Good thing they play exciting offense in the PAC-12, because based on the score of the Oregon/USC game Saturday night, the defense is sure missing.
Kenjon Barner ran for 321yards and 5 TD's, Marcus Mariota threw for 304 yards and 4 TD's as the Ducks racked up 730 yards of total offense on the night.
And they had to because USC had 615 themselves, led my Matt Barkley's 484 and 5 TD's.
But Oregon did what they had to and just exposed USC as a WAY over-rated team. The game got as close as 41-38 late in the 3rd quarter, but the Ducks just sprinted away from the apparently overmatched Trojan D.
Oregon moves to 9-0, 6-0 in the PAC-12, USC, who was picked by the Geniuses at ESPN to win it all, falls to 6-3, 4-3 in the PAC-12.
The Ducks, at least to us, solidified their hold as the 2nd best team in the NCAA and still have 2 hurdles left, Oregon State and the PAC-12 title game which may...or may not be a re-match with USC.

After establishing several records including a school best in single-game rushing with 321 yards on 38 carries and five touchdowns, Kenjon Barner discusses Oregon's 62-51 win over USC on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012 at the LA Coliseum.
Kenjon Barner and undefeated Oregon will hold off USC, while Washington and Utah will continue their late-season surges.
In a hyped matchup of superstars that featured Matt Barkley, Marquise Lee, De’Anthony Thomas and Marcus Mariota, it was another, less glamorous player who was the difference in Oregon’s 62-51 shootout win over USC on Saturday night.

FINALLY! It took 9 games before quarterback Marcus Mariota and the first-string offense for the Oregon Ducks got to play an entire game. But they made the most of it.The Ducks’ offense usually blows opponents out in the first half and Mariota and crew only get 30 minutes or less to rack up impressive stats. This game, however, went down to the wire and Mariota proved why he is...
