OR starts fast, hangs on to outlast Nebraska

  • Oregon's Kani Benoit rushes for yardage against Nebraska during the third quarter of an NCAA college football game Saturday Sept. 9 2017 in Eugene Ore

Nebraska brought their fans and about an eighth of the Stadium was Red.

Oregon's defense, which experienced the meltdown against TCU in the Alamo Bowl two seasons ago and finished 126th in points and yards allowed during a 4-8 finish last season, prevented Mike Riley from staging a Hollywood ending to his homecoming story. "I'm not that fired up about all the ticket requests I've got coming, but that's all right". It's pretty neat. I embrace these moments personally. "I didn't say it to the ref, I just said it was BS".

Nebraska dropped to 1-1 on the season while OR rose to 2-0.

One of those quality opponents comes to town on Saturday when the Ducks host Nebraska. Pettis set the Pac-12 career record, taking a punt back for a score for the second straight game to break a tie with Cal's DeSean Jackson. In previous years, less quarterback and more running back. "I think that's why he was a great player, he took pride in it every single day". "We've done a lot of silent cadence stuff because we have to be really well-prepared because that can mess up a game". It was Oregon's most points in a single game since 1916.

Herbert completed an eye-popping 21 of 25 passes and also threw three touchdowns. The programs have played seven times, with Nebraska winning six. "I can't believe it". Locals in Laramie are calling the OR game the most important one in Wyoming history (kind of like Nebraska was for Eugene), so Taggart and his band of Ducks will face a hostile environment that could narrow the talent gap that might divide the two teams now.

Nebraska CornHuskers will travel to OR this weekend for their second game of the 2017 season on Saturday against the Ducks. "It will be a loud experience, but we'll be ready for it".

Liverpool have opened talks with Arsenal over a deal for midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. I'm here with England and we've got two big games coming up, so I want to focus on them.

Defensively Nebraska is going to have to play considerably better in the secondary, if they give up that kind of yardage to OR it's going to be a long day. As a unit, they functioned real well and reminded me of OR defenses of the past when they were a 3-4 team when Chip was here. "There is no guarantee, but it's a better transition than playing against the 4-3 all the time and then going a week getting ready for a 3-4".

Defensive coordinator Bob Diaco has faced new OR coach Willie Taggart without much success, too. The former South Florida Bulls head coach replaces Mark Helfrich after a disastrous sub-.500 2016 season in Eugene.

Diaco's debut with the Cornhuskers caused some concerns.

The Huskers opened their season with a 43-36 victory over a game Arkansas State last Saturday at Memorial Stadium. If we don't get them, it's hard to win a ballgame. "We've got to be better".

Freeman and offensive tackle Tyrell Crosby were both injured early in last year's loss at Nebraska, and quarterback Justin Herbert stayed on the bench behind Dakota Prukop.

"You know really, really disappointing start to the game", Riley said. "They do play some four-down looks and change it up nicely". In some fashion probably a continuation of some of the stuff he has done in his past, so they were hitting on all cylinders the other night. "Lots of yardage and lots of points".
