Oregon 48 – 24 Oregon State There was a lot of hope in the city of Corvallis this morning as thousands of Oregon State Beaver fans flocked to Reser Stadium to see if their football program could repeat what the Stanford Cardinal did last week and beat the Ducks. After it was all over, however, the Oregon Ducks asserted their dominance in the rivalry, trouncing the Beavers by a score of 48-24. A close score at halftime combined with a Beaver touchdown to close up the score at 20-17 early in the third would quickly be quelled by the Ducks who scored 14 points in each of their last two quarters to hold reign over Reser. While the Ducks did jump onto the scoreboard first, a missed field goal by Alejandro Maldonado that was followed by an Oregon State touchdown had many Oregon fans fearing a repeat of the Stanford game last week. As evidenced by the final score, that turned out to be just a hope of Beaver fans all across the nation. Leading the Ducks on the ground was Kenjon Barner, rushing for a total of 198 yards and two touchdowns despite missing out on part of the game with an injury. De’Anthony Thomas added to the Oregon attack as he rushed for 122 yards and three touchdowns. Though the Ducks came away from the game uncertain about where they would be playing next, Oregon stayed true to their motto and won the day. Thomas was electrifying vs the Beavers in the 116th edition of The Civil War. (Photo: Thomas Boyd/Oregonlive.com) Here are this week’s love ‘em and hate ‘em from another big Oregon victory. Love ‘Em 16 in a Row One of the most unappreciated facts about the Oregon Ducks under Chip Kelly is the fact that they have not lost a true road contest in 16 games (their last road loss was to Stanford in 2009). No matter the atmosphere the Ducks have proved they can win wherever they travel. Barner’s Back Kenjon Barner was held in check last week when the Cardinal shut down the Duck offensive attack; this week would be a lot different. As mentioned before, Barner rushed for a total of 198 yards, adding to his already impressive stats from this season. The determined and quiet senior flashed speed and agility, cutting the ball to the outside on numerous occasions to fuel Oregon’s offense. Turnovers Galore The Duck defense has been a ball-hawking machine all season long and that would not change on Saturday afternoon. Oregon’s defense and special teams found their way to six turnovers on the night, giving the Oregon offense all that it needed to blow by the Beavers. Hate ‘Em Maldonado Is this kid really a kicker? Penalties Stack Up Luckily for the Ducks, penalties did not play a factor in determining the victor of this football game. As has been the case for most of the season, Oregon committed a significant number of penalties and gave up a lot of yards in that regard. This afternoon the Ducks committed nine penalties for 86 yards.  CLICK HERE CHECK OUT THE DUCKS BLOG IN OUR CLUBHOUSE TODAY AT NWSB!
