Oregon's Dargan goes from sideline to spotlight

DALLAS (AP) The last and only time that Oregon previously played for a national championship was to cap the 2010 season, when the Ducks faced Auburn.

GIF: Jameis Winston’s Bizarre Fumble Is Returned 58 Yards For Oregon Touchdown

On a crucial 4th and 5 late in the third quarter, with his team down 18 to Oregon, Jameis Winston scrambled, managed to avoid multiple sacks, and went to release the ball.

For the first time in two seasons...
