College Football Scores, Week 9: Oregon Pulls Away From USC Late, Wins 53-32

If last year was the Oregon Ducks taking the torch from the USC Trojans, this year was Oregon sprinting away from the field with it. USC gave Oregon a fight, and were up by three in the third quarter, before Oregon pulled away down the stretch and won by a comfortable 21-point margin. The win puts the Ducks at 8-0 for the first time since 1933 and will surely keep them atop both human polls when the rankings come out tomorrow.

LaMichael James had another Heisman-worthy day against the Trojans, rushing for 239 yards and three touchdowns on 36 carries, showing again, that he can carry this team on his back. Darron Thomas joined James in the great day department, throwing for 288 yards, four touchdowns and only one interception. Jeff Maehl led the Duck receivers, catching eight passes for 145 yards and three scores.

For the Trojans, it was Matt Barkley carrying the load, completing 26 of 49 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown, with one interception. Marc Tyler added 69 yards and two touchdowns on the ground and Ronald Johnson caught four passes for 65 yards and a touchdown.

The Ducks fell just shy of 600 yards of total offense, finishing with 599 yards on the day, 311 of which came on the ground. USC couldn’t match the output, putting up 377 yards. Each team had mistakes on offense, with Oregon turning the ball over twice and USC three times.

Down 32-29, Oregon scored 24 unanswered points from the 11:09 mark of the third quarter to seal the game, once again putting on a show in primetime on national TV. Sitting second in the BCS poll, Oregon controls its own destiny and is looking like a strong contender for the BCS National Championship Game in January.

Chip Kelly and the Ducks improve to 8-0 while the Trojans fall to 5-3 on the season. The Ducks return to Autzen next week to take on the Washington Huskies. USC hosts Arizona State at the Coliseum next Saturday.

College Football Scores, Week 9: Arizona State Destroys Washington State, 42-0

After three weeks of inspired performances, Washington State suffered a huge letdown in the desert against Arizona State today. The offense never got in gear and the defense made ASU quarterback Steven Three look like a Heisman contender as the Sun Devils rolled to a victory. The ASU offense cruised all day en route to 493 yards of total offense, easily dwarfing WSU's 264yards.

Threet, in just over two quarters of work, was 26-32 for 300 yards and three touchdowns. Dennis Erickson called off the dogs in the second half, giving Brock Osweiler some work while resting Threet. Cameron Marshall led the Sun Devils on the ground with 43 yards and a touchdown.

Jeff Tuel had his eighth straight game with 200 yards passing, throwing for exactly 200 yards and two interceptions. The Cougars still couldn't find a way to get a run game going, rushing for 8 net yards. The Cougars were also careless with the ball, turning it over three times.

The Cougars fall to 1-8 and the Sun Devils improve to 4-4. Washington State heads home to Pullman licking their wounds to take on the Cal Bears next Saturday. Arizona State takes on USC in the Coliseum.

Locker had an off game, completing 7-14 passes for 64 yards and two interceptions. The shutout loss was Washington's first at Husky Stadium since 1978.

The Husky defense had a tough time slowing down the Cardinal all day. Standford had 407 yards of total offense, easily besting Washington's 107 yards. Stanford also won the turnover battle, causing two while only giving up one.

Stepfan Taylor lead Stanford on the ground, rushing for yards and touchdowns. Andrew Luck also did some damage in the run game, breaking off a 51-yard touchdown run en route to 92 total rushing yards. Ryan Whalen caught five passes for 59 yards.

For the Huskies, Chris Polk carried the ball 13 times for 17 yards. Locker's favorite target, Jermaine Kearse, caught four passes for 53 yards.

College Football Scores, Week 9: Cal Stumbles On The Road At OSU; Kevin Riley Injured

The Cal Bears’ road woes continued again today against Oregon State. After the Bears rolled over Arizona State in Berkley last weekend, they travelled to Corvallis and laid an egg against the Beavers, losing 35-7. The biggest loss for the Bears, however, didn’t come on the scoreboard. Starting quarterback Kevin Riley left the game on a cart with an apparent knee injury. His status is still unknown.

Jacquizz Rodgers had another outstanding day, rushing for 119 yards and three touchdowns while also completing one pass for a touchdown. Quarterback Ryan Katz managed the game well, throwing for 185 yards and a touchdown.
In place of the injured Riley, Brock Mansion threw for 138 yards and a touchdown. Shane Vereen paced the Cal running backs, but had a slow day, rushing for 53 yards. Cal’s only touchdown came late in the fourth quarter when Mansion hit Anthony Miller for a 45-yard touchdown.

Cal falls to 4-5 with the loss and Oregon State improves to 5-3. The Bears travel to Pullman next week to take on the Washington State Cougars. Oregon State travels to Pasedena to take on the UCLA Bruins next Saturday.
