Despite some of the worst weather conditions in recent memory at Autzen Stadium, Oregon head football coach Mark Helfrich said he was extremely pleased with his teams effort and focus.
“Yeah, it was crazy out there” said Helfrich after the game.
“I flashed back to Coos Bay days there for a while,…the fans in the second half that stayed there,.. and the students …that was awesome…that was a meritorious service.”
Helfrich said the win over Cal was set in motion by the defense who caused 4 fumbles, 6 pass break ups and 2 quarterback sacks.
“Defense was awesome” explained Helfrich.
“,…it set the tempo in every regard,… we got a couple of lucky bounces in ball handling conditions that didn’t turn into turnovers,…can’t say enough about our effort,…especially in the first half.”
