More from Phil Steele

As always, Phil Steele released his picks today for top 25 games this weekend, and as might be expected, he likes the Ducks to win fairly big.
Steele has the Ducks winning 41-24 and outgaining UW 508-374, with Oregon getting 245 rushing yards to 171 for UW (which would be UW’s best other than the Syracuse game). He also has Oregon outgaining UW through the air 263-203.
Steele also has released his mid-season All-Pac-10 team, picking a first, second and third team.
There are no Huskies on the first team but he does have E.J. Savannah and Daniel Te’o-Nesheim on the second team and Jordan Reffett and Mesphin Forrester on the third team.
I’m a little surprised at the naming of Forrester ahead of, say, Troy Nolan of Arizona State who leads the conference in interceptions with five, including two returned for touchdowns.
I’m also a little surprised to see Savannah ahead of, say, Rey Maualuga of USC. USC’s problems have very little to do with its defense, which still leads the Pac-10 in total defense and pass defense and is second in rushing defense.
