This game, the “Civil War” is turning into a rout. It’s 23-0, Oregon with left in the 2nd quarter.
Did you see Bryon Marshall catch a ball, break a tackle and score on a 77-yard play? That’s the play that made it 22-0, but the really interesting thing was watching the Oregon State players covering him. After the broken tackle, they just stood there and watched Marshall run into the end zone. Now the Beavers just went 3 and out again. As of right now, the Ducks look as competitive for a national title as anyone.
But there’s a long way to go. I’m watching Marcus Mariota and I keep saying “that’s a nice ball.” Now he just broke off a 23-yard run for a touchdown, after the extra point, they make it 30-0. Mariota didn’t really impress last year at the Alamo Bowl, but he’s putting on a clinic tonight.
It’s a face-first stomp.
