Oregon Ducks Score Yet Another Blowout in a 42-6 Win Against Stanford – Game Highlights
Yet another game, yet another blowout, and yet another win for the Ducks. Now, I’d like to say that this was anyone’s game, but let’s be real: it’s Sanford, who were thought to be the worst team in the conference.
To be fair, Stanford held their own quite well for a time, putting the Ducks through a slow start as the first quarter ended with a surprising 6-0 lead on the Cardinals’ side. A few fans were getting nervous at first, but the Ducks recovered fast, not allowing Stanford another point throughout the remaining three quarters.
Oregon vs Stanford Football Game Highlights
So, let’s get onto some of the key facts of the game.
The Ducks’ offense was lackluster in the beginning, which was why Stanford was able to get a few over on them. It wasn’t until the defensive line really came into action and opened a few holes in Stanford’s line that Bo Nix was able to get his throws in. Speaking of quarterbacks, their QB, Ashton Daniels, who is a fairly decent passer, went down from an injury.
Bo Nix was splendid as usual, really putting in the work and getting 27 of 32 passing, 290 yards, and 4 touchdowns. He’s on his way to breaking his record of 72% completed passes in a season; he’s at 80% thus far. He wasn’t the only one to do well, as Troy Franklin came in the field with 7 catches, 117 yards, and 2 touchdowns. He also has a touchdown reception in eight of Oregon’s last nine games, and this includes all five contests within this season. I can’t forget Bucky Irving and Jordan James, who did well, too, snagging a touchdown each, all the while Evan Williams came in clutch with seven tackles and a sack.
Oregon is finally getting better with their penalties, as they only got 2 for 20 yards this time.
After winning five games in a row with zero losses under their belt, it’s safe to say they’ve earned the break they’ll be receiving next week. It’s their first 5-0 since 2013, so they deserve to bask in it. They’ll need to prepare well, though, because in the week after, they’ll be on the road to Washington, which won’t be as much of a breeze as their earlier games. It’s a match that will have fans on the edge of their seat, that much is for sure.
