Who knew that all the Oregon Ducks had to do in order to blow the game wide open against the ASU Sun Devils was have their quarterback leave the game with a leg injury?
The game progressed pretty much as expected for the first half, with the Sun Devils and Ducks matching one another score for score in a fast-paced shootout. During the third quarter, however, quarterback Darron Thomas left the game with a leg injury. Of course, that's when the Ducks reeled off 17 unanswered points en route to blowing the game wide open.
Backup quarterback Bryan Bennett took the field, but had only two completions in five pass attempts. He preferred to let the running game do the talking. Of Oregon's 535 total yards, 326 of those yards came on the ground. Kenjon Barner had 30 carries for 164 yards all by himself, somewhat soothing the jangled nerves created by superstar LaMichael James sitting this game out with an injury. De'Anthony Thomas added two rushing touchdowns to a big win that should keep Oregon thoroughly entrenched in the top ten.
