EUGENE – There were no surprises for the 57,388 fans in attendance on Saturday night as Oregon…
Oregon 41-13 at the Half
Had Marshall scored on the play that resulted in a touchback that would have given him a rushing score but as it turned out freshman Royce Freeman more than made up for the mistake with two touchdown runs of 1 and 26 yards. Mariota scored on a 1-yard run of his own just before the half ended to complete a 10-play drive cover 76 yards accomplished in one minute and 22 seconds.
Marshall was the leading rusher for the game in the first half with 58 yards on two carries while starter Thomas Tyner had 50 net yards on seven carries. Freeman finished the half with 48 yards on five totes and Mariota added 43 yards on six carries.
Marshall was the leading receiver with 117 yards on six receptions while Darren Carrington had four receptions for 68 yards.
South Dakota kicked two field goals by Myles Bergner of 47 and 25 yards. The Coyotes mounted a six play, 75 yard drive culminated by Trevor Bouma’s 3-yard run into the endzone.
So far in the game, South Dakota has 215 yards of total offense.
