Chip Kelly addresses the USC offense and the growth both teams have seen over a year.
When the most dramatic storyline during the course of a football game is whether or not the third-stringer will attempt a pass, chances are the scoreboard is going to be lopsided. From the opening kickoff, Oregon left little doubt they were the more talented team. Over the course of the 70-14 romp over Colorado, Oregon […]
On Saturday, the Ducks obliterated the Colorado Buffaloes and moved ahead of Louisiana Tech to become the highest-scoring team in the country. It still wasn’t enough to impress the Bowl Championship Series computers. No. 2 Florida lost to Georgia, but No. 5 Notre Dame beat Oklahoma — a much more impressive win in terms of […]
Darragh O’Neill’s punt bounced somewhere around the Ducks’ 40-yard line and continued to bounce toward the Ducks’ endzone before De’Anthony Thomas picked it up and continued to run in every direction except forward, scurrying left, right and backward and confusing not only the 11 Buffaloes trying to stop him but all 57,521 fans in attendance. […]
No. 4 Oregon did exactly what they were expected to do on Saturday afternoon against the University of Colorado Buffaloes
In the end, there were no surprises — no upsets, no letdowns and certainly no hope for the Buffaloes. No. 4 Oregon bruised, battered and broke Colorado 70-14 Saturday at Autzen Stadium, running over one of the country’s most generous defenses to the tune of 617 total yards and 30 first downs. The wire-to-wire win […]

We’re coming to you live from Autzen Stadium, where No. 4 Oregon is taking on the unranked Colorado Buffaloes. It’s the first matchup between the two teams in Oregon since Colorado and Utah helped create the Pac-12 last year. Numbers to watch. 130 - Rushing yards needed by senior running back Kenjon Barner to reach 1,000 […]
Kenjon Barner talks about his Heisman hopes, De’Anthony Thomas’ attitude and adding yoga and ballet to his routine.
Chip Kelly talks about his practice philosophy and going up against different offenses.
Avery Patterson talks about his role as quarterback of the dynamic Oregon secondary, making his family proud and running away with interceptions.
It’s easy to look past the Colorado Buffaloes. They dwell under the floorboards of the cellar in the conference this year, and even the Denver media has proclaimed they’ve entered the Dark Ages. With expectations so low, it’s fair to ask if the Ducks are locked in and focused.
Yes, Avery Patterson was just a yard short of scoring off an interception for the third consecutive week (as if the offense wasn’t scoring enough points). But nobody is upset. In fact, Patterson has become a popular guy lately.
I liked watching sports as a kid. Scratch that. I was obsessed with watching sports as a kid. My dad was worried for me. Not because I was some obese couch potato or airhead gamer, but because if I was talking, it was about sports.
Earlier this week, when the second BCS rankings came out, the Ducks dropped from third to fourth. This sent Duck fans into a frenzy. How could they make the title game now? They’re fourth! And Notre Dame is closing in on them. Voters surely are playing favorites with the SEC, right? In reality, the BCS […]
**Editor’s Note: Each week during football season we will feature an essay from the opponent’s student newspaper on how Oregon will lose. This week’s edition is from Shay Knolle, sports writer at University of Colorado’s CU Independent.** Men lie. Women lie. Numbers don’t. It’s easy for anyone to compare the numbers between the Buffs and […]
Oregon offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich talks about how teams have accounted for offensive weapons such as De’Anthony Thomas and how the offense has started in previous games.
The DUII charge against Ducks defensive tackle Isaac Remington will be dropped, officials said today. Remington was stopped on October 12 near the University of Oregon campus and passed a breathalyzer test with a blood alcohol level of .06 — below Oregon’s legal limit of .08. Oregon law allows officers to arrest a person for […]
Oregon head coach Chip Kelly says to be the best you have to play the best. The athletic department announced a home-and-home series with Ohio State on Monday, in what would amount to a rematch of the 2010 Rose Bowl. But when kickoff finally rolls around — Sept. 12, 2020, for the first matchup in […]
