Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
■ ESPN recaps the highlights as Oregon takes down Washington St. 62-38 despite the onslaught of pass attempts by Connor Halliday.
■ I was sorry to see the two turnovers by Marcus Mariota but liked how the Ducks responded in the second half as Oregon just keeps rolling.
■ Time for the multitude of stories from last nights action so let's get started: Jason Quick calls Byron Marshall a key contributor; Ken Goe credits the Oregon defense for a job well done; Andrew Greif calls Marshall and Tyner more than capable; Don Gilman says the Cougars have nothing but respect for Oregon; Joseph Hoyt called it a second half barrage; Victor Flores gives credit to the Oregon running backs; Steve Summers likes how Oregon keeps dominating opponents; Jake Tabor credits the defense for their efforts; Rob Moseley has stories on the defense, Thomas Tyner, early adversity and a post game notebook; Craig Murphy likes Oregon's response from early turnovers; ESPN, GoDucks.com and the New York Times round out the coverage.
■ Michael Arellano, Ryan Kang, and Nate Barrett took some great photos at the game.
■ Ted Miller has a helmet sticker for Marcus Mariota and Byron Marshall.
Marshall rushed for 192 yards on 21 carries -- 9.1 yards per rush -- with three touchdowns. He also caught two passes for 54 yards.
■ I will be back later today with my highlights video so stay tuned.
UPDATE: 8:00 am PT: Just learned my Dad was taken to the hospital last night. Highlight video postponed until a later time. My apologies. Hoping for the best.
