Should be a close game, although if the team that Oklahoma was last week goes into Autzen, they will get destroyed.
I agree, i like stewart a lot as well. Is he healthy though?
I thinned it down a little but this is from the local paper in Eugene,
Stewart sprained his ankle last week. He will travel with the team this week to play Fresno St. but wont be in the starting line up. Oregon's policy is that a player must be "full go" during Wednesday's practice to be in the starting lineup. Stewart participated in that workout on a very limited basis. Coach Belotti feels he should be close to 95% by game time but if hes not he probably wont play. In place of Stewart, fellow sophomore Jeremiah Johnson will make his first collegiate start. Johnson rushed for 79 yards on 10 carries last week against Stanford, with a long run of 52 yards.
I hope Coach Belotti or Stewart himself doesnt risk further injury by rushing him back too soon. We really need him agianst Oklahoma.
