    The Duck Report

    After trailing by as many as 28 points in the first quarter, Oregon rebounded to score 41 of the next 54 points to force overtime where they would get the better of Arizona State to pull out a 47-41 victory.

    Lamichael James ran for 159 yards and scored four touchdowns while quarterback Darron Thomas threw for 116 yards and ran for 77 more and combining to score two touchdowns. Ryan Perrkins also ran for 57 yards.

    The few bright spots for a horrible Duck defense was Matt Simms' three sacks.

    Before the Oregon offense was even able to get its first, first down of the game Arizona State had jumped out to a 28-0 lead and looked like it would run away with the game.

    However, an Oregon kick return toucdown followed by James' first score of the night gave Oregon life at 28-14 in the second quarter. Both teams would score one more time before halftime to make the score 35-21.

    Oregon scored back-to-back touchdowns, but missed the extra point on the second score and trailed by one (35-34) heading into the fourth quarter. Lucky for the Ducks, Arizona would miss its extra point on their next score and were only up by 7 (41-34) with two minutes to play in the game.

    The Ducks were able to march down the field and James would score for the third time of the day to send the game into overtime where the Ducks would win the coin toss and choose to play defense first. Arizona State was kept in check and missed its field goal, allowing the Ducks to have the chance to win the game with a field goal. But Oregon had no need for a kicker as the Ducks scored a touchdown after four consecutive runs.

    The Oregon Ducks said its game vs. rival Washington was a statement game; with the statement being "we won't quit". With its Pac 10 Championship hopes all but goine, Oregon still showed up to put on a strong performance in its beating of the Huskies in front of several key prospects that Ducks are looking to land for next season.

    Senior running back LeMichael James had 92 yards rushing before being forced out of the game due to injury. WIth James hurt, a trio of running backs picked up the slack rushing the ball as did QB Deron Thomas who ran the zone read to perfection on the Ducks was to 51 points.

    The Washington offense was no match for the Oregon defense who would have no trouble controling the option attack. In the end Oregon set a season-high for team tackles for a loss.

    Good game. Maybe Tech should try the option to spark the running game.

    Ducks Make Dramatic Stand To Beat Stanford 35-28

    The Oregon Ducks continued its recent success with another win, this time beating Stanford 35-28 thanks to a game-saving tackle from senior Kikio Alonso with less than a minute to play.

    The Ducks came out hitting on all levels early when QB Darron Thomas found G. Embrey for a 21-yard touchdown pass. However, Stanford rebounded with 14 straight points off of a lethal running game.

    The Oregon comeback began in the second quarter when Thomas threw for one touchdown and ran for another to give Oregon a 21-14 lead with just 12 seconds left in the half. Stanford would respond with 75 yard touchdown run to end the half and damper the home crowds mood as the score was now tied at 21-21.

    After trading punts, Oregon went on top once again (28-21) LeMichael James ran for his first of two touchdowns on the day from three yards out.

    Now in the fourth quarter with the score tied at 28-28 James once again found the endzone with 3:04 left to play to give the Ducks a 35-28 lead. Both defenses would step for the remainder of the game with the highlight being a fourth down stop by Oregon's defense with just 38 seconds left to give the Ducks the win.

    Thomas finished the game with 169 yards passing and and 68 more rushing while James carried the rock 26 times for 96 yards and two scores.

    Alonso led the defense with 6 TFL. Also, prior to the game Oregon got great news for next season when five recruits decided to sign their letters of intent to play with the Ducks for the next four years.

    Ducks Beat By Trojans 35-21

    The Oregon Ducks kept pace with the No. 3 team in the country for three quarters, but in the end the USC running game proved to be too much for the Ducks to stop as the Trojans went on to hand the Ducks their fourth loss of the year 35-21.

    After the game, Oregon's coach said that the game plan going in was to try to keep the ball away from the dangerous USC offense and keep the passing game in check. While the Ducks were able to put together some quality drives, they were stopped too many times by a USC defense that allowed next to nothing on the ground and had a key interception when Oregon was in the redzone.

    The Ducks managed to tie the game up at 21-21 in the third quarter, but would give up 14 consecutive points to USC to end the game.

    D. Thomas was 17-25 for 217 yards but threw 2 picks and no touchdowns. The big play threat that is LeMichael James ran for just 62 yards on 18 carries.

    "We don't do moral victories here," Coach McIntosh said. "I don't care that played a very good team tough for four quarters. The fact remains that they won we lost and Joe McNight is probably still running up and down the field as we speak."

    Ducks Win Civil War

    The annual Oregon-Oregon State “Civil War” more than lived up to past editions of the instate rivalry. While the Ducks finished the game with a lopsided victory of 49-19, the game as they say was much closer than the final score would indicate.

    After an early touchdown by Ducks, the defense proceeded to fly around the ball and lay punishing hits on the Beavers so much so that star running back J. Rogers was forced to leave the game due to an injury.

