Played on Paper: Ducks v. Cal

They say you don't play games on paper and that statistics only provide one with a small, if not incomplete, glimpse of what to expect out of a given team, matchup, or scenario. While recognizing these truths, DuckTerritory has also simultaneously cast them aside, providing you with a comprehensive statistical comparison between the Ducks and their upcoming opponent for the week. This week, Oregon faces California Saturday night at Memorial Stadium in Berkeley.

*Oregon won the last time in Berkeley (2010), but is just 1-3 in their last four trips to Memorial Stadium.
