Tennessee running back Tauren Poole drove the Ducks crazy with his blasts through the line and racked up 140 yards and 15 carries including a one-yard plunge for a score.
The Ducks sputtered offensively and were unable to find the end zone until their last drive of the half that culminated with a 27-yard strike from Darron Thomas to tight end David Paulson.
Thomas was 12-for-22, 132 yards and a touchdown. He also was the leading Oregon rusher with 34 yards on seven carries.
The game was stopped at the 7:20 mark in the first quarter for 70 minutes due to lightning strikes in the stadium area.
Overall, the two teams were also even in firstdowns (13), punts (two) with Tennessee having a slight edge in total offense (244-200).
Even though the crowd nearly abandoned the stadium to seek shelter during the lightning storm, the stadium was refilled to nearly capacity at the halftime break.
Game Delayed, but Tied at Halftime
