WSU vs. Oregon: Community prediction

The Cougars are set to face the Ducks; who do you think will win?

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Well, it's gameday, which I think is a good thing? So far, if I've learned anything in these polls it's that they are horribly wrong. For the last year and a half, every time the community picks WSU by a wide margin, they play horribly. Remember when something like 70 percent thought they would beat Cal last year? That was fun.

On the opposite side, when the community as a whole goes against the Cougs, things like the ASU game happen. Which brings us to today. During the offseason prediction series, 82 percent picked Oregon and I have a feeling that number could be even higher today.

Assuming the curse of the community prediction holds true yet again, it should be a fun night for the Cougs at CenturyLink.
