Oregon vs. Colorado: Ducks cruise into 4th with 70-14 lead

The Oregon Ducks are doing what they've done quite often this season, sitting on a big lead in the second half. The Ducks lead the Colorado Buffaloes 70-14 heading into the fourth quarter. Oregon jumped out to a 56-0 lead and pulled the starters before halftime.

The Buffaloes finally got on the board with a pair of touchdowns from running back Christian Powell in the third quarter. Powell is having a nice individual day, as he is also well over 100 yards rushing.

Bryan Bennett would add his second rushing touchdown of the day to push the Ducks total to 63. That capped a 10-play, 75-yard drive covering 4:07, an unusually long drive for the Oregon offense. Bennett would score again on the Ducks' next possession, this time from 17 yards out.

The Ducks now just need to coast to the finish line and they will be 8-0 ahead of a big match-up with USC next Saturday.
