Highlights: Most of the team periods were held at walk-through pace, though Tony Washington did show off impressive anticipation by jumping out and intercepting a screen pass with one hand in that format. … The most entertaining period thus was 7-on-7. Marcus Mariota peppered the ball around to Byron Marshall, Charles Nelson, Dwayne Stanford, Darren Carrington and Devon Allen. Jeff Lockie was throwing with Chance Allen, Johnathan Loyd, Koa Ka'ai and Johnny Mundt among others. … On the defensive field, Tyree Robinson tipped a pass away from a receiver and into the arms of Arrion Springs. A few minutes later, Robinson nearly had an interception of his own, but settled for another pass breakup. Ragin, Reggie Daniels and Dior Mathis also broke up passes.

...Duck fans would be just as happy with another uneventful blowout. Nobody stealing the mascot or the head of Lee Corso, just some brisk early touchdown drives and no theatrics. Wrap things up early and clean. There’s a conference championship to play for and a final four berth. Business as usual would be just fine.
