The 2014 Oregon Ducks football team represented the University of Oregon in the 2014 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The team was led by second-year head coach Mark Helfrich and played their home games at Autzen Stadium for the 48th straight year. They were a member of the Pacific-12 Conference in the North Division.

The Oregon Ducks finished the season with 13–2 overall and 8–1 in Pac–12 play. The Ducks won the Pac-12 North Division for the second time since the division's creation in 2011, advancing to the Pac-12 Football Championship Game, where they defeated the Arizona Wildcats 51–13. The Ducks played in the inaugural College Football Playoff, netting a berth in the 2015 Rose Bowl semifinal game, where they defeated the Florida State Seminoles 59–20, advancing to the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship game facing Ohio State. This was Oregon's second-ever national championship game appearance (their first was the 2011 BCS National Championship Game, in which they lost to Auburn. They were defeated in the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship by the Ohio State Buckeyes by a score of 42–20. The Ducks finished the season as consensus national runners-up behind the national champion Buckeyes and ahead of Peach Bowl victors TCU.

Previous season[edit]

Summary[edit]

The Ducks had high hopes coming off of a 12–1 (8–1) season a victory in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl, many considered them a contender for the BCS national championship game the following year.[1] However, these hopes were thrown into question shortly after their Fiesta Bowl victory, on January 16, 2013. Head coach Chip Kelly announced that he had agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles to become their new head coach after several disappointing seasons under Andy Reid; Kelly brought Oregon defensive line coach Jerry Azzinaro along with him to Philadelphia.[2][3]

As they have done in every case of hiring a new head coach since 1995, the Ducks hired from within and promoted fourth year offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mark Helfrich to the head coach position. Along with the head coach change, wide receivers coach Scott Frost was promoted to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Duke wide receivers coach Matt Lubick and Arizona Cardinals defensive line coach Ron Aiken were hired to fill their respective positions on Oregon’s staff.[4][5][6]

Oregon would start the season ranked[7] third behind Ohio State and Alabama, and would rise to second after their first game, a 66–3 win over Nicholls State in Week 1. They would continue their winning ways, posting double-digit wins over Virginia, Tennessee, California, Colorado, Washington, Washington State and UCLA, and eventually found themselves in a duel with Florida State over the number 2 spot in the BCS poll, with Alabama at number 1. The wheels came off though, as they did the year previously, against Stanford, losing 26–20 on the road. The Ducks would rebound with a home win over Utah, but lose again at home to Arizona, the Ducks’ first loss to an unranked foe since 2009.

Sitting at 9–2 (7–2) and out of the BCS bowl picture for the first time in 4 years, Oregon had the Civil War left to play. Both Oregon and Oregon State were coming off of loses and had no major spoils to play for. The game ended up being a true classic, Oregon would eventually come from behind in a back and forth fourth quarter and score a touchdown (and fail to convert the 2-point attempt) with 29 seconds left to win 36–35.

Finishing the regular season at 10–2 (7–2) Oregon had extended winning streaks in two major rivalries, making it 10 years in a row against Washington, and 6 years in a row against Oregon State, as well as achieving a sixth consecutive 10-win season and an undefeated season at home for the first time in three years.

On December 8, 2013 the Ducks were invited to play in the Alamo Bowl against Texas in what would be Texas head coach Mack Brown and Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti's last games before retiring. Oregon won the Alamo bowl 30–7, tying a school record set from 1999 to 2001 for consecutive bowl wins at three, with rookie head coach Mark Helfrich becoming the first Oregon head coach to go to and win a bowl game in his rookie year (Rich Brooks won his first bowl game, after 12 years as head coach at Oregon, Mike Belloti and Chip Kelly each went to and lost a bowl game in their first years). Oregon finished the season at 11–2, only their fifth season with 11 or more wins in 118 years of football.[8][9][10][11]

Departing players[edit]

Following the 2013 season there was a whirlwind of speculation in Eugene about the futures of several star players eligible to leave early for the NFL. The first announcements came from starting quarterback Marcus Mariota (RSo.) and starting center Hroniss Grasu (Jr.), declaring that they would stay at Oregon in order to finish their degrees.[12] Later in the week, defensive leaders Tony Washington (RJr.) and Derrick Malone (Jr.) announced that they too would be staying in Eugene to finish their education.

