The Oregon Ducks will take their undefeated streak on the road this week to Stanford Stadium where they will face the Stanford Cardinal.

Things don’t get any easier for the Cardinals as they will be hosting the Oregon Ducks on Saturday evening in week 5 of the college football season. Will the Ducks win in a rout or will the Cardinals keep the game closer than expected? Let’s take a look at how these teams have fared this season.
