By Jerry Hinnen | Staff Writer

There were a lot of "Oh, wow!" moments in the first half of Oregon's ongoing bludgeoning of Colorado, some of them from the Ducks' brillance, some of them from the Buffs' ineptitude. A 56-0 halftime score will do that.

But this was the biggest one of all: De'Anthony Thomas trying to inject himself into the Heisman race with one of the season's craziest, most exciting punt returns:

Sure, it's coming against the worst BCS-level team in the country, but it's still not every day you see someone field a punt running back toward his own goal line at full speed some 15 yards from where the ball first bounced off the turf -- then score a touchdown.
