Dawg Recap: Oregon Ducks Head South to the POND after Suffering 33-36 Loss

The Oregon Ducks weren't necessarily the worst team on the field although the final score didn't reflect that. The Washington Huskies didn't necessarily win on offense, defense, or special teams, but benefited from Dan Lanning's coaching decisions, that proved to be counterproductive.



GAME SUMMARY:

The first half proved to be a pretty even match with both teams trading scores until a Huskie receiver fell down on a route and the Ducks intercepted the pass. That drive got them within yards of the goal-line, but they failed to punch it in and turned the ball over on downs. The teams would leave the field at the half with Oregon trailing 19-22.


The 3rd quarter saw the teams trade scores but as the 4th quarter started, the Ducks found themselves with a short-lived 33-29 lead. The 4th also featured a Ducks goal-line stand. The Ducks would then drive the ball across the 50 to the 47-yard line, where they turned it over on downs. The Huskies would take over and score the final touchdown of the game, 36-33 Huskies. Oregon would have one more chance but miss a 43-yard field goal attempt as time expired to seal their fate.


TURNING POINT(s):

There were several questionable attempts on 4th down for the Ducks. Even though they are converting these at a healthy 62%, the Huskies are defending at 43%. Take the three points going into the half and be down by only one.


The other missed opportunity was as time was running down in the 4th. Rather than going for it on 4th from the 47-yard line, punt and make the Huskies drive the distance for that final touchdown.


WINNING MVP – Washington Huskies

Offensive – Dillon Johnson with 20 carries for 100 yards

Defensive - Edefuan Ulofoshio with 11 Tackles, 9 Solo, 1 Sack, and 1 TFL


LOSING MVP – Oregon Ducks

Offensive – Troy Franklin, 8 receptions for 154 yards

Defensive – Jahlil Florence for a rare Penix INT


WHAT THIS MEANS - Washington Huskies

The Washington Huskies, are now in the driver’s seat for a Pac-12 playoff spot and will play host to a struggling Arizona State next week.


WHAT THIS MEANS - Oregon Ducks

The Oregon Ducks have become a one loss team and must walk a fine line. They face a tough schedule for the rest of the season. Visiting next week will be a stunned Washington State team who took a Homecoming beat down last weekend at the hands of Arizona.
