Marcus Mariota's Heisman Hopes Continue in Win vs. UCLA
After 42 minutes and two seconds of play, the Oregon Ducks and UCLA Bruins were tied at 14-14. During the final 17 minutes and 57 seconds, Marcus Mariota and the Oregon rushing attack took over, scored 28 unanswered points and led the Ducks to a convincing 42-14 win.
In the end, Mariota remained in the hunt for the Heisman Trophy award.
Mariota was surgical, going 21-of-28 for 230 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions against UCLA's vaunted pass rush. Mariota's eight-yard fourth quarter strike to Bralon Addison created a two-score advantage for Oregon that opened the door for the Ducks to run away with the win.
Mariota continues to be close to flawless, and that's all you need to know about his Heisman campaign.
Mariota has 2,381 passing yards, 20 touchdowns through the air and no interceptions on a completion percentage of 64.0 during Oregon's 8-0 start. He also has 493 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on the ground, picking up a score in all but one game this season: Oregon's win over UCLA.
There's no way to criticize Mariota for tearing apart one of the nation's top defensive units. The 6'4" and 211-pound field general is one of the top Heisman hopefuls, and this game did nothing but help his odds.
Oregon and Mariota continue their perfect season.
