Ducks Decade Dynasty

Dubs

The Ducks-Huskies game created quite a frenzy building up to the game with ESPN’s College Gameday appearing on campus before the game. It was being billed as the game of the year for the Dawgs, who kept things close for 3+ quarters before the Ducks put their foot on the gas and pulled away to secure a 45-24 victory.┬áMarcus Mariota looked like a probable Heisman Trophy candidate throwing for 3 touchdowns and rushing for another. This victory also marked the 10th straight victory over the Huskies for Oregon.
