Mario Cristobal left Oregon to take over the Miami Hurricanes, and the Ducks will have passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon as the interim head coach. Meanwhile, Lincoln Riley left for the USC Trojans, and Bob Stoops will be back on the sideline to coach in the bowl game.

In a game with this much turnover with coaches and opt outs, let’s go with Oregon even though it sounds like the Ducks will be without a ton of players for this matchup. The Ducks have most of their coaching staff sticking around for this game, while Lincoln Riley already brought plenty of staff members with him to USC. Motivation is impossible to predict in this one, which is another reason why siding with the underdog by more than a field goal is the best way to go.
