Oregon Vs. UCLA, Pac-12 Championship Score: Ducks Fumbling, Bumbling Stumbling

If one were to judge how the Pac-12 Championship would turn out by looking at the first two games, or just taking a logical approach to the situation, it would've seemed like the Oregon Ducks were all set to win by about 50. After all, UCLA fumbled on its second play from scrimmage, leading to a quick Oregon score. All the signs of a rout were there.

Of course, the expected blowout may still happen, but UCLA is keeping things interesting thus far. Following LaMichael James' touchdown run, UCLA found some momentum in the form of a turnover. Of course, a fourth down stop by Oregon with the Bruins deep in enemy territory thwarted some of that momentum, but UCLA's defense came up big a short time later.

Darron Thomas tried to hit Kenjon Barner, but threw it behind the speedy running back on the next drive. The ball bounced up and into the hands of Patrick Larimore, who promptly tight-roped the sidelines and into the end zone to tie the game. And suddenly we had ourselves a ballgame.

And then Oregon quickly drove the length of the field for another touchdown while I was writing this. All is normal again and the Ducks lead 14-7.
