Arkansas State journeyed across the country on Friday for an opportunity to make a statement on National Television when the Red Wolves take on No. 5 Oregon tonight on ESPN at 9:30 p.m. central time. Go "Inside" for AStateNation's Offensive and Defensive Key's of the Game.

Ducks dispatch Red Wolves with crisp, efficient execution

Business-like execution by the first team offense is the highlight of the first quarter. Mariota looks dazzling, 13/14 to start the game to a variety of targets. Good to see successful throws to Josh Huff, Keanon Lowe, Colt Lyerla. Great touch on the ball. Defense is swarming, and special teams stuff three kickoffs inside the 20 despite the new kickoff rule. Alonso starts the game...

Almost flawless execution besides an early sack when no one picked up on a stunt, and one dropped pass. It will be a bit of a challenge to get their attention on Monday, but Kelly has excelled at teaching the process.
