Rob: UO coach Chip Kelly said it "was a good Tuesday," with the usual schedule for that day of the week calling for three 11-on-11 team periods, red-zone work, third-down passing situations and special teams work along with positional drills.
The one alteration to the normal weekly practice schedule this week is that Oregon won't have a walk-through Thursday, but will hold another full-go, full-pads practice.
Lindsay: Junior safety Eddie Pleasant said that despite five days off, the Ducks haven't missed a beat with conditioning.
"This is the biggest game of our lives," Pleasant said. "Even though we went on vacation, we took it upon ourselves to run at home."
