Cal vs. Oregon Score Update: De'Anthony Thomas, Kenjon Barner Pace Ducks To 43-15 Victory

The Oregon Ducks offense came out in the third quarter and did what they always do--ball out. Oregon absolutely maimed the California Golden Bears defense, taking advantage of man-to-man coverage and exploiting mismatches to break them apart. Josh Huff made big plays in one-on-one coverage with the Cal freshman cornerback Stefan McClure.

De'Anthony Thomas proved he could make plays in space out of the backfield, making two impressive touchdown catches in the corners of the end zone to put Oregon up ahead. Kenjon Barner had a huge 68 yard rush to burst things wide open. Cal simply took too many risks and left defenders on one-on-one islands, and Darron Thomas made the defense pay with big throws to the Black Mamba.  Oregon converted all their third downs in the third quarter, and it was enough to cruise them past the Bears.

The Cal defense did not get much help from their offense, as the Golden Bears got pushed off the field over and over and over again. Zach Maynard was not consistent at all and eventually got knocked out of the game. Isi Sofele had a nice game running, but the Bears didn't go to him a lot and were sunk by a poor passing attack. Keenan Allen put up 170 receiving yards on nine catches to help bail out Maynard.

LaMichael James did suffer a serious injury which you should not at all watch, but the link is here if you're a sadist.
