Oregon Vs. Missouri St. Score Update: LaMichael James Leads Ducks To 56-7 Advantage Through Three Quarters

The No. 12 Oregon Ducks are putting on a show against the Missouri State Bears. The Ducks lead 56-7 through three quarters of play and may be able to threaten last week's huge total of 69 against the Nevada Wolf Pack if they piece together a huge fourth quarter.

LaMichael James has been on fire all game and continued to light up the Bears in the second half. On the very fourth play of the half, James broke off a 50-yard touchdown run to complement his 90-yard rushing touchdown from the first half. He has 204 yards and three touchdowns on twelve carries (for a ridiculous 17.0 yards-per-carry average).

De'Anthony Thomas has taken James' place in the backfield while Bryan Bennett has replaced starting quarterback Darron Thomas. The duo led the team down the field on Oregon's second drive of the half and Bennett connected with Colt Lyerla on a 26-yard touchdown pass to put Oregon up 49-7.

Bennett recorded a 22-yard touchdown to Eric Dungy later in the period. He has completed four-of-five passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns so far.

The Ducks are running wild in this one. How many points will they have by the end of the game? Stay tuned.
