I’m not going to say it was completely expected for there to be an absolute blowout on the side of the Ducks, but I am going to say that we should 100% not be surprised in the least at the end result.
No disrespect to the Colorado Buffaloes, because they certainly played their hearts out, and it was a shock to everyone when they came into game No. 4 with three wins and zero losses under their belt. However, I’m now proud to say that we just handed them their first loss, serving them a defeat of 42-6.
Oregon Ducks Vs Colorado Buffaloes Football Game Highlights
With that, let’s get onto some of the key details of the game.
Bo Nix impressed as usual, grabbing a 28 of 33, going 276 yards, scoring 3 touchdowns, and 1 interception.
Troy Franklin was also there to make some noise, as he got 8 catches, 126 yards, and 2 touchdowns.
Evan Williams also showed off his skills as well with 4 tackles, 3 solo, 1.5 sacks, and 1.5 tackles for loss.
I would be remiss if I were to leave out Bucky Irving with his ten carries and 89 yards. He continuously broke tackles throughout the game for those extra yards.
Just like last game, the Ducks were penalized 9 times for 80 yards. Colorado, however, was penalized 12 times for 103 yards.
Ever since the beginning of the season, speculators have been iffy about the state of defense when it comes to the Ducks. Yes, the offense is top notch, but what is a good offense without a good defense? Well I can safely say that the defense was just as great. Colorado QB Shedeur Sanders was sacked 7 times throughout the game. They also held Colorado to 34 total yards for two and a half quarters. They gave the QB barely any room to breathe, much less any room to throw. It was the Ducks’ game through and through.
So although officially the overall score right now is 4-0, we might as well call it 5-0, because next Saturday the Ducks will be on their way to Palo Alto, where they’ll be playing Stanford. I don’t mean to sound too harsh, but expect a Ducks blowout the next time I report back, because Stanford is known so far as the worst in the conference. The game will take place in Stanford Stadium at 3:30 PT.
