Staff Report

It was a bit of a challenge for hardcore fans to follow in the opening two quarters, but the Oregon Ducks prevailed in the way they needed to Saturday to make their case for being relative to any conversation involving national champion.

The Ducks overcame three first-half turnovers and won at Washington State for the first time in six years, overcoming the hosts 29-10 in the second half on the way to a 43-29 win.

Sophomore Tyler Shough threw four touchdown passes in his second start and the Ducks rolled up 581 yards of total offense in the win.

Oregon improved to 2-0 on the season heading into a game with UCLA Saturday.

WSU, which led 19-7 with 17 seconds left in the first half, fell to 1-1.
