Oregon Vs. Colorado Final Score: Ducks Give Up A Safety, Still Win Big

The Oregon Ducks scored the first 45 points of the game and let off the accelerating, narrowly missing the shutout in a 45-2 win over Colorado on Saturday. Colorado scored its only points of the game on a miscue by Oregon punt-returner Cliff Harris, who gave up a safety late in the third quarter. In other words, this was about the matchup we expected.

Oregon hung 29 on the Buffaloes in the first quarter, with Kenjon Barner scoring twice and De'Anthony Thomas taking another on in for the score. LaMichael James and Darron Thomas each sat Saturday's game out, though both were dressed and went through warmups. Bryan Bennett threw for 162 yards and two touchdowns while also running for 69 yards in place of Thomas.

Nick Hirschman and Tyler Hansen combined for 133 yards and an interception for the Buffaloes. The ground game wasn't much better as Tony Jones rushed for 71 of the Buffs' 98 yards.
