It was a great game. It came down to the final possession.
And the Beavers didn't come out on top.
They jumped out to an early lead.... they rallied... but penalties riddled the Beavers, and they couldn't get the ball back at the end of the game. There are other things to point to as well... Oregon converting fourth downs... blown coverages... and missed tackles. But the Beavers fought hard and left it all out on the field... it's hard to complain about that.
Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for 64 yards on 16 carries and Sean Canfield was 24 of 36 passing for 306 yards. Jeremiah Masoli passed for 201 yards and rushed for another 40... LaMichael James rushed for 166, and Lagarette Blount saw some time, rushing for 51 yards and a score.
Sure, losing twice to Oregon with the Rose Bowl on the line hurts. But congratulations to the Ducks on a well played game, and best of luck in Rose Bowl.