The first Duck to declare that he would be leaving school early and pursuing a career in the NFL was starting cornerback Terrance Mitchell (Jr.), many considered it to be a poor decision, and that another year in college would boost his potential draft status. Nonethelesss he was drafted in the seventh round by the Dallas Cowboys and did not end up making the final roster, he was signed by the Chicago Bears as a member of their practice squad prior to the 2014 NFL season.[13]

Following the surprise announcement from Terrance Mitchell, the most anticipated announcement finally came from star running back De'Anthony Thomas (Jr.), declaring that he will forgo his senior year and enter the NFL Draft. Few people were surprised by this decision after recording three solid years as a featured part of the ducks offense, setting records in the Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl. He would go on to be drafted in the fifth round by the Kansas City Chiefs and would make the final 53-man roster, showing off his value to the team in his first NFL appearance, returning a punt 80-yards for a touchdown.[14]

The final announcement came from Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (Jr.) declaring that he would stay at Oregon in order to earn his degree and hone his skills as a cornerback.[15]

Other notable departures due to graduation included record breaking receiver Josh Huff who would be drafted by Oregon's former head coach Chip Kelly to be a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, as well as three starting defensive tackles Taylor Hart, Ricky Havili-Heimuli and Wade Keliikipi.

Preseason All-Americans[edit]

Oregon had three players selected as Preseason All-Americans going into the season. Marcus Mariota was largely recognized on the second team of those organizations which published preseason lists. Hroniss Grasu and Ifo Ekpre-Olomu were recognized as unanimous Preseason All-Americans, with Grasu being selected to the first team of every publication.

Spring football[edit]

Marcus Mariota surveys the field on a pass play during the first quarter of the 2014 Oregon Duck Spring Game.

On May 3, 2014, Oregon capped off its spring football camp with a scrimmage at Autzen Stadium that was open to the public and broadcast live on the Pac-12 Network. The Monday before the game, team captains were selected followed by a draft. Quarterback Marcus Mariota and center Hroniss Grasu captained team "Mariasu" which was coached by the offensive coordinator Scott Frost and the other offensive coaches. Defensive end Tony Washington and cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu captained team "Twifo" which was coached by defensive coordinator Don Pellum and the other defensive coaches; head coach Mark Helfrich observed the game from the field.[40][41]

As has been the case for the past several years, the spring game was dedicated to the United States Armed Forces, specifically local units that include 6th Engineer Support Battalion in Portland, Oregon and the Oregon National Guard. Service-members were given special seating at the 50-yard line, ran onto the field with the players and were given the jerseys worn by the players immediately following the game. In between the first and second quarters a group of soon-to-be soldiers took the oath of enlistment in the west end-zone and at half-time an American Flag was presented by the Oregon National Guard to the University President Michael R. Gottfredson.[41]

In addition to honoring the troops, the spring game is used as a means to boost donations to Food for Lane County, a local non-profit food bank. There is no monetary cost of admission to enter the game, however a donation of 3 non-perishable food items per person is encouraged. Food for Lane County has reported donations just short of sixty thousand pounds of non-perishable food.[42][43]

Unlike the previous year's spring game, this game was as close to normal football rules as possible. The first half followed all NCAA rules and regulations, with the second half featuring a running clock.

Marcus Mariota led back to back scoring drives to start off the game, throwing touchdown passes to Thomas Tyner and Devon Allen, after that the star quarterback sat out the rest of the game. For the remainder of the first half the defenses of both teams took control, not allowing another score and forcing several turnovers. After the half-time ceremonies team Mariasu got on the board again, this time on the arm of Jeff Lockie throwing to Austin Daich. It took until the fourth quarter for team Twifo to score on a touchdown pass from Taylor Allie to Darren Carrington, team Mariasu would respond with a touchdown pass from Damion Hobbs to Devon Allen, however the play occurred as time expired so no PAT was attempted.[44]

Rankings[edit]

Entering the 2014 season the Ducks were ranked at number 3 in the AP Preseason Poll and number 4 in the Coaches' Preseason Poll, receiving a first place vote in each. After a dominant performance against South Dakota the Ducks remained at number 3 and number 4 in the AP and USA Today polls respectively, but gained first placed votes in each. Following a decisive victory over #7 Michigan State the Ducks rose to second in the AP poll, while remaining fourth in the USA Coaches Poll. Coming out of a week three victory over Wyoming the Ducks maintained their second place slot in the AP poll and rose to third in USA Today Coaches' Poll, earning first place votes in each.

Following their first conference victory the Ducks lost ground in both polls, falling to fourth in the Coaches' Poll and losing 5 five first place votes in the AP poll due to their unconvincing victory over Washington State. The Ducks continued to slide down the polls following a crushing upset by Arizona, falling to twelfth in the AP poll and eleventh in the Coaches'.

