After stumbling and looking out of synch in the game's first 9 minutes, the Ducks scored 59 unanswered points and 8 touchdowns in 8 possessions in a 59-14 win over Tennessee. Marcus Mariota led the electric offensive effort with 456 yards passing, while the defense used stifling pursuit to limit big plays, holding the Vols to a single touchdown in the first quarter until a late drive against the 2s and 3s.
