Oregon's 2012 campaign got off to a strong start last week when they defeated the Arkansas State Red Wolves, 57-34. The Ducks jumped out to a 29-point first-quarter lead and coasted the rest of the way. Quarterback Marcus Mariota, the redshirt freshman charged with replacing Darron Thomas, threw for 200 yards and three touchdowns as the Ducks' offense picked up a total of 605 yards.
