Oregon Football: Ducks Look To Finish Strong vs Boise State
18 December, 2017, 01:01
Instead, the Ducks spent the final weekend before recruiting's new signing period playing in the Las Vegas Bowl, where their oft-sloppy, sometimes stunning start to the Mario Cristobal era was broadcast to a nationwide audience. Cristobal was promoted three days later behind a push from players, more than 70 of whom delivered a petition to UO's athletic director asking for his hiring.
OR didn't run a single play in Boise State territory during the first half, and the only thing that kept the Ducks in it was a pair of long return touchdowns on defense in the final minute of the second quarter. OR is playing in the Las Vegas Bowl for the third time. It took 36 plays to cross midfield. The Broncos outgained the Ducks 294-77 in the first half and reached Ducks' territory on 10 of 15 meaningful possessions. "We're a second-half time in our mind".
OR showed signs of life late. It was a rare instance of a big play for UO's offense, which entered the game as the country's eighth-best rushing attack yet finished with 47 rushing yards and 280 total yards without Royce Freeman, who elected to sit out.
Rather than being happy with a 24-7 lead and kneeling on the ball, Boise State got aggressive after receiving the ensuing kickoff. As if that didn't confuse the OR secondary enough, each receiver twirled at the same time in ideal synchronization to further confuse the defense on the way to Boise State's first score of the game.
Boise State forced four turnovers in the first half, taking a 14-0 lead in the first quarter on Wolpin's 1-yard touchdown run and Rypien's 26-yard scoring pass to Wilson.
Top performance: Linebacker Troy Dye and safety Tyree Robinson scored defensive touchdowns for OR in the final 37 seconds of the first half to cut UO's deficit to 24-14 before halftime. Two of his touchdown passes went to Damion Willis, who had 136 yards and two touchdown receptions.

Detroit Tigers Trade Ian Kinsler to Angels
Now that the Angels have Kinsler it then begs the question if they will have enough to fill their other void at third base. Danny Espinosa and Cliff Pennington split time there for the Halos last season; both are no longer with the club.

QB Justin Herbert missed some of the season because of injury, but when he's on the field, Oregon's offense has been tough to stop. Both of Springs' interceptions have come in the end zone.
Boise State out-gained OR 481-285, won the time of possession battle by more than 13 minutes and had 28 first downs in the game compared to 14 for the Ducks. The 15-yard penalty led to a punt.
The Ducks' momentum did not carry over into the third quarter, however, as Rypien found tight end Alec Dhaenens for a 13-yard touchdown. On the same series long snapper Tanner Carew began limping after taking an illegal hit below the knee while covering a punt.
