Auburn gets the big stop
By Ted Miller
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Oregon got a big play on a fake punt. It got a big play on a great catch from Lavasier Tuinei. It got a first-and-goal situation that could have reversed the momentum.
But Auburn stoned the Ducks on four plays, including a fourth-and-1 stop of Kenjon Barner.
That was vintage Chip Kelly, taking chances, getting big plays. Everything but the fourth-down stop.
Again, Oregon D needs to step up with the Tigers pinned deep.
