FBS Ranks This Season
Oregon entered Thursday’s game versus UCLA as the AP No. 1 team for the first time in school history. A large part of their success has come from the most potent offense in the Bowl Subdivision (FBS).
Thursday Oregon rolled up 582 yards of total offense and scored on each of its first six possessions. Five different Ducks found the end zone en route to Oregon’s first 7-0 start since 1933. The Ducks have reached 60 points an FBS-high three times this season.
QB Darron Thomas became the sixth different Oregon QB to start against UCLA in as many games. He completed his first 11 passes and finished 22 of 31 for a career-high 308 pass yards and 3 TD.
RB LaMichael James added 123 rush yards and 2 TD. He has scored a touchdown in all six games he's played in this season, giving him 26 scores in 19 career games (25 rush, 1 rec). Five of his last 13 touchdowns have gone for 50-plus yards. James also notched his 14th career 100-yard rushing game, tying him with Jonathan Stewart for the most in school history.
The Ducks have won 14 straight games at Autzen Stadium, including 11 straight against Pac-10 opponents. The 14-game win streak is the second longest in stadium history (won 23 straight between 1997 and 2001).
In outscoring their opponents by a combined 386-111, the Ducks have totaled more points than any other seven-game stretch in their history (September 1-Oct. 20, 2007).
They’ve scored 33 touchdowns in four home games this season, an average of 8.3 TD a game. The 33 TD at home are more than 106 FBS teams have scored for the entire season!
