Oregon vs. Kansas State score: Ducks lead 15-0 after first quarter of Fiesta Bowl

Kevin Casey

The Oregon Ducks got off to a good start in the Fiesta Bowl and lead Kansas State 15-0 after the first quarter.

It didn't take the Oregon Ducks long to strike in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl as De'Anthony Thomas returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown.

Thomas' 94-yard kickoff return touchdown put the Ducks on the board just 12 seconds into the game. Oregon converted the two-point conversion to go up 8-0. Thomas would add a second first-quarter touchdown -- this one on a 23-yard reception -- to extend Oregon's lead to 15-0.

While the Oregon offense hasn't had any problem putting up points, the Oregon defense had a lot of success in slowing the Wildcats during the first quarter. Kansas State gained just 34 yards on its first two possessions. The Wildcats didn't have any success until their third drive, but have still struggled to convert big plays against the Ducks.

Oregon has limited Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein to just 20 passing yards on 2 of 6 passing. While the Ducks have kept the Wildcats off the scoreboard, Kansas State is threatening and will begin the second quarter with a first-and-10 from the Oregon six-yard line.
