Highlights: Play of the day was by Johnathan Loyd. Ducks were in a clutch drill, the offense needing a touchdown and down to its last play from near midfield. Juwaan Williams knocked down a Hail Mary into the end zone, and Loyd, trailing the play, had it fall right into his arms for the touchdown. Not sure what else Williams could have done to break it up; just a case of Loyd being in the right place at the right time. Arizona is coming to town next week after beating Cal on a Hail Mary, so it was crazy timing to see this develop in Oregon’s practice today. … Caveat: Tui Talia might have ended the play before it really got started with a sack, had the drill been live. Hard to say for sure. (EDIT: Looks like Helfrich told media after practice he would have ruled it a sack.)
