The Duck Stops Here:
The two Houston-area quarterbacks locked up in a district playoff game in the fall of their senior years. Luck's team won, but Thomas had better stats, including 101 yards rushing.
Thomas was 0-2 against Luck in high school, but he's 1-0 as an Oregon starter.

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ANNE. PETERSON AP Sports Writer Oregon running back LaMichael James simply knows that Stanford's rushing defense is good. Beyond that, he's s not going to analyze it too much.
He says he'll find out more on Saturday.
There's a big reason James isn't giving anything away. The No. 6 Ducks visit the No. 3 Cardinal...
Last week, the college football world trained its attention on the SEC for the latest "Game of the Century" between Alabama and LSU. This week, the focus shifts out to the West Coast, as the No. 4 Stanford Cardinal and No. 7 Oregon Ducks square off in Palo Alto for the lead in the Pac-12 North. Also on the line: a potential chance to play for the national championship....
University of Oregon punter Jackson Rice has been named one of ten semifinalists for the 2011 Ray Guy Award, which recognizes the most outstanding punter in college football.
Oregon Hoops blogger Jason Green points out the obvious. March Madness is a slim possibility. The Oregon Ducks led by E.J. Singler will have to win some big Pac 12 games and get off to a great start, since the Ducks only face one team ranked in the preseason top 25 in the first half of the season.
With the Stanford-Oregon game looming, Stanford fans packed the site of ESPN's College GameDay show, displaying some interesting signs. The Cardinal is ranked fourth in the latest BCS rankings despite being undefeated. One-loss Oregon, which played in last year's championship game, is ranked fifth. The teams meet up Saturday night in a game featuring two standout quarterbacks...
Ducks not getting untracked early on a soggy field, but neither is Stanford. And Darron Thomas keeps for a short gain on the first play.
To beat Stanford, the Ducks will have to minimize penetration and get something going through the air.
The teams trade three and outs to start the game, a very SEC start.
Oregon 53, Stanford 30.
Based on the final score, you're probably thinking "Business as usual," which is true to an extent: Oregon's never going to turn down three touchdown passes from Darron Thomas on the same night it gets 146 yards and three touchdowns on the ground from LaMichael James. Eighty-three points by both teams even eclipsed the over/under. But it...
Blending nine newcomers and opening the season on the road against a Top 10 team proved to be too much for the Oregon Ducks.
We are nine games into the Oregon Ducks' 2011 regular season and the weather has been extremely cooperative to date. Will that trend continue? For the answer, we turn to Oregon AMS Vice President Bobby Corser with Saturday's Duckcast:
Washington is still bowl eligible at 6-3 after getting beat down yet again by the Oregon Ducks, so now the Dawgs take to the road and visits the Trojans from USC. Can the Huskies rebound from a defeat that showed how far the Huskies still have to come to be competitive with the upper tier teams of the Pac-12? Here is what the staff thinks.
