THE SERIES

•Oregon leads the all-time series 1-0 after winning 59-10 in Charlottesville, Va., on Sept. 7, 2013. Marcus

Mariota passed for 199 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another 122 yards and a TD in the win.

•Virginia will become the fi rst ACC team to ever play at Autzen. The game is just the second regular-season

matchup against an ACC team for the Ducks with the fi rst coming at UVA in 2013. The Ducks have played

two ACC teams in three bowl games. Oregon beat Florida State 59-20 in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, 2015, while

losing to Wake Forest in both the 1992 Independence Bowl and the 2002 Seattle Bowl.

QUICK HITS

•FR LB Troy Dye earned Pac-12 Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors after his performance

against UC Davis. Dye fi nished with 11 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and a sack. He also blocked a FG attempt.

•JR WR Devon Allen was just the fourth active college football player to ever qualify for the Summer

Olympics in track and fi eld. Allen, who placed fi fth in the 100m hurdles in Rio, joined Marquise Goodman

(Texas; 2012 Olympics - long jump), James Jett (West Virginia; 1992 Olympics - sprinter) and Bob Hayes

(Florida A&M; 1964 Olympics - sprinter).

•JR RB Royce Freeman moved up three spots during the UC Davis game to 27th all-time in Pac-12 career rushing, while climbing one spot to 18th all-time on the conference career rushing touchdowns list. The Ducks’ running back needs 729 yards to crack the top 10 in rushing, while needing 23 rushing TDs to become the Pac-12’s all-time leader.

•Oregon has had a 1,000-yard rusher each of the last nine seasons, the longest active streak in the country. During that stretch, the Ducks have had 10 backs rush for over 1,000 yards.

•While Freeman needs 17 rushing touchdowns to pass Oregon record holder LaMichael James (2009-11) for the all-time lead, he needs just fi ve TDs on the ground to pass Kenjon Barner (2009-12) and Derek Loville (1986-89) for second on the list.

•Freeman needs 100 all-purpose yards against Virginia to move into the career top 10 at Oregon.

•JR WR Darren Carrington III has 53 receptions for 1,117 yards and 10 TDs in last 10 games.

•JR K Aidan Schneider is the most accurate kicker in Oregon history making 91.9 percent (34-of-37) of his fi eld goal attempts.
