Happy Holiday for the Ducks

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:06 am

Within a month, the Ducks beat TWO schools who have team colors of Orange and Black and the initials OSU.

Fresh off the Civil War shellacking of Oregon State, the Ducks rallied from a ten point, first quarter deficit to spank the Cowboys of Oklahoma State 41-31.  Things started slowly for the Flock, only netting one scoring drive in the first half.  But the Spread came alive in the second half as the Ducks used a balanced ground / passing game to rattle off 35 points.


Anticipation for this game was high as both teams posses high-octane offenses.  With only 24 combine points in the first half, some began to speculate that this would be more of a defensive struggle.  However, with half-time adjustments in place, the heavyweight slugfest was on.  OSU QB  Zac Robinson and UO Qb Jeremiah Masoli drew their squads within one score of each other, only to match, blow-for-blow, throughout the third and most of the fourth quarter.  

The Ducks, picked in the preseason to finish second in the pac ten and opened the season ranked in the top-25, finish the season 10-3 and likely ranked in the top-15 in the final polls.
