The No. 6 Oregon Ducks played well on one side of the ball during the first half but were inconsistent on the other side. The Oregon defense held the Utes to 137 total yards, intercepting quarterback Adam Schulz once. The only blemish on defense for the Ducks came in the second quarter on a 34-yard […]

After a rocky start, Oregon put on an encore performance to their 48-13 rout of Tennessee in 2010. The Ducks cruised to a 59-14 win, improving to 3-0 on the season. Early on it didn’t look like either team would coast to victory. Oregon’s typically smooth and efficient offense was inconsistent and sloppy early on, […]
While some college football players are viewed as being exceptional in some public’s eye, Oregon senior safety Brian Jackson is quick to point out that apart from football, they’re just like any other college student.
