Oregon Vs. Colorado Update: Bryan Bennett Likely Starter At QB For Ducks

The Oregon Ducks will be without starting quarterback Darron Thomas for Saturday's game against the Colorado Buffaloes. During 7-on-7 warmups, backup Bryan Bennett took all of the first-team snaps, reports Rob Moseley of the Register-Guard.

Thomas left last Saturday's game against Arizona State with a sprained knee. Bennett filled in for Thomas and went 2-of-5 for 22 yards. He also rushed  for 65 yards on five carries, including a 36-yard dash. He also saw playing time in blowout victories against the Nevada Wolf Pack and the Missouri St. Bears.

Bennett is a redshirt freshman and will be making his first career start. He faces a Colorado defense that is filled with holes and inexperience.
