Oregon HC Willie Taggart said that freshman CB Thomas Graham has "made some corrections (since the spring) and that was great to see."

Graham (5'10/173) has been one of the top freshman performers in the country, having logged 14 tackles, two interceptions and two passes defended in three games. Said Taggart, "Highly competitive when playing the game, very smart and did it consistently (from spring practice onward). I’m just proud he’s being consistent, and knowing he can only get better is good." Graham ranked as Rivals' No. 127 overall prospect in the 2017 cycle and has been comped to former Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller due to his spacial awareness on the field, as well as his aces closing speed.

Oregon HC Willie Taggart is hopeful that senior WR Charles Nelson (lower-leg) can return for Saturday's game against Arizona State.

"Hopefully he’ll be back here soon and be ready to go," Taggart said. Nelson was carted off the field with the injury against Wyoming on Saturday. Nelson leads the team with 15 catches for 243 yards. He's also run for a score.
Sep 19 - 2:57 PM

Oregon senior RB Royce Freeman rushed for 157 yards and three touchdowns on 30 carries in Saturday's 49-13 dismantling of Wyoming.

Freeman scored from one and three yards out in the first quarter and added another one-yard touchdown in the second quarter to help the Ducks sprint out to a dominating 42-10 halftime lead. The 6-foot, 229-pounder has performed like a true Heisman contender this season, rushing for at least 150 yards and two touchdowns in all three of Oregon's games to date. He has already found the end zone nine times. He'll try to keep up all this awesomeness in a road date with Arizona State next weekend.

Oregon Senior WR Charles Nelson was carted off the field with what appears to be a lower-leg injury against Wyoming on Saturday.

The Ducks first tried to give Nelson crutches, but he ended up leaving on a cart. He was Oregon's leading WR in the first two games with 13 catches and 216 yards with a touchdown.
Sep 16 - 8:23 PM

ESPN's Kyle Bonagura calls Oregon sophomore Justin Herbert "the best quarterback on the field" for Saturday's contest between the Ducks and Wyoming.

Obviously, Oregon is facing Josh Allen, who received a ridiculous amount of buzz this offseason thanks to his big-armed throws outside of structure, among other reasons. Herbert has been outstanding this season, completing 78 percent of his passes along with four touchdowns and one interception. Allen needs a bounce back performance.

Oregon four-star 2018 verbal CB commit Verone McKinley said that he is "100%" committed to the Ducks.

McKinley (5'10/17) hopes to check out Nebraska/Rutgers (September 23) and LSU/Texas A&M (November 25), but he insisted that he is still strong with the Ducks despite a little bit of a wandering eye. The Cornhuskers are looking like the team most likely to swipe him away from Eugene should he have a change of heart. Rivals' No. 31 cornerback prospect in the 2018 cycle, McKinley's edge comes not in a huge athletic advantage over his competition, but more in an innate feel for defensing passes and a keen eye for the field.

Oregon senior WR Charles Nelson had eight catches for 117 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win over Nebraska.

A huge beneficiary of Darren Carrington's dismissal, Nelson has taken advantage by leading the Ducks with a 13-216-1 line across Oregon's first two games. Oregon has an interesting matchup with Wyoming on deck.
Sep 12 - 1:30 PM

NFL Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline named Oregon senior RB Royce Freeman a "week two riser" after his big game against Nebraska on Saturday.

"The Nebraska defensive line was expected to be one of the strengths of the defense yet Freeman mercilessly shredded them," Pauline said. In two games, Freeman has rushed for 303 yards on 52 carries and has scored six touchdowns. He's not only improving his draft stock, he's positioning himself to be a Doak Walker candidate. He gets a tasty matchup with Wyoming this Saturday.
Sep 11 - 7:26 PM

Oregon sophomore QB Justin Herbert completed 25-of-33 passes for 365 games, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 42-35 win over Nebraska.

Lovely work by Herbert, one of the Pac-12's most promising young gunslingers. If we are to nitpick, the Oregon offense essentially died in the second half of Saturday's contest -- they did not score after halftime, which allowed Nebraska to mount a too-close-for-comfort comeback attempt over the final two quarters. Herbert and the Ducks will look to improve to 3-0 when they tango with Wyoming next weekend.
Sep 9 - 8:39 PM

Oregon senior RB Royce Freeman rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries in Saturday's 42-35 win over Nebraska.

Freeman posted a down year in 2016, rushing for 945 yards in 11 games, but all indications early this season have him crashing his way back to his old, Heisman-contending ways. On Saturday, the 6-foot, 230-pound senior had himself a pair of short touchdown runs in the first and second quarters. In just two games this season, Freeman has rushed for 303 yards and six touchdowns. He should be able to run all over Wyoming in next weekend's contest.
Sep 9 - 8:33 PM

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reports that the kickoff times in the Oregon/Nebraska and Oregon State/Minnesota games will not be shifted due to hazardous air quality.

There was some concern that, due to wildfires in the state of Oregon, these two games were in danger of being moved. The air quality has improved over the course of the week, though, and it looks like they will kick as originally scheduled. Barring an unexpected change, Oregon and Nebraska will boot off at 4:30 EST, while Oregon State and Minnesota will kick at 10:00 EST.
Sep 8 - 6:51 PM

Oregon freshman WR Johnny Johnson ran with the starters during Wednesday's practice.

Johnson caught two passes for 39 yards in his college debut against Southern Utah, including a 37 yard reception. The Ducks have Nebraska on the schedule next followed by Josh Allen's Wyoming team.

Sep 7 - 9:42 AM

The Saturday contests between Oregon/Nebraska and Oregon State/Minnesota could see adjusted kickoff times or even shifted game-dates due to poor air quality as result of regional wildfires.

Oregon will host Nebraska for a 4:30 EST kickoff on Saturday, while Oregon State and Minnesota is set to kick off at 10:00 EST in Corvallis. The air quality in much of the state of Oregon has hit the "hazardous" range, where it could potentially be harmful with long exposure. At this juncture, it's just a matter of wait-and-see. If the kickoff times or dates are changed, we'll pass along word as information becomes available.
Sep 5 - 12:59 PM

Oregon senior RB Royce Freeman ran for four touchdowns and 150 yards on 23 carries in a 77-21 victory over Southern Utah on Saturday.

This was way too easy for Freeman. The 6-foot, 230-pound running back could have had a record-setting day if Taggart wouldn't have called off the dogs early. His first two touchdowns came in the second quarter, and he picked up two more in the third with the game well out of hand. As long as Freeman is healthy, he's going to put up monster numbers in Willie Taggart's offense. He'll get Nebraska next in a game that should be a lot of fun to watch, assuming you like watching touchdowns.
Sep 3 - 12:27 AM

Oregon sophomore QB Justin Herbert completed 17-of-21 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown in a 77-21 victory over Southern Utah.

Herbert (6'6/225) also ran four times for 12 yards. To say that the Southern Utah defense struggled to contain the Ducks is quite the understatement. Herbert had his choice of open receivers all day, and the only reason he didn't have a bigger day is because it would have been uncouth to leave him in the game. His touchdown was a 20-yard pass to Jacob Breeland with 10:18 left in the first quarter and gave the Ducks a 14-7 lead. We'll have a much better opportunity to see how much he's improved when Oregon hosts Nebraska next Saturday.
