For the day Harrington was 13 for 23 and 195 yards with the one touchdown pass. Morris ended the day with 14 carries and 129 yards and a touchdown. Morris averaged nine yards per carry.
"We had to run hard," Morris told the Oregon Sports Network after the game.
Morris' running mate, Onterrio Smith ran for 44 yards including a very important first down conversion in the fourth quarter on the Ducks final scoring drive. For the most part though in the fourth quarter it was the Duck defense that had to deliver. When the Ducks fell behind early in the fourth quarter the offense came on the field and march down and scored.
"We did a nice job of coming back," said Head Coach Mike Bellotti.
For the Ducks the fourth quarter in this game proved to test the character of Oregon. All game long when it seemed the Oregon defense had the Bruin offense right where they wanted them; UCLA would find some way of converting on third downs.
"We gave up too many big plays," said Bellotti "It is frustrating."
Morris described the fourth quarter as the one that was most important and today when the Ducks needed to score they did and when the Ducks needed to make a defensive stand that too was accomplished.
Steve Smith recorded his sixth interception of the season. Rashad Bauman also had an interception.
The Ducks now have three weeks off awaiting the Civil War and Bellotti describe the team as going into a Bowl mentality. This year's game with Oregon State will have nation wide attention and any thought that the Ducks will over look the Beavers can be quickly extinguished. In the next three weeks Bellotti hopes to work the Ducks hard enough to keep their edge, and Oregon will keep in mind the loss to Oregon State last season.
" The Oregon State Beavers will have our full attention," said Bellotti.
