In the midst of preparing for their first road trip of the season to play Washington State, ( Saturday – ESPN ) the No. 2 Ducks still find a little time to have fun, especially if it’s at the expense of their all-star quarterback Marcus Mariota.
When No. 2 Oregon ( 3-0 ) arrives into the Palouse Saturday evening ( ESPN – 7:30 pm ) to take on the pass happy Washington State Cougars ( 1-2 ), the Ducks defense will do its best to limit big plays.
With an offense that’s predicated on ‘big plays’, that’s a tall task for a defense that over three games is allowing 150 rushing yards per game, 275 passing yards per game and 425 total yards per game.Featured Video
With just three days remaining in No. 2 Oregon’s preparations for Saturday’s match-up with Washington State in Pullman, Mark Helfrich and his staff are knee deep in game planning trying to once again find ways to limit Mike Leach’s high flying circus act of an offense led by Cougar quarterback Connor Halliday.Featured Video
