It was supposed to be a shootout, and it was. De'Anthony Thomas and Lavasier Tuinei scored two TDs each as Oregon beat Wisconsin 45-38 in a Rose Bowl filled with offensive records.
BEST OF MAXIM
Oregon's fastest player was gone before a Badger could take a step.
In the closing seconds of the Rose Bowl's first quarter Monday, freshman De'Anthony Thomas -- 5 feet 9 and 173 pounds of speed -- took a handoff on the Oregon 9-yard line and was in the end zone in a matter of seconds.
"I just saw open field and tried to take it for a touchdown," said Thomas...
At 6-foot-7, 325 pounds, Mark Asper looks like a dude who could do some damage with a hard squeeze. But when a man began choking at a nearby table while Asper was eating dinner last week, the senior offensive tackle for the University of Oregon used just the right amount of pressure. Asper, and Eagle scout, did his good turn for the day when he performed the Heimlich maneuver on...
Have you ever been to a college football bowl game pep rally? It’s the most proper of propaganda for the institution of higher learning; and football. Everyone should attend at least one in their lives- but not your alma mater. A school you have no connection to will give you proper perspective and objectivity.
Or go to an Oregon Ducks BCS Bowl pep rally, because they have the...
Oregon running back LaMichael James talks about getting his first bowl victory, De'Anthony Thomas, Wisconsin's prolific offense and on making a future decision.
The 2012 Rose Bowl very well could be remembered for any number of things: De’Anthony Thomas; Russell Wilson’s bizarre decision to spike the ball with just two seconds left; or really, any number of record-setting performances that made the game an instant classic, and one of the few bowl games to live up to the hype this holiday season.
One thing that it thankfully won’t...
What do you get when you combine an 82-degree day with an Oregon Duck team looking for redemption in the Rose Bowl? An explosion of sorts -- and this one is offensive. Bruce Feldman says all that?s left for the Ducks is to win The Big One.
Oregon's incredible offense busted up Wisconsin and the record books on the way to the Ducks' first Rose Bowl victory in 95 years. Darron Thomas passed for three touchdowns, De'Anthony Thomas scored on runs of 91 and 64 yards, and the No. 6 Ducks earned their first bowl victory under coach Chip Kelly, holding off Wisconsin 45-38 Monday night in the highest-scoring Rose...
Oregon’s De'Anthony Thomas certainly did his part to help the Ducks beat Wisconsin in the highest scoring Rose Bowl Game in history.
The freshman running back finished with 155 yards, including this incredible 91-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.
Check out the video.
The Ducks ran up enough yards — 621 to Wisconsin’s 509 — to win 45-38.
It was their first Rose...
GO DUCKS!• Ted Miller says the Duck defense is ready to be underestimated.There is some resignation to Nick Aliotti -- "I'm trying to answer your question here," he repeatedly said to reporters -- because he'd like for his defense to get more credit, but he also knows that Oregon's national perception is gaudy uniforms and gaudy offensive statistics. That...
