If you've ever watched an Oregon football game, you don't need a playbook to recognize some of the go-to plays used by the Ducks' high-flying offense.

While the offense has shown the ability to successfully move the ball in any situation, it's the four or five bread-and-butter plays that truly put the defense on its heels.

What makes this more impressive is the fact that much of the defensive game-planning is likely geared toward stopping these plays, and yet, the Ducks have continued to run one of the best offenses in the country.
