The Times' Chris Dufresne unveils his preseason college football top 25, one day (and team) at a time. No. 9 Oregon Oregon edged USC by four points for the top spot in this year's Pacific 10 Conference preseason football media poll. The off-season Sears Cup for distractions race was just as close. The Ducks, who ended the Trojans' seven-year run as conference champions last year, extended the battle into a postseason war of headlines. USC took home the crown by hiring Lane Kiffin, going on NCAA probation and replacing its football and baseball coaches, as well as its athletic director and university president.

Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli was suspended Friday for the upcoming season by Coach Chip Kelly after pleading guilty to second-degree burglary in the theft of a pair of laptops and a guitar from a campus fraternity. Masoli, who had been mentioned as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate, will remain on scholarship with the Ducks. "He does have a redshirt season available to him if he chooses to do that," Kelly said. Kelly announced the suspension just hours after Masoli appeared in Lane County Circuit Court to answer to the burglary charge.

Oregon's season started with a loss that was punctuated by running back LeGarrette Blount's infamous postgame punch. It ended Friday in the 96th Rose Bowl with the Ducks' usually high-powered offense made punchless by Ohio State. Blount, once again, played a pivotal role in the Ducks' 26-17 defeat. The senior from Florida, who was suspended after his Sept. 3 postgame outburst at Boise State, scored the Ducks' first touchdown. But his third-quarter fumble deep in Ohio State territory ended a scoring opportunity with Oregon trailing by two points.

The first time Todd Denlinger saw the Oregon offense on film, it left him a bit queasy. "You watch and you wonder what you can do against them," the Ohio State defensive lineman said. "They blew by everybody." Until Friday. That's when the Pacific 10 Conference's unstoppable force ran into Ohio State's immovable object. It wasn't much of a collision, with the Buckeyes' defense thoroughly dominating seventh-ranked Oregon in a 26-17 Rose Bowl victory. Consider: Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, who came in averaging 248 yards in total offense per game, got 90 on Friday.

Duck. Duck. Whoosh. Those bright flashes dancing through Arroyo Seco this afternoon will not be the traditional winter sun, but Oregon kids on the run. That chill whipping through the Pasadena trees will not be the familiar winter breeze, but Ohio kids on their knees. Cover up, bundle up, heads up, the Rose Bowl is about to become Ohhhs Bowl, thousands of mouths open in wonder, shaped like the letter that symbolizes the team about to capture breaths and steal hearts and make the battered Pacific 10 Conference whole again.

Oregon's thorny start has come up roses. Redshirt freshman LaMichael James ran for 166 yards and three touchdowns Thursday night to send No. 7 Oregon to the Rose Bowl with a 37-33 victory over No. 13 Oregon State in the Civil War. Oregon (10-2, 8-1) claimed the Pac-10 championship with the victory, ending USC's seven-season hold on the title. The Ducks, who have not been to the Rose Bowl since 1995, will face Ohio State in Pasadena on New Year's Day. LeGarrette Blount, who hadn't played since throwing a punch after Oregon's season-opening loss to Boise State, returned to the field and scored on a 12-yard run in the third quarter.

The best team in the country right now wears green and goes "quack, quack." The school has the same name as the state: Oregon. The uniforms may be ugly, but you couldn't even tell Saturday night because they were such a runaway kaleidoscope on the green turf at Autzen Stadium. Oregon's 47-20 victory over USC was so impressive it dropped several jaws along with the mascot's lower bill. This is not an argument for Oregon being No. 1 or whether the Ducks deserve to pass Boise State in the polls as long as Boise State doesn't lose.

USC, fifth in the Bowl Championship Series standings, looks to end a three-game losing streak in the state of Oregon. Oregon, 10th in the BCS, has won six consecutive games since losing its opener at Boise State. Times staff writer Gary Klein looks at some of the game's key issues and matchups: Different styles USC quarterback Matt Barkley's success at Ohio State, Notre Dame and California should prepare him well for the Pacific 10 Conference's noisiest stadium. After a self-described "mediocre" performance against Oregon State, Barkley worked this week to improve his footwork and to throw the ball consistently strong.

Before the season, USC's game at Oregon on Saturday looked like it could be the matchup of the year in the Pacific 10 Conference. The luster faded when Oregon lost its season opener to Boise State. It all but disappeared after USC fell at Washington on Sept. 19. Six weeks later, the Trojans and Ducks are back in the national spotlight with a marquee matchup that will have Pac-10 title implications and possibly more. Oregon (6-1) leads the Pac-10 with a 4-0 record. USC (6-1)

There are two burning questions surrounding No. 13 Oregon's visit to the Rose Bowl for a game against UCLA on Saturday. Who will be the Ducks' quarterback? What kind of fashion disaster will they be wearing as uniforms? Times staff writer Chris Foster looks at the key matchups and issues. Trying to making a point The Pacific 10 Conference's top offense comes to town and that means . . . absolutely nothing. Sure, Oregon averages 34 points and rolled 94 points the last two games, but that was with the nimble Jeremiah Masoli directing the spread offense.
