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.

Three things to watch for in Oregon’s next game

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.
