 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Oregon's defense began the game by giving up a 16-play touchdown drive. Justin Herbert then threw only his second interception since last November. The Ducks had barely survived back-to-back close games in the previous two weeks, and their winning streak appeared to be in peril again when they fell 10 points behind Southern California after the first quarter. A calming little chat on the Coliseum sideline kept Oregon firmly on track in the College Football Playoff race with another blowout win. Herbert passed for 225 yards and threw three touchdown passes to Juwan Johnson in the second half, and No. 7 Oregon recovered from a slow start to cruise to its eighth consecutive victory, 56-24 over USC on Saturday night.

Oregon (8-1, 6-0 Pac-12) obliterated that early deficit by scoring a touchdown after each of four turnovers by USC freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis during a 19-minute stretch spanning halftime. Freshman Mykael Wright also returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown shortly after Brady Breeze returned an interception 32 yards for a score late in the second quarter. But the Ducks looked shaky in the opening quarter until they settled down and got to work. "We just looked at each other," Herbert said. "We knew that we're a special group, and we just needed to calm down and say, `This isn't us. We're going to do better.' And we addressed that and got to move the ball pretty well. We knew we were better than that. We just had to fix things." Herbert and receiver Jaylon Redd rushed for touchdowns in the first half for Oregon, which remained on track for the Pac-12 North title and a good shot at a playoff spot. - Oregon/AP College Football
