It is possible it could play out that way, but seems an odd forecast given how we have played every game this year, and how we played Oregon in Eugene last year with this staff, many of the same players.
We are an underdog for a good reason & I am not suggesting we are likely to win. Of course, we were at MSU too, so they play the game for a reason.
Utah is the only game we played tight early, and then they pulled away late. Every other game we have lost, we got behind early, made some adjustments, gradually caught up but didn't quite get there due to a dropped pass, a dumb penalty, a bad call, etc where we effectively beat ourselves.
The Oregon game last year in Eugene was a similar script. They got ahead early, we worked our way back into it, ought until the end, but came up just short. We might have won had the refs not blown the 2 point conversion call. Similar script.
You are forecasting the exact opposite will happen, we will actually show up with a good plan & ready to play at the start, get ahead or stay tight in 1H, then they will make adjustments and boat race us in 2H.
Anything is possible but that is the reverse of our experience pretty much the entire season and much of last season, so unlikley.
Hopefully we will show up ready to play with a good plan 1Q in this one.
