Coming off Saturday's record-smashing 72-0 season opening win against New Mexico, the #11 Ducks now embark on a trip to SEC country and the 102,000 seat Neyland Stadium of Tennessee.
Like the Ducks, the Vols had their first shutout since 2003 with a 50-0 victory over Tennessee-Martin.
KVAL Sports will be on the road with the Ducks in Knoxville beginning Friday.
Saturday's kickoff from Rocky Top is set for 4:00 pacific time on ESPN2.
Oregon is favored by 13.5 points.
Monday, head coach Chip Kelly said he wasn't concerned with going up against UT defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox (played for Oregon '95-'99) who last year limited the Ducks to 8-points in the dismal opener in Boise as Wilcox was DC of the Broncos.
The most comprehensive conference coverage around is on Sunday afternoons at 4:00 after the NFL on CBS, then again following KVAL News at 11:00 on Sunday Nights.
After his first start at quarterback against New Mexico (13-23, 220 Yards, 2 TD, INT) Darron Thomas gave his thoughts on entering SEC country.
Kenjon Barner will resume his role as back up running back to LaMichael James. Barner will also go back to his normal spot of returning punts. Even though Cliff Harris broke a school-record with 2 punt returns for touchdowns against the Lobos, Barner is listed as the #1 option at PR on the depth chart.
