Cliff Harris, Barner's back up as a punt return specialist, scored twice to tie a Pac-10 record and set a school mark. The returns of 61 and 64 yards were on consecutive punts in the second quarter of the game.
Senior linebacker Casey Matthews was nominated for the defensive honor, but no one on the Duck defense had more than five tackles, even though Oregon shut out New Mexico and held the Lobos to no points and only 107 total yards of total offense. Matthews recorded an interception during the game.
