Three different Ducks eclipsed the 100-yard mark: De’Anthony Thomas, Marcus Mariota and Byron Marshall. In all, the Ducks rushed for 500 yards and a robust 11.1 yards per carry against Nicholls State. It marked the first time in school history three players went for 100 yards in the same game. Yes, it was Nicholls State, but you have to figure rushing records are getting harder and harder to break at Oregon.
■ Ted Miller has a helmet sticker for Marcus Mariota.
Mariota rushed for 113 yards and two TDs on just five carries -- 22.6 per rush -- and passed for 234 yards and a score in the Ducks' 66-3 blowout win over Nicholls State.
■ Jason Quick reminds us not to make too much of De'Anthony's role based on the first game.
■ Thomas Tyner was held out of the first game due to his lack of practice time but will likely see the field against Virginia on Saturday.
■ Rob Moseley takes us behind the scenes of Mark Helfrich's head coaching debut.

Trying to build depth, cohesion and recognition in the linebacker corps, [Derrick] Malone's solid day shows one of Pellum's key pupils is getting it and responding when the scoreboard switches on. Tony Washington added 7 from the drop end/outside linebacker position, and true freshman Torrodney Prevot, playing in his first college game, had 5 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. That's a good day's work for a new player.
