The Oregon Ducks looked like they were on upset alert after only narrowly holding a five point lead over the Washington St. Cougars at halftime. Oregon looked sluggish on offense, they were making mistakes, and just looked plain sloppy.
Oh, then they realized they had De'Anthony Thomas on their team.

Two touchdown lead. Ducks have been fairly in control since then, and look well on their way to another conference victory.
It took only a minute into the second half that Thomas might be better and faster than everyone on the Washington State defense. Chip Kelly is really the master of the halftime adjustment, isn't he? Someone should really pay more attention to this head coach as one of college football's best.
Also, poor Tyree Toomer will have to live with that footage of getting juked out of his shoes for quite some time.
