Oregon wins it 48-24.

Too many turnovers by the Beavers; too much Oregon Ducks in the third quarter.

Ducks' running game returns, and then some. Oregon got a big game from RB Kenjon Barner in the first half, and when he went down with an injury, De'Anthony Thomas took over in the second half. Add to those two great running backs the play of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.

Is it my imagination, or is Mariota getting faster?

The Beavers made a game of it in the first half. OSU came to play and it appeared that the Ducks were in for it early on. But Oregon took over the line of scrimmage early in the third quarter, and then—as they have done so often this season—simply wore the Beavers down.

Make it five straight for the Ducks.

There's always next year, Beavs.
