Oregon Mauls Washington Again

Oregon's Byron Marshall celebrates with teammates after scoring on a 15-yard run against Washington.

Ohio State still needs Oregon to lose somewhere if it is going to beat Stanford in its highly anticipated matchup at Stanford in November. The opposite could happen, and Stanford, right now, is struggling with Utah, but an Oregon loss tonight would have helped. It did not happen.

There were questionable calls on Oregon's behalf this game, as the Pac-12 works hard to develop a reputation of having officials as competent as WWE on-screen officials and referees. Nonetheless, Oregon was clearly the better team.

Quarterback and Heisman candidate, Marcus Mariota, was almost perfect. He was 24/31 throwing for 366 yards and 3 touchdowns to zero interceptions. He also had 13 carries for 88 yards and a rushing touchdown. Oregon had 631 yards of offense for the day.

it will be interesting to see how far washington falls. they should fall into the 23-25 range at least but the pollsters will keep them at no worse than 20.

I'm interested to see how the voters handle the Huskies and the Dawgs. Have to figure NW is out of the rankings, but the Huskers and/or the Spartans ought to make an appearance, right?
Also, how far to the Gators fall? Can they stay in the rankings at 4-2 when there are so many undefeated and 1-loss teams still in the mix? No way they should hang in there above Wisconsin, let alone two 5-1 B1G squads.

Ohio State, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Michigan State and Michigan ( if they hold on) might all be ranked. Scheduler did Northwestern no favors that's for sure.

gators have to fall out of top 25. their offense is pretty average to bad and their defense gets exposed by good quarterbacks.

Mariota might be the best QB in college football
