The Oregon Ducks had an offensive explosion in the first half of their 41-7 contest against the Nevada Wolf Pack. The Ducks have quarterback Darron Thomas to thank for that. He already has 228 yards and five touchdowns on 12-of-18 passing. Remember, we still have another half of football to play.
Oregon scored twice in the first quarter, once on a four-yard run by LaMichael James and another on a three-yard pass from Thomas to Lavasier Tuinei. The Ducks elected to go for two-points after the first score but failed to convert.
Oregon scored four times in the second quarter, with three straight scores to open the second quarter. Thomas found James for a 44-yard strike, Rahsaan Vaughn for a 25-yard score, Colt Lyerla for a 2-yard score and finally De'Anthony Thomas for a 24-yard touchdown throughout the quarter. The Wolf Pack only managed to muster up one touchdown during that time, connecting on a five-yard pass from quarterback Tyler Lantrip to Mike Ball.
Thomas and Oregon are cruising right now. The team has already put up 41 points in the first half and has over 400 yards of offense (413 yards, to be exact). Today looks like a good day to be Ducks fan.
