Oregon's defense has actually held mostly steady this year, falling only from 22nd in Def. F/+ in 2013 to 28th today. Over the course of so many snaps (93) and so many passes, you're simply going to give up some points and yards like the Ducks did to Cal. Still ... Cal finished drives pretty well and converted more than half of their passing downs. That put a lot of pressure on Oregon's own offense to keep cranking out big plays. The Ducks did just that, but you don't want to have to rely on that.
On the bright side, Oregon's second in Off. F/+ despite the early-season line issues. That's encouraging considering Stanford (third in Def. F/+) is on the horizon.
Meanwhile, Cal is now 4-4 with two one-possession losses and a competitive loss to Oregon. If the Bears don't win at Oregon State on Saturday, a bowl bid might be tricky, but this is still a hell of a turnaround from last season.
