Oregon Vs. Arizona State Final Score: Ducks Pull Away For 41-27 Win, But Lose Darron Thomas

The Oregon Ducks limped away from Saturday's matchup with the Arizona State Sun Devils looking worse for wear physically, despite a 41-27 win. In the process, though, Oregon lost Darron Thomas to what's being called a "tweaked knee," with his status for next week unclear. Kenjon Barner and Eddie Pleasant also limped off, though the former returned.

Oregon headed into the half with a narrow, 21-17 lead at the half, thanks to Thomas' late touchdown pass to David Paulson. Arizona State scored early in the second to reclaim the lead, only to see the Ducks hit the afterburners and pull away with 14-straight points.

Kenjon Barner rushed for a touchdown and explosive freshman DeAnthony Thomas rushed for two, continuing to show why he was one of the most highly-touted recruits in the country. Cameron Marshal rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown to lead the way for the Sun Devils.

Thomas threw for 187 yards, two touchdowns and an interceptions for the Ducks while Brock Osweiler threw for 292 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions for Arizona State.

Darron Thomas Injury: Oregon QB Sidelined With Leg Injury

The Oregon Ducks took a lead over Arizona State before the half, but in the second half had their offense take another big hit. After losing LaMichael James to an elbow injury a week ago, quarterback Darron Thomas left the game with a lower left leg injury. Thomas was running with the ball when an Arizona State defender came down awkwardly on his leg.

Thomas stayed on the ground for a bit then limped his way to the sideline. After being evaluated on the sideline on the trainers table, Thomas limped to the locker room to get his leg looked at further. Oregon back up quarterback Bryan Bennett will now try to lead the Ducks back, as the Sun Devils just took the lead 24-21 on an Alex Garoutte touchdown.

Arizona State Vs. Oregon: Ducks Take Late 21-17 Lead Into Half

After a furious first quarter that saw 21 points put on the board, both offenses have began to slow down. Sun Devils quarterback Brock Osweiler ended a strong half with an interception in the endzone to give Oregon a drive to take the lead 21-17.

Oregon's offense had been stagnant much of the first half, scoring thanks to untimely Arizona State penalties to keep drives alive, but went right down the field after the Cliff Harris interception. It took the Ducks three plays on three Darron Thomas passes, capped off by a 12-yard touchdown pass to David Paulson for the go ahead score.

Arizona State's offense has been able to move the football, but they'll need to get their running game going to be able to run the clock on Oregon's offense.

Arizona State Vs. Oregon Score Update: Sun Devils Take Early 14-7 Lead

Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler is on fire in the first quarter, already completing 10 of 12 passes for over 100 yards and two touchdowns, including a great pass down the field to wide receiver Mike Willie 25 yards to the endzone. Earlier in the game, Osweiler hit Gerelle Robinson for a 20 yard touchdown pass.

Oregon's offense is moving the football, but an early fumble led to Arizona State points. Without LaMichael James, freshman De'Anthony Thomas and quarterback Darron Thomas will have to carry the Ducks offense. Early on, Thomas is a perfect 4 for 4 for 40 yards. Oregon just attempted a fake punt on fourth down, but Arizona State was able to shut the play down.

LaMichael James Injury: Oregon Running Back Listed Atop Depth Chart

Despite suffering a dislocated shoulder last week, and hints that he wouldn't go this weekend, there remains a possibility that LaMichael James could be on the field as the Oregon Ducks face the Arizona State Sun Devils on Saturday night. James left the Ducks' Thursday night matchup after a gruesome elbow injury near the goalline.

Following the game, though, James was adamant he'd be fine, telling reporters he'd suffered the same injury in high school and played the next week. And as reporters entered the press box at Autzen Stadium, there was James' name atop the depth chart.

UO two-deep distributed in the press box lists LaMichael James "or" Kenjon Barner starting at running back against ASU.

Remember this is Chip Kelly and he keeps things close to the vest. All week the Ducks have hinted James was out, but now it seems there's a chance. We'll find out more in a few hours as the Ducks and Sun Devils battle under the lights in Eugene.
