Washington Huskies At Oregon Ducks Second Quarter Update - Oregon Leads 28-6

The quarter opened with Oregon looking at 4th and goal from the 3 yard line, and they decided to go for it, and a Marcus Mariota speed option got the Ducks into the end zone.

The Dawgs came out throwing, with a toss out of bounds, and then a 5 yard completion to DiAndre Campbell before Cyler Miles scrambled for a first down. Oregon committed an obvious pass interference penalty on the next play, which put the Huskies into Duck territory. On a 3rd and 7 Miles threw incomplete to Campbell, and the Huskies punted and pinned Oregon at the 1 yard line.

The Ducks hit a big play to Pharoah Brown which went almost 70 yards, and the Ducks were closing in on the end zone. The Huskies were able to force a 4th and 1 at the 2 yard line, which the Ducks converted for a 1st and goal from the 1. Royce Freeman took the next play into the endzone and gave the Ducks a 21-6 lead.

Needing to answer the Ducks on the next drive, the Huskies went three and out and punted.

The Ducks took over and promptly went right back to work, picking up yards virtually unimpeded across midfield, deep into Husky territory, until a 22 yard Mariota pass gave the Ducks 1st and goal from the 2 yard line. Andrew Hudson drew a holding penalty and Danny Shelton blew up a screen pass, forcing a field goal attempt from 33 yards. Oregon kickers always miss, and that remained true on this attempt.

Two plays after taking over, Miles threw an ugly interception -- his first of the year -- and the Ducks took the ball back near the red zone, looking to widen the lead. A couple of plays later they did on a Byron Marshall reception. 28-6.

The Husky 2 minute offense was typically ineffectual, and the half ended.
