The Duck Stops Here:
Oregon's offensive line had a very poor game against Stanford. Marcus Mariota was sacked three times and harassed all night. The Ducks running game was limited to a season-worst 62 yards on 24 carries, 2.4 per attempt.
Utah is second in the country with 33 sacks in just 9 games, a FBS-leading 3.67 per game. They blitz well. They feature two big defensive tackles and active linebackers. With quarterback Marcus Mariota wearing a knee brace, the offensive line has to do a better job protecting him.
Byron Marshall has 925 yards rushing and could go over the 1,000-yard plateau. The Utes have held opponents to just 3.5 yards per rush on the season, but they're giving up 240 yards a game through the air, and they've only picked off two passes all season.
Utes starting quarterback Tyler Wilson did not travel with the team. He's home after suffering a concussion last week. Adam Schultz starts in his place, a 6-1, 205-lb. sophomore from Muskego, Wisconsin who has appeared i...
BEST OF MAXIM
A week ago, Marcus Mariota had the world at his feet and the college football stage to use as his canvas.The redshirt sophomore was supposed to show the world that the Heisman Trophy was his – more so than it needed to be in the hands of Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel or Jameis Winston of FSU or even someone like Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch.But Mariota did not get the memo...
While many ponder the health of quarterback Marcus Mariota's left knee, Oregon's focus is solely on moving on.
The sixth-ranked Ducks are eager to bury last week's loss to Stanford. The first step will come on Saturday when they host Utah.
There's no doubt that the 26-20 loss to the Cardinal spoiled the Ducks' shot at a spot in the national championship game...
In the Ducks’ last 2 matchups, they have scored 20 or more points during the 4th quarter. Stanford’s victory against Oregon gave fans a basis for comparison, to see what the Duck offense looks like when it’s firing on all cylinders, as opposed to being stuffed. Here’s a closer look at what the Ducks have done to achieve optimal 4th quarter altitude.
Oregon rode the pinpoint passing of Marcus Mariota, an 86-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by De'Anthony Thomas and a stubborn defense to a 44-21 win over Utah, improving their record to 9-1, 6-1 in the PAC-12.
Fans got an additional treat on the drive home as many tuned their car radios to Stanford-USC game. The Trojans Andre Heidari nailed a 47-yard field goal with 19 seconds...
After a tough loss against Stanford last week, the Ducks return to Eugene for a home matchup against the Utah Utes. The Ducks haven’t squared off against the Utes since 2009, when Utah lost to Oregon by a touchdown. Now ranked #6 in the BCS standings, Oregon has a chance this week to improve their bowl placement, while Utah goes into the game unranked, hoping to topple Oregon for...
EUGENE – Perhaps it was a lingering of the sting that was the loss to Stanford last week, but for over two quarters the Oregon Ducks seemed to sleep walk through the paces. Then De’Anthony Thomas took a kickoff back 86-yards for a touchdown and the Oregon Ducks were wide awake and won 44-21. Marcus Mariota guided the team by throwing for 288 yards and three touchdowns.
EUGENE – The Oregon Ducks appeared to struggle at times during the second quarter of its game with the Utah Utes but still hold a 17-7 lead at halftime. Quarterback Marcus Mariota was sacked three times but was 13-for-16 for 180 yards and two touchdowns.
Following Oregon's first loss of the year, the Ducks will wear a set of olive green "Sonic Boom" uniforms for its Nov. 16 game against Utah.

Poor Raymond Robertson. The 66-year-old Oregon Ducks fan thought the November 7 game against Stanford would go perfectly: he would drink some…
And that leads to the question will it give Jordan Lynch a bump in the Heisman Trophy race.
In front of a national TV audience (well, ESPN2 so we use that term loosely) Lynch was his typical self throwing for two touchdowns and running for a pair as well.
"If Jordan isn’t in the conversation for the Heisman I don’t know what people are watching, they were obviously...
