The Pac-12 may be in Upheaval but one thing hasn’t changed. Oregon still rules. Aside from the curious loss to Arizona, the Ducks low scoring effort of the season is 38 points. The Ducks are 5th in the Nation in total offense and may just be hitting their stride. They are on a streak of 40+ point games that includes the likes of UCLA, Washington, Cal (ok, maybe that one isn’t that impressive) and Stanford. <p>The 45 points they just put on Stanford is the most the Cardinal has surrendered in a non-OT game since 2011. Oregon’s rushing attack is as robust as ever with Freshman tailback Royce Freeman powering his way to 5.5 yards per carry and Marcus Mariota averaging nearly 6 yards per rush.</p> <p>Oh, and when the Ducks decide to pass, Marcus Mariota is averaging 10 yards per attempt. So there’s that.</p> <p>Oregon’s remaining schedule is pretty smooth. The trip to Utah this weekend may rough the Ducks up a bit, but the fact is Oregon scores more points getting off the bus than Utah probably manages in 7 on 7 drills.</p> <p>After Utah the Ducks have Colorado at home and a Civil War date against an OSU team that simply hasn’t been as good as advertised.</p> <p>Now that Oregon is in the CFB Playoff top 4 (and many of the SEC’s best teams will yet beat each other up) all the Ducks need to do is hold the course and they’ll be representing the Pac in the first College Football Playoff.</p>. 8-1 (5-1).
