ducks on Dec. 1. Not only will bragging rights be on the line but, the richest prize in the Pac-12 is on the line.
In addition to this game, knowing who will come out on top will provide clearance for who will become one of the teams in the College Football Playoff and issue a final line on who should be the winner of the Heisman. At the end of the night, the Ducks will be walking out of Vegas as Pac-12 champs and Bo Nix will be one step closer to winning the Heisman.
