Found September 25, 2013 on The Duck Stops Here:
There may be a quiz on this later: From the weekly news release and other sources, here are some stats and facts for the California at Oregon game, broadcast at 7:30 p.m. on the PAC-12 Network. In 15 carries, Marcus Mariota has 7 runs of 20 yards or more. The 15 include a sack and having to fall on a bad snap, and he's still averaging 17.5 yards a carry, tops in the nation. The Ducks have won four straight over Cal and 13 of the last 20 meetings since 1990. The last time the two teams met in the conference opener, Oregon blitzed the Bears 42-3 at Autzen behind a 3-touchdown effort by tight end Ed Dickson. In last season's meeting at Memorial Stadium, the Ducks won 59-17 with Mariota throwing for 377 yards and 6 tds (Scott Olmos, USA Today Photo). With both teams playing a no-huddle spread offense, there could be an offensive explosion of points, plays and yards in this game. Oregon leads the conference in points scored, total offense and rushing offense. Cal l...

Oregon Synonymous With The Ducks

Just the other day I was thinking about Oregon, not the Ducks even though that’s what most other people associate the state with.

I simply asked anyone and everyone I knew that has never lived in Oregon what are the first three things you think of when I say ...

Is Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota ready for the pros?

Every time Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick, and Robert Griffin III lead a touchdown drive, Marcus Mariota's draft stock goes up. Every time Michael Vick makes another bad decision, it goes up again. Mariota's stock would be high anyway. He's 6-4, 212 and can run a 4.5 40. He's smart, modest, and a hard worker. He gets the ball out of his hands quickly and makes...

Fans love sports for the Rudy stories and "Hoosiers"-style tales of underdogs that could, but this isn't one of those stories. Cal is young team with a first-year quarterback and a beat-up defense, thin in the secondary with two defensive ends out for the year.
