Saturday, December 21st. Eugene, Oregon.

Last Season: 28-9 (12-6 Pac-12). Sweet Sixteen.

At the very end of the BYU non-conference schedule comes possibly the most intriguing matchup. Although Oregon lost 4 out of its top 5 leading scorers, the Ducks have reloaded. On top of a stellar recruiting class, the Ducks added high-impact transfer Mike Moser, who is essentially a walking double-double. In addition to Moser, Dana Altman and Oregon added Joseph Young, the former Houston Cougar who averaged 18 points per game last season. However, Young is still waiting on receiving clearance from the NCAA to play this season, and might sit out this year as a transfer. This would mean that that he would not be able to play against the Cougars on December 21st. The BYU Cougars will have their hands full with the Ducks.
