This week the Oregon Defense faces a different monster in Halliday and Oregon may be on their toes according to Pellum, “When you face an offense that spreads the ball out and throws it down the field you have to play with great intensity because if someone misses a tackle it can become a bugger play. Everyone is going to have to tackle.”
It is early in the NFL season, but right now wins are more important when it comes to lining yourself up for the playoffs and a potential Super Bowl run.
Cowboys leave Autzen with saddle sores.
The volleyball season has started and there are some new faces on the team. Once Oregon got the first game out of the way, not playing the way they should have, the team returned to form and was never really threatened during the following three games.

Oregon Quarterback Marcus Mariota was responsible for a few milestones including reaching seven thousand offensive yards for his career and extending his touchdown passing streak to twenty nine.

Twenty-eight games so far and he will be looking to make it twenty-nine on Saturday. He is currently second all-time in the category behind Rakeem Kato of Marshall who currently has thirty-four.
The Cowboys of Wyoming (2-0, 1-0 Mountain West) are the latest visitors to Autzen Stadium in Eugene on Saturday as the Ducks mark a third consecutive home game to start the campaign before heading to Pullman next week to take on Washington State.
When your the number two team in the nation, every game is important and you cannot look lightly at your schedule no matter who the opponent is. Wyoming will bring a different set of challeges for Oregon to overcome.
Shooting photos at the Oregon-Michigan State football game was a highlight moment. This game was so hyped and had so much riding on it; it was exciting being on the field shooting the action.
