Third quarter: Oregon 34, Washington 17

11/6/2011

SEATTLE -- Muted in the first half, both offenses traded blows in the third quarter. Oregon landed more quality shots.

Oregon leads 34-17 entering the fourth quarter. It's not easy making up a 17-point deficit against the Ducks.

We are very close to a marquee top-10 matchup between the Ducks and Stanford next weekend.

Oregon had TD drives of 90 and 70 yards. The Huskies went 75 yards for their TD.

But Washington just didn't have enough: It was outgained 194 to 93 in the quarter and outscored 17-7.

The Huskies even opted to go for it on a fourth-and-4 play at midfield with 3:40 left in the quarter, coach Steve Sarkisian probably realizing his team needed points, no matter the risk. But Oregon got the stop, and went the other way and added a field goal.
