NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about the Ducks’ blowout over Virginia and hands out his game balls to three players who were very impressive in their position groups. While De’Anthony Thomas could have taken home the offensive game ball as well, Mariota’s ability to scramble and flash his top speed earned him the offensive game ball while Derrick Malone stepped up on defense and Alejandro Maldonado was impressive on special teams.

NWSB Editor Bryant Knox gives us five x-factors for the Oregon Ducks entering their Week 2 matchup against the Virginia Cavaliers. Getting players like De’Anthony Thomas out in space will be crucial. Thomas Tyner and Byron Marshall will be able to play up the middle. The team that wins the turnover battle will have the edge, but the Ducks can control the tempo from start to finish. Virginia may have home-field advantage, but if the Ducks can quiet the crowd early, they’ll continue their recent road success.

Three things to watch for in Oregon’s next game

Mariota

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson gives you three things to watch out for when the Ducks travel east to take on the Virginia Cavaliers. Fresh of a 66-3 blowout of the Nicholls State Colonels, Oregon will be facing different conditions against the Cavaliers in both terms of game atmosphere, temperature, and style. The Ducks will need to be road warriors on Saturday and not look past a team who will be gearing up for a big upset.

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson dishes out his game balls from Oregon’s triumphant and blowout victory over the Nicholls State Colonels. A route everybody expected to occur, the Ducks soared over the Colonels and dominated all facets of the game. Marcus Mariota led the way on offense while Tony Washington played big on defense and Keanon Lowe looked impressive on special teams.

The Oregon Ducks will score 70 points vs. Nicholls State

The Oregon Ducks have a serious home-field advantage.

NWSB Editor Bryant Knox gives us five reasons why the Oregon Ducks will score at least 70 points on Nicholls State in the season opener. To start, Marcus Mariota, De’Anthony Thomas and Byron Marshall will be too much talent for a bad defense to handle. The Ducks also have home-field advantage, which has done them well in the past — especially in the first game of the year. Also, the Oregon State Beavers scored 77 on this team last season.
