Civil War Game 2010: Oregon 37, Oregon State 20, Ducks Headed For Championship

The top-ranked Oregon Ducks have finished with a perfect season in 2010, and they owe much of it to their dominant running game. LaMichael James, Kenjon Barner and company helped to secure a 37-13 win over rival Oregon State in the 2010 Civil War game.

On Saturday, the Ducks pounded out an amazing 348 yards on the ground, averaging 7.1 yards per carry. LaMichael James finished with 134 rushing yards, and Kenjon Barner, who averaged 8.9 on the ground, added 133. Though Oregon's passing played second fiddle, quarterback Darron Thomas was effective, completing 14 of 24 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns.

Oregon State's Ryan Katz was the top passer of the day, throwing for 227 yards and two touchdowns. He suffered two tough interceptions, but he played admirably considering a brutal hit on the game's opening drive that briefly forced him out of the game. Running back Jacquizz Rogers ran the ball 22 times for 87 yards.

As time expired, chants of "BCS" echoed through the Corvallis crowd. Oregon is undefeated for the first time in its history, and the likely BCS championship with Auburn is, to say the least, something to look forward to.

Oregon Vs. Oregon State, Halftime Update: No. 1 Ducks Lead Miscue-Filled Civil War, 16-7

It's halftime in Corvallis, and despite a number of mistakes, top-ranked Oregon carries a 16-7 lead over arch-rival Oregon State into halftime. The difference so far has been the Ducks' formidable running game.

Kenjon Barner already has 85 yards in only 10 carries, and LaMichael James has contributed 84 more. In total, the Ducks have 186 yards and a touchdown on the ground. However, a Josh Huff fumble in the first quarter took the ball out of Oregon's hands in Beaver territory.

The Ducks missed another opportunity to score as time expired in the second quarter, and in somewhat strange fashion. Oregon was in position to end the half with a 25-yard chip-shot field goal, but they let the play clock run all the way down rather than call a timeout. Oregon State, perhaps knowing something we don't, decided to decline the penalty. The Ducks' kicker, Rob Beard, then missed the field goal, kicking it just barely wide right.

As such, Oregon leads Oregon State by two scores. The Ducks are set to receive the ball to open the second half.
