Second Half Thread: Low Visibility, High-Flying Offense. Ducks 24 - Beavers 13

New, 471 comments

Sco fog!

NCAA Football: Oregon at Oregon State Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The #15 Oregon Ducks (3-0) lead the Oregon State Beavers (1-2) by a score of 24 to 13 in a very foggy game at Reser Stadium.

Tyler Shough and the Oregon offense are off to a strong start despite a low-level of visibility in Corvallis due to a heavy fog. Shough has scored a touchdown on the ground and through the air, however, an interception in the second quarter kept the young QB humble.

Devon Williams has already made a big impression on the game—racking up 93 yards and a touchdown on just three receptions—though Jermar Jefferson has kept this a competitive contest with an 82-yard early rushing touchdown to accompany his 149 first-half rushing yards.

SCO DUCKS!

Tyler Shough: 13/18 - 202 YDS - 1 TD - 1 INT - 4 Car - (-6) YDS - 1 RTD

Tristan Gebbia: 7/15 - 81 YDS

TD SCORERS: (UO) Jaylon Redd, Tyler Shough {2}, Devon Williams (OSU) Jermar Jefferson

DUCK YARDS: 299 yards - 202 passing - 97 rushing

TURNOVERS FORCED: Ducks: 0 - Beavers: 1 (1 INT)

1ST QUARTER NOTES

  • CJ Verdell picked up 16 yards on the first play of Oregon’s opening drive.
  • Johnny Johnson III is called for unsportsmanlike conduct after a nine-yard reception, setting up a 2nd-&-16.
  • A screen pass to Verdell converts on 3rd-&-long with a 14-yard gain.
  • Jaylon Redd scores on a 37-yard sweep in which the Beavers think he’s stepped out of bounds but are gravely mistaken.
  • Henry Katleman makes his first point-after.

Ducks 7 - Beavers 0

(8 plays, 77 yards, 3:08)

  • Beavers start at their own nine-yard line
  • Trevon Bradford gains nine yards on the Beavers’ first play from scrimmage.
  • Jermar Jefferson takes it to the house for a 91-yard touchdown run. (longest play from scrimmage by a Beaver against the Ducks in rivalry history.)

Beavers 7 - Ducks 7

(2 plays, 91 yards, :53)

  • Oregon starts at their own 14, but back-to-back passes to Redd pick up a quick 14 yards.
  • Shough connects with Devon Williams for a 20-yard gain on 2nd-&-2 to reach the Oregon State 44.
  • On the next play, Cyrus Habibi-Likio picks up 28 more yards on a screen.
  • After a defensive offside penalty on the Duck one-yard line, Shough walks into the end zone for the score.

Ducks 14 - Beavers 7

(11 plays, 86 yards, 5:38)

  • The Beavers are called for an offensive holding on first down. The loss of ten yards proves too much to overcome and the Beavs are forced into a three-&-out.
  • Shough just misses Williams for a 61-yard touchdown on the first play of Oregon’s next drive.
  • On 3rd-&-10, Shough is sacked by Andrzej Hughes-Murray for a 10-yard loss. Forcing a punt from midfield.

2ND QUARTER NOTES

  • A tackle-for-a-loss set up a 3rd-&-4 at the Oregon 16, but Verone McKinley III (who was nearly ejected on a potential targeting call moments before) made a play on the ball and forced an incompletion.
  • The Beavers were forced to settle for a 34-yard field goal off the foot of Caleb Lightbourn.

Ducks 14 - Beavers 10

(10 plays, 83 yards, 3:49)

  • Hunter Kampmoyer ignited the next Duck drive with a reception for 15 yards.
  • George Moore was called for illegal hands to the face, which put Oregon at an awkward 1st-&-25, but two plays later Shough found Williams for a 60-yard touchdown pass deep down the middle.

Ducks 21 - Beavers 10

(6 plays, 75 yards, 2:41)

  • The Duck defense had a shot at forcing another three-&-out, but Gebbia passed to Kolby Taylor to pick up nine yards and extend the drive on 3rd-&-5.
  • Later in the same drive, on 3rd-&-1, Jack Colletto entered the game and picked up three yards.
  • The Beavers reached the Oregon 30 with a 19-yard pass to Trevon Bradford on the next play.
  • Oregon State is again forced to settle for the field goal after three unsuccessful offensive plays.

Ducks 21 - Beavs 13

(11 plays, 45 yards, 5:02)

  • After traveling 15 yards in five plays, Shough is picked off by Jaydon Grant. The stadium is so full of fog that it’s near impossible to recognize the turnover on the television broadcast.
  • Facing another potential three-&-out, the Beavs elected to go for it on 4th-&-3 at their own 44-yard line. The pass to Champ Flemmings was well defended, resulting in a turnover on downs.
  • Shough completed a pass to Williams for a gain of 13 on first down, which was aided by a roughing the passer penalty called on Oregon State.
  • Travis Dye nearly threw an interception on a trick play.
  • On 4th-&-2 at the OSU 10, Cristobal elected to trust new starting place kicker Henry Katleman. After a penalty due to 12 Men on the Field set them further back, Katleman nailed his attempt from 33 yards out.
  • An 11-yard loss due to a Kayvon Thibodeaux sack effectively ended Oregon State’s final drive of the half.
