Oregon vs. USC 2012: Blog reacts to the Ducks' offensive explosion against the Trojans

Robert Laberge

The Oregon Ducks couldn't be stopped, and Addicted to Quack couldn't help but watch.

It was an epic shootout, and the Oregon Ducks came out on top. And the good people at Addicted to Quack recognize that it was the most explosive offense in the land that brought the victory back to Oregon after a visit to the USC Trojans. What transpired was the Ducks' first close game of the season.

But only the Ducks could score 62 points in a close game. They beat the Trojans, 62-51, and did it with a performance on the ground that will be remembered for years to come.

The main story of the game was that the Oregon offense could not be stopped. Kenjon Barner could not be stopped.

ATQ is right. A school-record 321 yards and five touchdowns on 38 carries is the definition of unstoppable, and that's exactly what Barner put up. It was also a testament to a dominant performance by the Ducks' offensive line. They were also given props by ATQ.

But the defense was pretty bad. They gave up 620 yards of total offense to the Trojans. It's understandable though. It's not like the Trojans don't have talent. They actually have transcendent talent.

While it's easy to blame Oregon's defense, we need to give credit to USC. Their receivers are simply some of the best I've ever seen. Marqise Lee was the best player on the field tonight, and with how well Kenjon and Marcus [Mariota] played, that's saying something.

No defense and a lot of points. Any old-fashioned lover of football may have cringed watching it, but for the new generation of points-happy fans, this one was one to remember.
