The Oregon Ducks slowed up a little bit in the third quarter but still lead the Nevada Wolf Pack 55-13 after three quarters. The Ducks, who had four touchdowns in the second quarter, recorded two more in the third.
LaMichael James kicked things off with a 58-yard punt return less than two minutes into the period. The Wolf Pack slowed things down on the next possession by eating up five minutes of the quarter with a 13-play drive. Quarterback Tyler Lantrip found several receivers as he led his team down the field, and the drive was capped off by a one-yard rush by Stefphon Jefferson. Anthony Martinez missed the extra point in what has become a bad game for him. He is 0-1 for field goals and now 1-2 for extra points.
The Ducks were right back at it on the next drive and needed only three plays to score. After two rushes by De'Anthony Thomas that resulted in a net gain of three yards, quarterback Darron Thomas connected with the running back for a 69-yard touchdown.
Thomas now has 295 yards and six touchdowns on 13 of 19 passing. He has been on fire today and has the Ducks offense looking very good.
