The fourth quarter is about to get underway from Autzen Stadium, but this game is basically in the bag for the Oregon Ducks. After 45 minutes of play, UO leads the UCLA Bruins by a score of 49-24 and are preparing to score once again. Simply put, the Ducks are just too skilled offensively and their speed is giving UCLA a ton of problems.
The Bruins struck quickly to begin the second half to cut the lead to 35-24, but two late touchdowns by the Ducks have blown this game wide open. LaMichael James has been the MVP thus far, carrying the ball 22 times for an incredible 154 yards and three touchdowns. Darron Thomas has done a nice job pacing the offense, throwing for 219 yards, three touchdowns, and rushing for 60 yards of his own.
Quarterback Kevin Prince has had no time to operate in the pocket and has thrown for just 111 yards and a touchdown. Derrick Coleman leads the way on the ground for the Bruins with 61 rushing yards. Wide receiver Nelson Rosario has been one of the few bright spots, hauling in three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown.
The Ducks are now less than 15 minutes away from a Pac-12 championship and a likely bid in the Rose Bowl.
