Ducks 2014 Season Finally Arrives!

Football is back again in Autzen! Another sellout crowd on hand to watch the Oregon Ducks run over and pass by South Dakota in a 62-13 rout to open the 2014 season. eDuck photographers Rich Kolbell and sportswriter Jake Tabor were on the field to capture the action.

Oregon's opener against South Dakota on Saturday night was marked by a strong ground and air attack, with Marcus Mariota passing for 267 yards, and the trio of running backs adding to the 673 yard total. Marshall excelled running and receiving, with strong support from Thomas Tyner and a superb first game from freshman Royce Freeman. Defense had a good opportunity to tune up and look more closely at their strengths, and areas to develop, as they allowed 5 yards per play.
