The Oregon Ducks are going for the points early against the Colorado Buffaloes. On the first drive of the game, the Ducks picked up a touchdown and then went for the two-point conversion, which was successful. Bryan Bennett did start at quarterback for the Ducks and he had a 43-yard run that eventually wound up at Colorado's 12-yard run due to a late hit on the sidelines by Kyle Washington. Kenjon Barner punched the ball in a couple of plays later.
The Buffs' first drive was hurt by a sack and two offside penalties. Colorado punted from its five-yard line, giving the Ducks excellent field position. Bryan Bennett eventually found De'Anthony Thomas for a 14-yard touchdown pass and the 15-0 lead.
The Buffs defense, depleted and inexperienced, is in for a long day.
