Final Score: Green 16, White 0
Oregon reached the property limits of the promise land last season, only to find a sign that said “No Ducks Allowed”. With only three months to recover from that disappointing ending, many expected Oregon to come out a little sluggish this spring. This was hardly the case.
LeMichael James didn’t miss a beat from last year’s astonishing season. While he only carried the ball three times, on his final carry, he broke off a 67-yard touchdown run, reminding the world why Oregon is once again a National Championship contender.
While Darron Thomas didn’t put up spectacular numbers, he managed the game properly and came out with his first spring game win in three tries.
The first team defense pitched a shut-out for the Green squad, collecting two sacks, nine tackles for a loss, a fumble recovery, and an interception.
Sophomore defensive tackle Wade Keliikipi made the biggest splash in Oregon’s spring game, rattling off six tackles, two sacks, one TFL, and a broken up pass.