    The Ducks offense would continue to enjoy success until junior quarterback Daron Thomas was sacked. Thomas remained on the ground long after the play had ended and would also be forced to leave the game. Thomas will miss the next four weeks.

    With its offense on its heals after losing its leader, the Oregon defense picked up the heat even more, finishing with seven sacks to help keep the OSU offense in check on their way to the big win.

    Oregon - 24
    Illinoi - 14

    My backup QB is not ready for primetime quite yet, but LeMichael ran the ball 32 times for over 115 yards to help me get the victory. Three Illini INT's didn't hurt either.

    Las Vegas Bowl
    Oregon - 26
    Air Force - 12

    Oregon ended the year on a high note by defeating Air Force 26-12 in the Las Vegas Bowl. The Duck defense led the way by holding Air Force on third downs (2-for-13).

    The first quarter was highlighted by a 72-yard touchdown run by Clark for Air Force. Air Force kept its lead through much of the first half as Oregon's offense didn't start to click until late in the second when LeMichael James capped off a nine-play drive with a touchdown to put Oregon up 7-6. However, Air Force answered with a field goal to end the half up 9-7.

    Two thrid quarter touchdown passes by D. Hawkins, one rushing and one throwing, gave Oregon a 20-9 edge that they would later enhance with two fourth quarter field goals as they went on to shut the Air Force offense down and win 26-12.

    James rushed for 143 yards on 28 attempts and Hawkins, filling in for the injured Daron Thomas, threw for 158 yards and a touchdown.

    2012 Week 2

    Oregon - 24
    Arizona St. - 16

    For the second consecutive year the Arizona State run defense gave Oregon fits, but the Ducks were once again able to comeback from a double-digit deficit to defeat ASU.
    The Sun Devils scored the game's first 10 points before the Duck defense righted itself and senior running back LeMichael James came alive.

    James finished the game with 146 yards rushing and two scores while quarterback Darron Thomas also had another touchdow. The Duck defense was led by freshman end Darrell Wilson who had a multi-sack day.

    Oregon - 38
    Stanford - 37

    A week after missing two field goals in the fourth quarter in a loss to Miami, Oregon's kicker won back a few fans by making a field goal with 30 seconds left in regulation to end Stanford's upset bid and give the Ducks a 38-37 win.

    Oregon could not stop Stanford's running game, but thanks to freshman defensive end Darrell Wilson, who had a school-record five sacks, the Cardinal passing attack was nonexsistant.

    Leading the Ducks offense was senior running back LaMichael James who ran for 134 yards and two scores.

    Oregon - 52
    Washington - 35

    The Washington Huskies gave the Oregon defense a scare but the Ducks defense was more than up to the challenge thanks to a career game from senior QB Darron Thomas.

    Thomas threw for 280 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 43 yards in the victory. Junior wide out Diante Jackson had 4 receptions for 54 yards and a score, but it was his play on special teams that stood out as the speedy Jackson had over 200 kick return yards and two scores.

    Not to be out done, M. Gaines, the other starting WR, had 8 grabs for 133 yards while senior running back LaMichael James ran for 153 yards and a touchdown. James is second in the NCAA in rushing yards.

    Oregon -- 49
    Cal -- 35

    The Oregon defense really let coach tmac down, but the Duck offense was up for another big game with Darron Thomas leading the way by throwing for two scores and 255 yards. The dangerous duo of Jackson and Gaines combined for seven grabs, 191 yards and two touchdowns while Jackson had another kickoff return for a touchdown.

    LaMichael James ran for 122 yards and two more scores in what is shaping up to be a career-year for the senior. Despite sleepwalking through most of the game, Oregon's defense racked up four sacks and two picks in the fourth to help clinch the win.

    Oregon - 35
    Arizona - 21

    While the Oregon offense looked sloppy at times, the Ducks had a rather easy time with the No. 22 Wildcats as Oregon won on the road 35-21. The story of the game was the Oregon defensive end Dan Wilson who set a school record with five sacks. The freshman has 14 on the season.

    LaMichael James continued his senior season with 131 yards on 29 carries with one touchdown while fellow senior Darron Thomas threw for three scores and 253 yards.

    Oregon 37
    Washington State 28

    A game that started out looking like it would be a blow out everyone thought it would be turned into a close game. After Oregon scored 14 consecutive points to start the game, Washington came fighting back thanks to a fumble recovery that led to their first score of the night. Another long run later in the second quarter would help WSU tie the game at 14-14.

    However, Oregon would get back on track thanks to another solid day rushing from James, who broke the Oregon career rushing record this week, and a monster passing game (by my standards) from Thomas to outscore WSU 23-14 the rest of the game to hold onto the win.

    Also, my freshman DE broke the school record for sacks in a year with his 15th QB takedown of the season
