  University of Oregon Ducks Facebook Page On September 14, the Tennessee Volunteers will come charging into Autzen stadium riding a two-game blowout streak.  The last time the Ducks and Vols played, in 2010, the Ducks prevailed, 48-13.  It remains to be seen if history will repeat itself. So far this season, Marcus Mariota has passed for 433 yards with a 53.1% completion rate, with 3 touchdowns and no picks.  Mariota has rushed 9 times, amassing 235 yards and 3 touchdowns on foot.  His Volunteer counterpart, Justin Worley, has thrown for 246 yards and 4 touchdowns, and 68.8% of his passes have found their mark.  Of the 32.2% that missed, however, one was intercepted.  Unlike Mariota, Worley has not had great success rushing, carrying the ball only 5 times in pursuit of gaining 20 yards with no touchdowns.  Although Worley has a fantastic completion percentage, Mariota is the better rusher by a very large margin. The Volunteers’ leading rusher, Rajion Neal, has gained 215 yards on 6.9 yards per carry, with 4 touchdowns to his credit.  Marlin Lane and Deanthonie Summerhill, his partners in the backfield, have rushed for 242 yards and 3 touchdowns together, all while averaging 6 yards per carry. For the Ducks, Deanthony Thomas leads all rushers with 252 yards, 5 touchdowns, and a spectacular 8.7 yard per carry average.  Byron Marshall has averaged 6.7 yards per carry en route to 155 total yards with a touchdown. Tennessee has intercepted 7 passes this season, and recovered 2 fumbles.  The Ducks have intercepted only 3 passes, but have also recovered 3 fumbles. Against Virginia, Oregon receiver Josh Huff blocked a punt. Statistics don’t win football games, teams win football games.  Tennessee is a good team that has improved since they last played Oregon.  The Ducks will also have home-field advantage, which is powerful, as anyone who has been to Autzen stadium knows quite well.  This will be tough game for both teams, and anything could happen.   Stats source: ESPN
