  09/26/21 - Anthony Brown Jr.rSr/2022, Oregon, 6-1, 226 (DS#16 QB) + More +

  Anthony Brown threw for 206 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 3 Oregon handed Arizona its 16th straight loss with a 41-19 victory on Saturday night. Oregon (4-0, 1-0 Pac-12) extended its winning streak at Autzen Stadium to 15 games. The Ducks are the lone undefeated team left in the Pac-12. Despite being winless this season, the Wildcats (0-4, 0-1) closed to within 24-19 late in the third quarter on Drake Anderson's 1-yard touchdown run.

Oregon extended its lead with Camden Lewis' 43-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, then added Brown's 18-yard scoring pass to Spencer Webb to make it 34-19 with 8:26 left. The Ducks put it away on Bennett Williams' 68-yard interception return for a touchdown on Arizona's ensuing series. The Ducks got off to a quick start, with Brown's pass to Jaylon Redd for a 63-yard touchdown just more than a minute into the game. Then Oregon intercepted Arizona starter Jordan McCloud on the Wildcats' first series. - Oregon/AP College Football

  09/19/21 - Ty ThompsonFr/2025, Oregon, 6-3, 223 (DS#14 QB) + More +

  True freshman quarterback Ty Thompson wasn't fazed at all when he got the nod for Oregon's second half against Story Brook. Thompson threw two touchdown passes and the No. 4 Ducks overcame a sluggish start to beat the Seawolves 48-7 on Saturday night in a game delayed because of lightning. Starter Anthony Brown threw for a touchdown and ran for another but left the game at halftime after he was sacked twice to close out the second quarter. It didn't appear to be serious. "I thought Ty was very cool, didn't flinch at all," Oregon coach Mario Cristobal said. "I've seen sometimes that quarterbacks, you tap them on the shoulder and say ‘It's your turn' and their eyes get about yay big. Wasn't the case with him at all, there was no flinch." The Ducks, coming off their big win last weekend at Ohio State, improved to 3-0 as they head into Pac-12 play next weekend. It was Oregon's 14th straight win at Autzen Stadium, as well as its 28th nonconference victory at home. But the Ducks looked lethargic to start a game that was supposed to be an easy blowout. - Oregon/AP College Football

  C.J. Verdell watched on TV last week as Minnesota's Mohamed Ibrahim shredded Ohio State's disheveled defense early. The Oregon running back thought he could take advantage in the same fashion. Verdell, who has struggled with injuries the past two seasons, made it happen. He ran for 161 yards and scored three touchdowns as short-handed No. 12 Oregon stunned No. 3 Ohio State 35-28. Verdell and quarterback Anthony Brown exploited holes in Ohio State's defense and handed the Buckeyes their first regular-season loss in nearly three years and the first of third-year coach Ryan Day's tenure. The Buckeyes' last loss in the regular season came at Purdue in October 2018 under Urban Meyer. - AP College Football

  09/12/21 - Verone McKinley IIIrJr/2023, Oregon, 5-10, 194 (DS#4 FS) + More +

  Oregon and Iowa were the big movers in The Associated Press college football poll after road wins over top-10 opponents. The Ducks' victory over Ohio State earned them a promotion from No. 12 to No. 4. Another impressive defensive performance by Iowa in the Cy-Hawk Trophy game pushed the Hawkeyes from No. 10 to No. 5. Arkansas, coming off a home win over old Southwest Conference rival Texas, was rewarded with its first appearance in the AP Top 25 in five years, coming in at No. 20. Alabama remained No. 1 in the AP Top 25, which is presented by Regions Bank. The Crimson Tide received 60 of the 63 first-place votes. Georgia, which picked up the other three first-place votes, stayed at No. 2. Oklahoma was No. 3 and followed by Oregon, Iowa, Clemson, Texas A&M, Cincinnati, Ohio State and Penn State. - AP College Football

  C.J. Verdell watched on TV last week as Minnesota's Mohamed Ibrahim shredded Ohio State's disheveled defense early. The Oregon running back thought he could take advantage in the same fashion. Verdell, who has struggled with injuries the past two seasons, made it happen. He ran for 161 yards and scored three touchdowns as shorthanded No. 12 Oregon stunned No. 3 Ohio State 35-28 on Saturday. "We saw the Minnesota running back was having a good game, and we wanted to do the same thing," the 5-foot-8, 211-pound Verdell said.

