Offense Comes Alive in Scrimmage

Oregon’s offense ran for two touchdowns and threw for two others, as the unit finally began to look comfortable under new coordinator Chip Kelly.

Dennis Dixon completed a five-yard scoring pass to Jaison Williams on the first possession for the first string. Brian Paysinger took a pitch and ran 41 yards for a touchdown, Andiel Brown ran for a 29-yard score and Nathan Costa threw a pretty 25-yard touchdown pass to Rory Cavaille.

Oregon’s defense was slow early on but rallied late, keeping the offense off the scoreboard for three straight attempts at two-point conversions. Reserve end Brandon Bair led the unit with seven tackles, his second straight solid scrimmage.

Punter Josh Syria also had a strong day.

You can go to the annual Spring Scrimmage game this Saturday at 2:00pm for free. Just show up at Autzen with 3 cans of food that will be donated to Food for Lane County.
