Previewing the biggest Oregon-Oregon State game in years

Oregon State appears to have rediscovered its mojo at just the right time and the Beavers head to Eugene to face a Ducks squad that is reeling from injuries and a blowout administered
by the Utah Utes.
Storylines abound in what is perhaps the most significant edition of the still unnamed rivalry game since 2009.
This week, The Oregonian/OregonLive's Aaron Fentress, Nick Daschel and James Crepea join forces to break down all the various storylines on a special collaboration edition of the Ducks Confidential and Beaver Banter podcasts
They discussed:

How OSU is feeling coming off huge win over ASU to move to 7-4 most wins since 2013. How will Ducks rebound after devastating loss at Utah 

Who wins the battle between Oregon's defense and OSU's running attack

Who has the edge in the quarterback battle?
