Oregon 34, Washington 17 -- Final

Fourth quarter

Washington couldn't do much in the fourth quarter, a costly fumble by Michael Hartvigson cost them a lot of game lock.

Third quarter

1:49 -- UW goes for it on fourth down and 4 and doesn't get it, giving it back to Oregon. But the Husky defense gets a stop sort of, Oregon again marches down the field with ease. But the Huskies get a little tough in the red zone and Oregon is forced to kick. Alenjandro Maldonado booted a 35 yard FG. Oregon leads 34-17

6:05 -- Well, that was fast. Oregon answers Washington's drive and does much faster, needing just six plays. The killer was a 34-yard pass over the middle to David Paulson on third down and nine. It set up De'Anthony Thomas' 9 yard TD run. Oregon leads 34-17

8:33 -- The Huskies answer with a big drive of their own. Bishop Sankey had a big 19 yard run and Chris Polk was Chris Polk, but Keith Price hit Kasen Williams on 10-yard touchdown pass. The true freshman made a ridiculous catch in the end zone for the score. Oregon leads 24-17.

12:23 -- The Ducks go 90 yards in 12 plays in just 2:35. Their first four plays went for four first downs. Kenjon Barner, who'd been quiet in the first half, plunges in from 1 yard out. Ducks lead 24-10

Second quarter

:01 -- Alejandro Maldonado shanks a 45-yard FG attempt after Sark called three straight timeouts to ice him.

:30 -- The Huskies get a much-needed touchdown, thanks to a healthy dose of Chris Polk, who carried the ball six times on the 12 play drive. But it was Keith Price, who hit Michael Hartvigson on a 1-yard TD pass just before the half. Price apparently got  in on the play before. Replays showed that he got in. The play was reviewed, and the call was upheld.  But Price coolly hit his big tight end on  the next play. Oregon leads 17-10

10:10 -- Keith Price's second interception of the game - again to Eddie Pleasant - killed a solid drive the Huskies were putting together. Pleasant returned it to the Husky 34-yard line. Oregon needed just four plays as Darron Thomas hit David Paulson for a 4-yard TD pass. Oregon leads 17-3.

First quarter

6:06 -- A 69-yard De'Anthony Thomas kick return gave Oregon great field position. But the Huskies defense holds sort of. The declined a holding penalty on third down and let the Ducks settle for a 40 yard field goal from Alenjandro Maldonado. Ducks lead 10-3

7:17 -- Washington capitalizes on a Darron Thomas half pass, half fumble. The Huskies get the ball at the 32 yard line after Andrew Hudson jumped on the loose ball. UW got it to the 25, but was sacked two plays later and Washington had to settle for a 42 yard field goal from Erik Folk.  Oregon leads 7-3

11:46 -- Keith Price was picked off on an overthrow of Jermaine Kearse by Eddie Pleasant, giving the Ducks outstanding field position on the Washington 38-yard line. The Ducks needed just three plays to get in the end zone as LaMichael James sprinted in from 18 yards out.
