That's how rivals.com describes it.
What a way to dismiss all the pundits' predictions! They expected the Ducks would fall to Huskies, would not get its 6th win in a row. Booo!! Huskies are no where near where the Ducks are - the elite two programs in Pac-10.
Best of all, the entire Oregon team won this game, not just Jeremiah Masoli and not just the offense team. The special team blocked a punt for a touchdown and used a fake field goal to set up another TD. The defense corralled Washington quarterback Jake Locker, forced three turnovers and kept the Huskies out of the end zone until the fourth quarter.
And, of course Masoli. He completed 14 of 22 throws for 157 yards and a touchdown. He also added TD runs of 1 and 3 yards as part of his 54 yards rushing.
LaMichael James, Oregon’s workhorse since LeGarrette Blount’s suspension, rushed for 154 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including a 56-yard TD sprint in the fourth quarter to cap this Oregon party. And some says LaMichael James is the best running back in college football this season. Well, at least the best freshman running back!
