Oregon Vs. Stanford Score Update: Darron Thomas And Ducks Lead 8-0 After First Quarter

The Oregon Ducks are engaged in the biggest game of the year against the undefeated Stanford Cardinal. After a quarter of play in Palo Alto, the Ducks lead by a score of 8-0.

The defense has been strong for both teams in the early going. Both teams started the game by going three and out. Oregon's offense has been strangely silent, which speaks to how well the Stanford defense is performing. After a terrible punt by Stanford, the Ducks were starting a drive practically at midfield. That drive ended with Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas inexplicably throwing the ball away as he was tackled. The play, which could just as easily have been called intentional grounding or an interception, instead resulted in a sack for a 20-yard loss.

On the following possession, however, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck threw an interception to Dewitt Stuckey, who ran the ball back 30 yards to Stanford's red zone. A few plays later, Thomas connected with Lavasier Tuinei for an Oregon touchdown. David Paulson threw a pass to Mike Garrity for the two-point conversion to put the Ducks up by a score of 8-0.
