Later this afternoon, the Oregon Ducks will continue their march toward a national championship game appearance when they take the field against the Colorado Buffaloes on the road in Boulder.
As has been the usual case, even under new head coach Mark Helfrich, the Ducks are utilizing that fast-paced, read-option offense to near perfection as they’ve steamrolled their competition thus far, and the Buffs later on today should be no different.
Putting aside the rushing talents of quarterback, and Heisman hopeful, Marcus Mariota, the Ducks’ running back duo of De’Anthony Thomas and Byron Marshall have more than done their part. Each has just a little over 300 yards on the ground, with Thomas accounting for six touchdowns and Marshall for four.
A lot of that credit can certainly be attributed to Oregon running backs coach, Gary Campbell, who has obviously done a wonderful job getting his men prepared.
It also seems that he’s very good at putting together quite the pregame attire, as we learned as he took a stroll around the stadium in Boulder before this afternoon’s action:

The Oregon player’s aren’t the only ones that get to look dapper on a football field.
