Buckeyes put pressure on Ducks
By ESPN.com staff
PASADENA, Calif. -- Terrelle Pryor is having his hello world moment at Oregon's expense.
The Buckeyes went 81 yards in 13 plays to go up 26-17 with 6:01 remaining. Pryor and the Buckeyes converted three times on third down on the drive -- 5 yards, 13 yards and 6 yards.
The Buckeyes are 9-of-18 on third down. Oregon is 2-for-10.
Oregon is down two scores with seven minutes left.
That would seem like plenty of time, but not if the Ducks defense can't get third-down stops.
