Third quarter: Oregon 43, USC 32
By Ted Miller
That's how you answer a challenge.
USC took the lead, but Oregon answered with a 12-play, 69-yard drive and a 10-play, 80-yard drive to score consecutive TDs, the Ducks retaking the lead 43-32.
Both drives took over four minutes, which is very un-Duck like. Their entire time of possession while scoring 29 first-half points was 8:29.
Oregon has outgained USC 471 to 264 through three quarters.
You can sense fatigue with the Trojans' defense. Can the Trojans offense counter with a long drive? And then can the D step up.
