Civil War 2011, Oregon Vs. Oregon State Final Score: Ducks Win; Book Ticket To Pac-12 Championship

Oregon is one step closer to the Rose Bowl after locking up a berth in the Pac-12 Championship with a convincing 49-21 win over rival Oregon State in the Civil War. But the win came at a price: running back LaMichael James left with his elbow wrapped in ice. Earlier this season, James went down with a dislocated right elbow, and appeared to be in serious pain after landing awkwardly again.

Besides the injury, it was another day at the office for the Ducks, who seemed to struggle early before hitting the gas and leaving Oregon State in the dust. A 21-point outburst in the second quarter, part of 35 unanswered points, was all Oregon needed to lock up the Pac-12 North title and a date with UCLA in the title game.

James finished his day with 141 yards and a touchdown on the ground, with De'Anthony Thomas adding 82 yards and Kenjon Barner rushing for 64 yards and a touchdown. Darron Thomas threw for 294 yards and four touchdowns in the win.

Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion threw for yards and three touchdowns, but was also intercepted two times. The Oregon State running backs combined for just 27 yards on the ground, factoring in sacks.

Civil War 2011 Score: Oregon Burning Oregon State To The Ground

The Civil War has officially turned into a rout. In fact, Oregon is resembling William Sherman and Oregon State is looking a lot like Atlanta right now.

Early in the fourth quarter, Oregon has churned out 592 yards of total offense en route to a 42-7 lead. Darron Thomas is 25-of-38 for 294 yards and four touchdowns. LaMichael James, who left the game with an injury, already had 139 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries. De'Anthony Thomas has 82 on five carries, and Kenjon Barner's 16 attempts included a one-yard touchdown run.

For Oregon State, very little has gone right on offense. Sean Mannon is 16-of-31 passing for 157 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. The running game has managed 26 yards on 18 carries. The Beavers have eight first downs.

LaMichael James Injury, Again: Left Wrist The Apparent Culprit

Oregon Ducks running back LaMichael James is a robot of some sort. He's already suffered a separated elbow, which he's re-injured at least once, but just keeps coming back. This time, what looks to be a left arm injury kept the Ducks star downed for a moment against the Oregon St. Beavers.

He was able to walk off the field, albeit slowly. On the sideline, his left forearm was being wrapped in ice by team medical personnel. There's been no official word yet on the status or nature of his injury.

James, who's meant so much to Oregon and became the school's all-time leading scorer earlier in the evening, has proved himself capable of bouncing back from just about anything, but it's hard to imagine how much more damage that wing can take.

Oregon State Vs. Oregon Halftime Score: Ducks Extend Lead To 28-7

Oregon State rallied nicely from a bit of bad luck to start their game against the Oregon Ducks. After throwing an interception and giving up a touchdown, the Beavers responded with a second quarter touchdown - a 58 yard completion to Jovan Stevenson from Sean Mannion to tie the game at 7-7.

But Oregon would go on to take a commanding lead. Oregon scored on their following possession, when Darron Thomas hid David Paulson for a 16-yard touchdown to go up 14-7. The drive was saved on third down when De'Anthony Thomas rushed for 19 yards to set up the score. Oregon State quickly were forced to punt, and Oregon put together another scoring drive, this one ending with a Darron Thomas eight-yard pass to De'Anthony Thomas for a touchdown. 

The two teams would go on to exchange punts, and Oregon took over with 1:44 remaining in the half. Naturally, they drove down the field, on the back of four straight completions from Darron Thomas, one of them going for 31 yards to David Paulson. Thomas would hit Barner for a 16 yard touchdown as the clock wound down, putting the Ducks up 28-7 at the half.

Oregon Vs. Oregon State Score Update: LaMichael James Becomes Oregon's All-Time Leading Scorer

The Oregon Ducks got their game against the Oregon State Beavers started off the right way. After kicking off to start and giving up a couple short passes, to Terron Ward and Colby Prince, respectively, Michael Clay jumped in front of a Sean Mannion pass to pick him off at the Oregon State 38 yard line, gaining possession less than a minute into the game.

Taking over in Oregon State territory, Darron Thomas led the Ducks to the one-yard line, with completions of 10 and six yards. LaMichael James, who had three rushes of more than five yards on the short drive, scored from the one-yard line on first down to get the game's first touchdown. An Alejandro Maldonado extra point put Oregon up 7-0.

With the touchdown, James surpassed kicker Jard Siegel for first on the DUcks all-time scoring list. Kickers generally rank high on these lists, so passing him is a good milestone for James.
