Oregon head football coach Chip Kelly addressed reporters outside of the Ducks locker room Saturday night at CenturyLink Field after Oregon ran away from the Washington State Cougars 51-26.
In his post game comments, Kelly gave credit to the Cougars for giving the Ducks their best shot keeping the score close in the first half. However, after the break, Oregon came out and flexed its muscle over the Cougars led by Kenjon Barner’s 195 yard – 4 touchdown scoring effort and a defense that notched 7 quarterback sacks and 4 pass breakups.

As the weekly national polls once again reflected Oregon as the No. 2 team in the country, college football experts are waking up Sunday morning to the thought that this Duck defense might be for real.
Oregon ( 5-0 / 2-0 ) held off a valiant first half effort by Washington State ( 2-3 / 0-2 ) on Saturday night in Seattle beating the Cougars 51-26.
Whoever believed the Washington State Cougars would simply roll over and quiver at the site of the No. 2 Oregon Ducks was quite mistaken.
First year head coach Mike Leach and his feisty Cougars gave Oregon everything ( and more ) they could handle in the first half but ultimately beat Washington State 51-26 in front of 60,929 fans at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
