The Ducks have come out and dominated from the get go jumping out to a 14 point lead. Washington hasn't been able to do anything on offense and they haven't been able to stop the Ducks on defense. It could be a very long night. Oregon out gained the Huskies 151 to 29 in the 1st quarter. My first impression is opening night jitters for a young team. The Huskies need to develop some rhythm.
The Huskies have settled down and developed some rhythm and have closed the Oregon lead to 14-10. Washington is playing much better in the second quarter on both sides of the ball. Quinton Richardson made a nice interception. Jake looks to be around 80% tonight. Kavario Middleton has caught three passes and it looks like he will be a major weapon this season. The offensive line isn't getting any push on running plays. The Washington running game is once again all about Jake scrambling.
Looks like Roper could be out with an injury so they will go with their 3rd string QB in the second half. Moselli played the last three minutes of the first half and looked fine.
The Huskies trail 14-10 at halftime.
Can Willingham out coach Bellotti is the second half?
Adjustments in the second half were a major problem last season.
Both teams go three and out on their first series but Oregon gets a nice punt return from Byrd and drives it quickly to the endzone to take a 21-10 lead early in the third. Looks like the Ducks have taken back the momentum.
Oregon goes with Chris Harper who is the third Duck QB of the night.
Washington isn't moving the ball at all in the third quarter. Poor field position and lack of adjustments that work are hurting them.
Washington special teams rears its ugly head for the third time tonight when Jarius byrd makes another great punt return breaking Husky arm tackles.
The third quarter ends with Oregon on the UW 16 driving to put this one away with a 21-10 lead.
Washington still hasn't broken its habit of being out adjusted in the third quarter.
Harper is the best QB I have seen tonight. He is going to be a great Dennis Dixon clone. Good chance the Ducks go with him the rest of the year.
The Ducks have used three QB's tonight. What is this a spring scrimmage?
The Huskies hold to start the fourth quarter and the Ducks hit a 41 yard Fg to take a 24-10 lead. This is still a gem, but UW needs to get something going on offense.
UW goes for it on 4th and 3 around mid field and Jake gets pounded. On the next play Oregon hits a big on to Williams to take what seems to be an insurmountable 30-10 lead.
Habben has been eaten up all night. UW's offensive line has been terrible tonight and that is the real story of this game. I think it may have been the worst Washington rushing performance I can remember seeing.
Trailing 30 -10 the Huskies panic on the next series throwing long on every play hoping for a miracle. The offensive play calling and execution has been terrible the entire second half.
UW's defense is getting really tired, way too many arm tackles as the game winds down. It looks like they are giving up.
Oregon drives it down the field again to take a 37-10 lead.
23 straight unanswered points in the second half by Oregon.
Ty says "No Mas, No Mas"....Jake Locker gets pulled from the game and Ronnie Fouch comes in.
Fouch has a decent drive going until one of Kearse fumbles after a reception.
Oregon takes the ball and drives it down the field to take a 44-10 lead with 46 seconds left.
This was one of the most important game of Ty Willinghams career and it ends up as being the worst loss in his tenure at Washington.
