Following the outcome of the Alabama-Auburn game, Ducks look forward to bowl season after Civil War win
Josh Huff caught the game-winning catch for Oregon in Friday’s Civil War with 29 seconds left in the game. Even for the plodding late-game football clock, 29 seconds is an extremely short amount of time. But compared to Saturday’s Alabama-Auburn game, 29 seconds seems like an eternity. On the penultimate play of the Iron Bowl, tenths […]

The Ducks play Oregon State in the 117th Civil War game in two days.

After Wednesday’s practice, he also talked about lessons learned from the Arizona loss and […]
John Neal can’t remember what he did for Thanksgiving last year, but one memory from more than two decades ago still stands out. Oregon’s secondary coach was celebrating the holiday with his family in Alabama. As Neal’s daughters, Kristin and Caitlin, devoured their turkey, his teenage son, Casey, would make an annoying sound with a […]
Oregon football practice recap: Arizona loss doesn’t prevent Oregon coaches from appreciating recent success
Oregon players, coaches and fans can all agree: Saturday’s loss to Arizona hurt. Not only did the Ducks get blown out by 26 points, they saw their Pac-12 Championship, Rose Bowl and BCS bowl hopes evaporate like dew in blazing sunlight. But the loss hasn’t caused head coach Mark Helfrich or defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti […]

Though Saturday’s 42-16 road loss to Arizona, which knocked the Ducks out of the running for a BCS Bowl bid, still […]
Mark Helfrich entered Arizona Stadium’s press room after the Saturday’s game with a demeanor one would expect from a coach whose team just lost by 26 points in a game it was expected to win. A slumped posture. A solemn voice. Eyes expressing a mixture of pain and sadness. He looked like someone who just […]

For the second time this season, the No. 5 ranked Ducks (9-2, 6-2) were outplayed. Not in the statistical standpoint, but rather in the results. After dropping to then No. 5 ranked Stanford two weeks ago, the Ducks mirrored a similar performance this evening against Arizona (7-4, 4-4). “We just didn’t make the most of […]

The Ducks have won the last five games against the Wildcats, including the last two on the road. The Oregon Ducks are looking for the […]
Many compare Arizona’s spread offense to Oregon’s. They are both run-first-type offenses with talented backs. Arizona’s Ka’Deem Carey will present the biggest challenge for the Ducks. He is a powerful, strong and fast running back. Carey, a Tucson, Ariz., native, has already rushed for over 1300 yards and 12 touchdowns. But the Ducks can’t focus too much […]
It’s been a streaky season for the Arizona Wildcats. The team won its first three games, then lost the next two, which were in turn followed by three wins and, you guessed it, two more in the loss column. If you play the pattern, Arizona is on pace to beat Oregon this Saturday in Tucson. […]
