The Oregon Ducks looked to be one of the hottest teams in college football earlier this season, raising up to No. 2 in the polls and boasting a quarterback many thought could have been the No. 1 overall pick had he decided to not return to school next season. But the season fell apart a little for the Ducks, something that didn’t keep them out of an interesting bowl game though.
Oregon is in a brutal fight with the Texas Longhorns in the Alamo Bowl, and the high powered offense has been stunted a bit by Mack Brown’s unit. It may be the Mack Brown farewell game but that doesn’t mean Marcu Mariota isn’t doing his Superman thing at times on the field.
The bright and shining quarterback God Mariota was earlier in the year made an appearance on the Duck’s last drive before halftime that resulted in a lead changing touchdown. Mariota’s read-option scramble helped set up an Oregon touchdown run a minute later.
The season hasn’t been what the Ducks wanted it to be but that doesn’t mean their final game of 2013 hasn’t been full of vintage Oregon football.
