EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — For his first outing of the season, Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert had six touchdowns — five via pass and one on the ground. There's a possibility that against Portland State on Saturday he won't be in the game long enough to get as many.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — With Justin Herbert already set as Oregon's starting quarterback, some of the focus at the Ducks' spring game was on other positions.
Like his backup. And his receivers.
The spring game was split into two sides, Team Thunder on the offense and Team Lightning on the defense. Points were awarded for different tasks, like touchdowns, and the Thunder came out on top 59-34.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — While Justin Herbert's appearance in pads at practice this week was tantalizing, a more pressing matter for Oregon was preparing for Utah.
Herbert started the season at quarterback for the Ducks but fractured his collarbone in a 45-24 victory over California on Sept. 30. Oregon (4-4, 1-4 Pac-12) has lost three straight without him.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Eleventh-ranked Washington State can add a road win to this season's resume, finally.
Luke Falk threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns and the Cougars held Oregon scoreless after the first quarter for a 33-10 victory Saturday night at Autzen Stadium.
The Cougars (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12) were on their first trip after quirky scheduling gave them their opening five games in Pullman. The team is off to its best start since winning seven to start the 2001 season.
