It wasn't pretty DT, but you got it done in the end.
DT had his worst game of the season, but the Ducks overcame, using a strong performance by the defense and special teams to get to 10-0.
- Though Oregon is sitting at #1 in the BCS rankings and their next two opponents are reeling after consecutive defeats, Oregon can't afford to rest. If the game at Cal showed anything, it's that if Oregon doesn't come out focused and motivated, they won't be able to move the ball. The good news is that I don't think that Cal's "blueprint" is a danger. The errors the Ducks made were fixable, and I'm optimistic that few teams will be able to play at that level, and the coaching staff is optimistic as well. The Ducks now have 11 days to rest up and prepare for the Wildcats, and hopefully send off the seniors in winning style.
- John Hunt has all your BCS info, as well a bunch of quotes from Chip Kelly on the success of the defenses in the game against Cal.
- Matt Hinton has a post on Oregon's close victory, and compares it to other close calls by other championship teams. Oregon came through on the road when it wasn't playing at it's best, and that might just show more about this team than any 50-point victory ever will.
- Oregon basketball started off the weekend strong, and capping off the weekend with a 72-70 win against UC Santa Barbara. It wasn't pretty, but the Ducks got it done, and there seems to be a bit of excitement for the Dana Altman era. Screens! Give and gos! Fundamental basketball! For more basketball, scroll down a bit and check out Dave and Dominic's many posts from over the weekend.
- The Oregon women also started the season out with a win, breaking the 100-mark and notching a 40 point victory against Western Oregon.
- Looking for some bowl tickets? Sounds like it's gonna be rough. With prices high, and supply low, BCS Championship game tickets are gonna be hard to come by. Well, unless you're Phil Knight.
Got any other quack to share? Leave it below. After the jump, we have a bunch of interviews with coaches and players after the Cal game. GO DUCKS!
