Rapid Reaction: Oregon fades during second half, falling to the Huskies 38-3

Last week against Utah, the Ducks ended their second-half woes, scoring 24 points in the second half alone. Tonight, against the northern-rival Washington Huskies, Oregon reverted back to its old ways, not scoring any points during the second half to lose, 38-3, in Seattle.

Key Plays

— Ducks convert three third downs on the opening drive, capped off by a 30-yard field goal. Oregon leads 3-0.

— 45-yard field goal is no good from Washington’s Tristan Vizcaino after Ducks defense holds Huskies following a 46-yard Jake Browning pass.

— Vizcaino makes up for his earlier miss with a 34-yard field goal to tie the game at 3-3.

— Dante Pettis scores on a 64-yard punt return, breaking the NCAA record for punt-return touchdowns with the ninth of his career. It’s also his fourth of the season, and it extends Washington’s lead to 10-3.

— Myles Gaskin cuts through the Ducks’ defense to score on a 34-yard run to give the Huskies a 17-3 lead.

— Pettis strikes again. He connects with Browning on a 47-yard touchdown reception.

— Lavon Coleman catches a 31-yard touchdown pass to put Washington up 31-3.

— Salvon Ahmed runs for a 58-yard touchdown to extend the Huskies’ lead even more, Washington up 38-3.
