First quarter: Oregon 10, Washington 3
By Ted Miller
SEATTLE -- Mistakes are the story of the first quarter.
A Keith Price interception on Washington's first possession set up Oregon's touchdown. A Darron Thomas fumble set up the Huskies' field goal. And a 69-yard De'Anthony Thomas kick return set up the Ducks' field goal.
Both teams have been gifted short fields. The two field goals probably represented wins for the defenses.
Oregon's Thomas still seems a little off. LaMichael James doesn't. Nor does Chris Polk.
Will the sloppiness continue? Or will both teams settle down?
