Duck Stuff: Morning Mud
■ KEZI shares their game recap video from the local newscast. Little bit of a shaky start and then the Ducks rolled as Oregon wins 57-16.
■ A lot of good coverage for our first Pac-12 road game so let's get going with the stories: Steve Summers said the Ducks rolled to an easy victory; Ken Goe says the road will now get tougher; Andrew Greif noted the bend but don't break defense; Jason Quick says the scariest thing is how the Ducks can get better; Lindsey Tucker has the recap from the ODE; Dale Newton says the Ducks stomped the Buffaloes; Nathan Roholt notes the slow start and then the rout; Rob Moseley has a postgame notebook and quotes from the win; ESPN and GoDucks.com round out the coverage.
■ Michael Arellano and Taylor Wilder have photos as well as the Oregonian.
■ Colt Lyerla didn't travel to Colorado because of a one game suspension for violating team rules.
■ Kevin Gemmell says Oregon and Stanford are a cut above in the Pac-12.
Oregon, meanwhile, looks unstoppable -- and its blowout win over Tennessee last month looks even better after the Vols pushed Georgia to overtime Saturday. Marcus Mariota looks every bit the Heisman frontrunner after setting a career high with seven touchdowns (five in the air, two on the ground) against an improved, but still lower-tier Buffs team. The Ducks poured on 755 yards of total offense -- the second highest total in school history (the record is 772, which they got this year in the season opener against Nicholls State).
■ I'll have my highlight video posted later today on YouTube and here so stay tuned.
