Something is going on in the state of Oregon. Both Chip Kelly’s Oregon Ducks and Mike Riley’s Oregon State Beavers are ranked in the top 10 in the BCS, with Oregon being undefeated and Oregon State’s only loss coming to Washington in a close 20 – 17 game on the road.
Maybe it’s something in the water.
Last Saturday both Oregon and Oregon State put up good offensive numbers, and even though Oregon gave up quite a few points to USC and the Barkley/Lee combination, they’ve done a pretty decent job of holding their opponents down all season. (allowing on average 22 points most coming late)
Oregon’s Kenjon Barner had a spectacular 5 touchdown weekend and put up 321 rushing yards. Barner should now lead everyone’s Heisman board (we’ll have more on Heisman this week).
