College football is back, and after a ho-hum 66-3 victory over Nicholls, it's time to grade Oregon's new starters.

How much can you really take from a game that pitted an offensive juggernaut coming off of a second straight BCS bowl win against an FCS team that had compiled just two victories in the past two seasons?

Oregon racked up a school-record 772 yards in the victory, including a whopping 500 on the ground. Marcus Mariota, De'Anthony Thomas and Byron Marshall each eclipsed the 100-yard mark in rushing.

For fans, it was simply a chance to see the Ducks take the field for some meaningful action. But for coaches, players and everyone else looking to get a little more out of Saturday than a nonchalant beatdown, it was about getting a chance to see what this year's crop of young talent can accomplish.

Let's take a look at the new starters on the Oregon Ducks and grade their Week 1 performances.
