The Oregon Ducks are very close to handing the Stanford Cardinal their first loss of the season and moving into a tie for first place in the Pac-12 North. In the fourth quarter, they lead by a score of 43-23.
The Ducks are apparently having little to no trouble dealing with the Palo Alto grass. Running back LaMichael James has 146 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries. Freshman De'Anthony Thomas has 17 rushing yards on five carries, in addition to two catches for 41 yards and a touchdown. Josh Huff is leading the Oregon receivers with 57 yards on two catches with a touchdown of his own.
The game has been a bit one-sided. In addition to the strong Oregon offense, the Ducks have done a great job keeping the pressure on Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. Although Luck has three passing touchdowns, the Ducks have grabbed a key interception and have shut down the Cardinal when it counted.
