Having seen the havoc wrought by the Oregon offense on opposing defenses--outscoring opponents 120-13 in two games so far--one would expect the Ducks to have no trouble putting up points on lowly-even-by-FCS-standards Portland State. And one would be correct.
After one quarter, Oregon has taken a 21-0 lead on the hapless Vikings, and all three of Oregon's touchdowns came in the first five minutes of the game. The man of the match thus far has been LaMichael James, who has rushed for 91 yards (including a 66-yard score) in the first frame. James has also lost a fumble, but that lone miscue probably won't factor meaningfully into the game. Darron Thomas has also added two touchdown strikes from the air. This one's got "laugher" written all over it.
