GALLERY: Cat Scratch Fever

The Ducks were vulnerable when Arizona came to town, with a tattered offensive line that had a hard time protecting Marcus Mariota. The backfield was often congested, and Mariota had to run and improvise. On the other side, Anu Soloman had ample time to throw, and the Wildcats' running game was extremely effective agains the Duck defense, with tackles often at the second and third levels.

Oregon will need to establish game control early, and the Ducks need to play with relentless ferocity for 60 minutes. These shots illustrate what the Ducks need to correct, and a few that show what they did well. Friday needs to be a complete game for Oregon to secure the PAC-12 title, and extend their season.
