Oregon Ducks and Mariota Escape Pullman with a Victory #GoDucks #Pac12 #GoCougs

Pullman, Washington – a place where strange things happen, espcecially when you are the visiting Oregon Ducks. The momentum at the start of the game was clear, and it did not go to the Oregon Ducks. Washington State started out of the gate hot. In what seemed strange in a pretty much straight passing offense, the first two plays of the game were running plays, followed by a pass and a punt. It…

Oregon Ducks on Upset Alert at Washington State? #GoDucks #Pac12

Anytime your most recent road record(from last season) is 0-2 entering the following season it should be a concern. Add to that that the Oregon Ducks Defense at times during the non conference schedule has not been what I would consider ‘solid’ allowing opposing teams yardage both on the ground and through the air and the recipe entering the first Pac-12 Conference game of the season on Saturday…

Mariota Helping Oregon Leap Wyoming, Oregon Ducks Lead at HALF #GoDucks #Pac12

The Oregon Ducks started the game against Wyoming looking to make an early statement. However, it did not go their way in the beginning as Starting Offensive Lineman Jake Fisher went down with what appeared to be a left leg injury and was later seen departing on a cart. Not a good sign for a team who is going though offensive lineman like crazy right now. Wyoming then had a goal line stand on…
