AStateNation will take a look at the stats both on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball each week after an Arkansas State University Football Game.

Arkansas State's defense didn't fare so well in the first half against Oregon, giving up 50 points to the No. 5 ranked Oregon Ducks.

In the second half it was a different story, as Arkansas State responded and played well, considering that the Ducks are one of the fastest teams that the Red Wolves will face all season.
