It was a rainy, cloudy, grey and chilly day in Eugene, Ore., but Autzen Stadium was raucous and full of energy—in the first quarter. The Pac-12 matchup between Oregon and Colorado may have been over before it even started.
The Buffaloes came into Saturday's game with a 1-6 record (1-3, Pac-12), averaging 18.7 points per game. Some odds pinned the Buffs as 47-point underdogs, a spread the Ducks easily covered.
Oregon put up 28 points in each of the first two quarters, and they would coast to their 11th straight win, dating back to last season. They now stand at 8-0 in 2012.
Oregon reserves were in by the end of the first half, and the Ducks rolled Colorado 70-14.
