"They bring a lot of pressure -- we're right up there in the country in sacks, we're right up there in tackles for loss -- we can really put pressure on the quarterback in a lot of different ways that can allow people to get to get to the quarterback."
Kelly also allowed himself to reflect on Oregon's victory in Los Angeles last year against UCLA. Going in to that game, Oregon's depth was challenged, as many players -- including former quarterback Jeremiah Masoli and former safety T.J. Ward -- were sidelined with injuries or illness. Though the Ducks expect to have more players at their disposal come Thursday, Kelly remained impressed with the grit demonstrated by his team against the Bruins last season.
"The one thing people don't really realize when we went down to UCLA was how banged up we were," opined Kelly. "The travel roster was at 64 for Pac-10 games and I think we had 58 healthy guys at the game...we were so banged up down there at a lot of different positions but I think it was one of our bigger (wins). The whole effort by the whole team down there was outstanding."
