The Oregon Ducks beat the Washington Huskies for the ninth straight season behind four Marcus Mariota touchdown passes and five Husky turnovers.
After an early De'Anthony Thomas touchdown put Oregon up 7-0, the Ducks scored again behind a Marcus Mariota connection to Keanon Lowe for 21 yards, Mariota would distribute the wealth in this one, finding Colt Lyerla twice on 10 and 13 yard connections and Josh Huff for a 34 yard strike. Mariota threw four touchdowns and overcame an early interception, averaging eight yards per pass attempt and completing 62% of his passes.
The Oregon defense did their part too, forcing five Washington turnovers. Avery Patterson had an interception returned for a touchdown. Another Price fumble led to another Oregon touchdown that made it 35-7 at halftime. Oregon piled on nearly 300 rushing yards, with 122 from Kenjon Barner, 75 from Thomas, 59 from Byron Marshall and 40 from Mariota.
