Oregon travels to take on Stanford this weekend, as each put their win streak on the line.

Stanford holds the nations longest winning streak at 17 games, while Oregon is riding an 18 game conference winning streak. The Ducks last conference loss was in 2009 to Stanford.

Stanford brings the nation's third ranked run defense to try and stop the nation's leading rusher in LaMichael James. Offensively, the two teams are statistically very similar with less than 3 points separating their points per game (Stanford 48.2 and Oregon 46.0) and less than 6 yards separating them in total offense (Oregon 510.7 and Stanford 505.8). You start to see the difference philosophically between the two taking a look at the time of possession that Stanford dominates by almost 11 minutes (33:17 to 23:52).

Something has to give. The Ducks and Cardinal kick off Saturday at 8 eastern on ABC.
