Duck Stuff: Thursday Edition

■ Andrew Greif continues looking at our opponents next season and today it's Arizona St.

Arizona State has become relevant in the Pac-12 standings again under Todd Graham, who led ASU to the conference championship game two seasons ago and the distinction of being just one of 12 schools — including Oregon — that has won more than 10 games in each of the past two seasons. Beating an Oregon team expected to begin the season ranked in the nation's top-10, however, would mark Graham's biggest victory yet and a sign the Sun Devils could make noise in more than just the Pac-12's South Division.

■ Byron Marshall has been added to the Biletnikoff Award watch list.

■ Chantel Jennings reviews the defensive backs in the Pac-12 North and has Oregon in "good shape."

■ Kevin Gemmell has the Oregon vs MSU as the ultimate Pac-12 road trip in week two of the season.

■ Mark Flores has the latest on recruiting news.

■ Football tickets won't come cheap this season.

■ Marcus Mariota won an ESPY Award for the best male collegiate athlete last night.

■ Cole Irvin made it official, he'll return to the mound for the Ducks next season.
