Oregon Ducks Logo Pac-12Oregon let Saturday’s game against Washington slip away when it seemed like they would keep their CFP hopes alive, instead they are now on thinner ice to get to the Pac-12 Championship game with 2 games left.

Duck fans should not give up on this team because they’re still capable of winning a great bowl game and a conference crown.

On today’s episode of Locked On Ducks, I look at what could be to come if the Ducks get back to playing the sort of football we saw on their eight-game winning streak.

What’s the biggest thing they need to change against Utah and Oregon State to lock up another trip to Las Vegas?

Oregon’s defense needs a dramatic re-tooling after this season, but two of its key players this year have been LB Noah Sewell and CB Christian Gonzales.

Is there any chance that either could come back for one more season in Eugene instead of going to the NFL Draft?
