EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - With their speedy offense and tireless defense, the ultimate goal for the second-ranked Oregon Ducks is finding balance.
They've recently shown that both sides of the ball are equally capable.
When Washington State mounted a first-half challenge last weekend in Seattle, Oregon's defense stopped the Cougars from taking the lead before the break, making way for the Ducks' offense in the second half.
The Ducks led by a narrow 23-19 margin at the break then pulled away to score 28 straight, including a touchdown by the defense.
Against Arizona in the conference opener, Oregon led 13-0 at the half then won 49-0. In addition to holding the Wildcats scoreless, the defense pitched in with two touchdowns.