Verdell and quarterback Anthony Brown exploited holes in Ohio State's defense and handed the Buckeyes their first regular-season loss in nearly three years and the first of third-year coach Ryan Day's tenure. The Buckeyes' last loss in the regular season came at Purdue in October 2018 under Urban Meyer. Ohio State (1-1, 1-0 Big Ten) never led the game it was favored to win by 14 1/2 points despite gaudy numbers from freshman quarterback C.J. Stroud. Its front seven struggled to contain Verdell, control the edge and get after Brown in front. "They quickly adapted and just played with grit and toughness, knowing this was going to be a slugfest," Oregon coach Mario Cristobal said. - Oregon/AP College Football

His 14 tackles are the most by a UO freshman since Troy Dye had 14 on Sept. 21, 2016...First Oregon player since 2007 and just the fourth overall since 2000 to have at least 14 tackles and a forced fumble in the same game...1st Oregon player to win the award since it started in 2019.

  09/04/21 - Anthony Brown Jr.rSr/2022, Oregon, 6-1, 226 (DS#16 QB) + More +

  Anthony Brown Jr. was blunt about No. 11 Oregon's offensive struggles against Fresno State. "It wasn't clean enough," he said. Brown scored on a 30-yard quarterback keeper with 2:57 left and the Ducks overcame a wobbly season opener with a 31-24 victory over the Bulldogs on Saturday. Oregon jumped to a 21-6 lead, but Fresno State scored two unanswered touchdowns to tie the game midway through the third quarter, then took the lead early in the fourth on Abraham Montano's field goal.

Camden Lewis kicks a 25-yard game-tying field goal before Brown's go-ahead touchdown. The performance was somewhat concerning given the Ducks face No. 4 Ohio State next weekend. "In order for us to go where we need to go, we have to be firing on all cylinders, which we weren't today. And that was obvious," Brown said. "We're going to see it on the tape, fix what we need to we need to fix and move on and progress from it." Brown threw for 172 yards and a touchdown while running for 62 yards and the winner. It was Oregon's 17th straight home-opening victory. Brown, a sixth-year senior, transferred to Oregon last year from Boston College but was backup to Tyler Shough until getting playing time in the Pac-12 title game and the Fiesta Bowl. Shough transferred to Texas Tech in the offseason. - Oregon/AP College Football

  09/04/21 - Kayvon ThibodeauxrSo/2024, Oregon, 6-5, 258 (DS#1 DE) + More +

  Oregon defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux injured his left ankle in Saturday's game against Fresno State and did not play in the second half. Thibodeaux, mentioned as a possible Heisman Trophy candidate this season, was injured in the first half of No. 11 Oregon's season opener. He returned after having the ankle taped. The 6-foot-5, 258-pound, third-year sophomore emerged from halftime wearing street clothes and a walking boot on his left leg. Oregon coach Mario Cristobal said after the game that it appeared to be a sprain and that X-Rays were negative. "We're very optimistic that it's nothing too serious," Cristobal said.

Oregon survived a challenge from the Bulldogs but emerged with a 31-24 win. Before he was hurt, Thibodeaux had two solo tackles and a sack. "That's one of the best players in the country right there, probably the best player in the country right there," center Alex Forsyth said. "So it's always a tough to see a guy who's a true leader, a high-level competitor, and just such an unbelievable player with an unbelievable motor, to see him go down. It's terrible because he makes such a huge difference on our defense." Thibodeaux is projected to be among the top picks in the 2022 NFL draft should he decide to leave Oregon early. - AP College Football
