Oregon 42 -Oklahoma St. 31
Here is the ESPN highlight video, I will make my own tomorrow in between bowl games.
What a second half show the Ducks put on for us. Jeremiah Masoli was a beast, as he ran for three TD's and passed for one. He ran over, through and around the OSU defense, almost at will. And speaking of defense, who showed up last night and answered the critics? How many crucial stops did Oregon have?
It was nice to see Jaison Williams haul in that TD pass late in the game, JJ bust one loose for 76 yards in the first half, and LeGarrette Blount running in (high hurdles anyone?) the game winner. Blount also hit the 1000 yard mark for the season, joining JJ in that category.
Walter Thurmond III had quite a game also. Running back the kickoff to open the second half, 91 yards and set up the first of five TD's. He also had an interception that made the highlight reel. I could go on and on about the big plays and big hits but I need to get ready for work. I will have more to say in the next few days but for now, thanks for the fantastic season Oregon and I can't wait for 2009.
