Oregon vs. USC: Ducks lead 48-38 over Trojans after 3rd quarter

The No. 4 Oregon Ducks lead the No. 17 USC Trojans at the Los Angeles Coliseum by the score of 48-38 after three quarters of play in what has been a highly entertaining game.

The Trojans were able to cut Oregon's lead down to just three points in the third quarter, but it wasn't long until the Ducks quick-strike offense put the team back in front by ten. In fact, it took just four plays for the Ducks to drive 74 yards for the score.

After the two teams combined for more than 800 total yards of offense in the first half, Oregon and USC continued their offensive performances, combining for 28 points in the third quarter behind each of their star quarterbacks.

For Oregon, it is quarterback Marcus Mariota putting on a show, as the freshman has completed 17 of 20 passes for 271 yards and four touchdowns while picking up an additional 87 on the ground.

USC's quarterback Matt Barkley is doing his best to match the star freshman, putting up 342 yards of his own with three touchdowns, but also two interceptions.
