Oregon Vs. Colorado Score: Even Without Thomas or James, Ducks Cruising

No Darron Thomas, no LaMichael James, no problem. Despite being without its starting quarterback and starting running back, Oregon has scored on its first four drives to ring up a 29-0 lead against Colorado in the first quarter.

Bryan Bennett, filling in for Thomas at quarterback, is 5-of-8 for 87 yards and two touchdowns and also has a 43-yard run. Kenjon Barner has run for 99 yards and two touchdowns -- on six carries. In all, the Ducks have piled up 293 yards of total offense, to 25 for Colorado -- that's more than ten times as much, for those of you who are keeping score.

Oh, and Oregon has already done the obligatory two-point conversion off of its odd point-after alignment. You may now pay attention to another game and just check the final score on this one.
