EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - No more rookie excuses for Thomas Tyner. Oregon's sophomore running back is ready to live up to the expectations that were heaped on him when he joined the Ducks last year.
As a true freshman Tyner was third on the Ducks with 711 yards rushing, and he scored nine touchdowns. He steadily improved and had a breakout in the Civil War rivalry game against Oregon State, with 22 carries for 140 yards and a score in Oregon's 36-35 victory.
The Ducks finished the season 11-2 with a victory over Texas in the Alamo Bowl. This year they're ranked No. 3 in the nation heading into the opener Aug. 30 at home against South Dakota.
Tyner says he's ready, having matured as a player since last season.
