Highlights: The No. 1 offense hit the ground running when Mark Helfrich called an audible and moved the “clutch” drill to the start of practice. A couple Marcus Mariota passes to Devon Allen and a run by Royce Freeman got the ball deep into the red zone, where Matt Wogan converted a short, “game-winning” field goal. It was another story with the twos on the field, as the defense controlled the scenario. I always see that as the perfect outcome; you want the No. 1 offense to be able to score on anybody, but the No. 2 defense to win its reps because that shows the Ducks have the defensive depth they tend to need due to their low time of possession (currently 25:27.67 per game, second-lowest in the country)...
