After getting blown out for most of the evening in a shocker to some, the Oregon Ducks are making a late surge in the fourth quarter to try and fend off the Stanford upset.

A good bit of help for this came after Oregon scored to pull the score to 26-13. With time winding down, the onside kick was the only option, and that’s exactly what they did.

And, this happened:

 

After that, the Ducks were able to turn it into points as the offense drove the ball down the field and put it in the end zone with a Mariota touchdown pass, which then cut the score to 26-20.

Unfortunately, though, they just recently tried to recreate this magic and were unsuccessful this time.

With no timeouts left, time is ticking on the Ducks’ national hopes.
