No. 2 Oregon had little trouble with a good Washington team, easily dispatching of the Huskies, 45-24, on the road in Seattle.
Byron Marshall started the scoring with a one-yard run for Oregon in the first, but Keith Price found Austin Seferian-Jenkins for a score to tie it up before the end of the quarter. The Ducks scored twice in the second quarter on a Marcus Mariota pass and a Marshall run, giving them a 21-7 lead heading into halftime.
Washington actually outscored the Ducks in the third quarter thanks to two Bishop Sankey touchdown runs, but Mariota put two more touchdowns in the books for the Ducks in the final period to lead the team to the win.
David Piper of Addicted to Quack pointed to the strong performance of Oregon's quarterback as the reason the Ducks were able to pull away.
Marcus Mariota had another stellar game, throwing for 366 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 88 yards and another score, and he has to be firmly in the Heisman race at this point.
Chris Landon of UW Dawg Pound said that while the Huskies lost, running back Bishop Sankey continues to impress and could be the best running back in the conference.
The next best player on the field was Bishop Sankey who put up over 200 yards of total offense and two TD of his own was a beast again. Bishop has now faced the two best defenses in the Pac 12 - and I mean by a LARGE margin - and demonstrated that he is without a doubt the best RB in the conference.
