Week 7 College Football Picks: Are Marcus Mariota and Oregon Beatable?

by Jonathan GarzaOctober 12, 2013

101213-MariotaFor the second week in a row the talk around college football surrounds Washington, who fell just short of an upset bid last week against Stanford and will seek to rebound against Oregon.

But are Marcus Mariota and the Ducks too strong to be reckoned with?

They are still uncertain about the status of De’Anthony Thomas, who is a game-time decision, but Oregon hasn’t lost a road game in nearly four years, last falling Nov. 7, 2009 at Stanford, 51-42.

Still, there is a lot to learn about the Ducks and an idea will begin to be formed tonight.

Check out that pick and more in our Week 7 college football picks.
