Player of the Game
Oregon's LaMichael James rushed for 156 yards on 25 carries to help the Ducks control the game with their efficiency even though they didn't control time of possession.
Play of the Game
After Washington closed to 24-17 and Husky Stadium was buzzing, the Ducks faced third-and-nine early in the third quarter. Washington brought a blitz that was picked up and allowed Darron Thomas time to find tight end David Paulson over the middle for a 34-yard gain.
It took Oregon just 2 ½ minutes to take all the air out of Husky Stadium in the third quarter. The Huskies scored to keep it close at 24-17, but the Ducks went 70 yards in six plays to get back in total control at 31-17.
Time of possession is usually a key stat, and the Huskies having a 35:59 to 24:01 advantage would be key. But Oregon makes such productive use of the time it does have the ball that it controlled the scoreboard all night.
By the Numbers
4 Timeouts in the final second of the first half. The first by Oregon, then three in a row by Steve Sarkisian and Washington in the successful attempt to ice Oregon kicker Alejandro Maldonado who was woefully short from 45 yards out.
6 Washington quarterback Keith Price was sacked six times, including one hit that knocked him out of the game for one play.
18 The Ducks have won 18 consecutive conference games, which is the longest streak in the Pac-12.
28 Of Oregon's 51 offensive drives resulting in touchdowns, 28 have taken two minutes or fewer and 11 have lasted under a minute.
30 Oregon coach Chip Kelly won his 30th victory with the Ducks.
357-169-21 UW's record in Husky Stadium.
3,657 Polk is second on the UW career rushing yards list with 3,657 yards, he needs 449 to surpass Napoleon Kaufman as the Huskies' all-time rushing leader.
Paulson plays big
Paulson, the Auburn product and Oregon tight end, has made the most of the three games he's played against Washington in his career. He had three catches for 65 yards and a touchdown on Saturday, improving his career numbers against the Huskies to eight catches for 165 yards.
"You don't expect the backup quarterback to come off the bench and drop a 53-yarder on you, but maybe the last name does mean something." — Oregon coach Chip Kelly, on UW backup quarterback Nick Montana's one fourth-quarter play.
