Oregon defeats Virginia on Sept. 10, 2016

Oregon Hosted Virginia Saturday night, inn a game that welcomed the return of Dwayne Stanford, Pharaoh Brown, and Devon Allen as key figures in the Ducks’ offense, which posted 632 total yards. Royce Freeman carried 21 times for 207 yards and 2 TDs, while Dakota Prukop ran the offense and threw the football 31 times, completing 21 including 3 TD passes.

The defense was somewhat less compelling, allowing 245 yards on the ground and 195 airborne yards, including two for TDs.

The soft underbelly of the defensive line, missed tackles, and tackles in the secondary hounded the Ducks throughout the night; indeed, Tyree Robinson lead all tacklers with seven on the night. The D-line did record six sacks, including two from Jalen Jelks, while Jonah Moi, Drayton CarlbergRex Manu, and Austin Maloata contributed one apiece. Jelks had six solo tackles on the night, with freshman Troy Dye finishing with five unassisted.

 Duck fans looked ahead with some uncertainty as Oregon prepares for a bruising matchup at Nebraska. All hope they finish with something to cheer about, and send off the Ducks with support and a salute!