Personnel[edit]

Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich returns in his second year as Oregon's head coach following what many have considered to be a disappointing debut season, even though he earned 11 wins, including a bowl game victory, something never before achieved by a first year Oregon head coach.[47] Following the retirement of longtime defensive coordinator & outside linebackers coach Nick Aliotti at the end of the 2013 season Oregon promoted veteran inside linebackers coach and University of Oregon alumni Don Pellum to the defensive coordinator position (he would maintain the inside linebackers coach position).[48] To fill the opening at outside linebackers coach Oregon hired former graduate assistant Erik Chinander who at the time was working for the Philadelphia Eagles.[49]

The Ducks continue to have the longest tenured staff of any college football program in the United States. Six of the ten assistant positions are staffed by men who have coached at Oregon for over ten years, four of whom have over 25 years of experience as Oregon assistant coaches.

In their home opener the Ducks defeated the South Dakota Coyotes 62–13 in their first ever meeting.[53][54] To open the game the Ducks won the coin toss, elected to receive and marched down the field on a 4 play, 74 yard drive lasting 94 seconds, which ended in a 62-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Mariota to Dwyane Stanford, followed by a successful two-point conversion ran in by Taylor Alie.[55] This touchdown was Mariota's 78th overall as a Duck, beating out Joey Harrington for most career combined touchdowns.[55] The Coyotes responded with a 4 and a half minute drive which ended in a 47-yard field goal from Miles Bergner. On the next Oregon drive, the Ducks went 63 yards in 3 plays lasting just over a minute, culminating in a 41-yard touchdown pass from Mariota to Byron Marshall. A two-point conversion was attempted, but nullified due to an illegal formation penalty caused by too many players on the line of scrimmage, putting the game at 14–3. South Dakota would be forced to punt on the next possession, the punt was downed at the Oregon 12 yard line, and pushed back an additional 6 yards due to an illegal blocking penalty. The Ducks responded with a 9 play, 97-yard drive finished off with true freshman Royce Freeman scoring his first touchdown as an Oregon Duck.[55]

South Dakota retained possession from the end of the first quarter into the beginning of the second and would finish their drive with a punt, downed at the Oregon 29-yard line.[55] Oregon couldn't get things going on their first possession of the second quarter and had a 3 and out on a negative running play from Thomas Tyner, two incomplete passes and a punt which was returned to the 50-yard line.[55] South Dakota fought back and put together an 8 play, 42-yard drive culminating in a 25-yard field goal, putting the game at 21–6 with 9:26 left in the half.[55] The Ducks returned the ensuing kick-off to their own 42 yard line and were in the end-zone 5 plays later after a 26-yard run from Freeman.[55] Oregon then forced the Coyotes to punt, taking possession at their own 46 yard line. Byron Marshall started the drive off by breaking free on a 53-yard run, only to drop the ball in celebration on the 1 yard line, the ball went into the end-zone and then out of bounds, causing a touch-back, giving the Coyotes the ball at their own 20 yard line.[55] Oregon's defense then forced the Coyotes to fumble, which Oregon defensive back Dior Mathis recovered.[55] Oregon turned the fumble into points 5 plays later with a touchdown pass from Mariota to Marshall to put the game at 35–6.[55] South Dakota's next drive would be their only drive resulting in a touchdown, they drove the ball 75-yards in 6 plays, finishing with a 3-yard run from Trevor Bouma.[55] The Ducks then recorded the final scoring drive of the first half, going 76-yard on 10 plays, finishing with a 1-yard run from Mariota, only to have the point after attempt fail due to a bad snap.[55] The teams went into the locker rooms at halftime with score at 41–13.[55]

Ahead by 28 points and moving the ball at will the Ducks played many of their backups in the second half.[55] South Dakota was shutout for the entire second half, with Oregon's second string putting together three touchdown drives, a 50-yard punt return by Charles Nelson, a 4-yard touchdown pass from Jeff Lockie to Pharoah Brown and 9-yard run from Kenny Bassett.[55] While they did not score, South Dakota did close out the fourth quarter with a 69-yard 17 play drive lasting just over 9 minutes that at one point was on the Oregon 2-yard line, but ended in a turnover on downs, leaving the final score at 62–13.[55]

In the game, Marcus Mariota passed for 3 touchdowns and 267 yards, leaving him tied with Darron Thomas for career passing touchdowns (66) and 22 yards away from breaking Bill Musgrave's record for career total offense (8,140 yards).[56]

In the first game between non-conference top ten teams in the history of Autzen Stadium, Oregon defeated the seventh ranked Michigan State Spartans 46–27.[57] The Spartans won the coin toss and elected to receive, leading off a series of back and forth punts for the first nine minutes of play.[58] While driving down the field during their third possession of the game, Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook was intercepted at the Oregon 38 yard line by Erik Dargan.[57][58] Oregon turned the interception into points two minutes later off of a hard driven 1-yard run by Thomas Tyner, followed by a two-point conversion pass from Taylor Alie to DeForest Buckner.[58] Michigan State would punt the ball on their next possession, closing out the first quarter with Oregon leading 8–0.[58]

Oregon finished their first possession of the second quarter with a 28-yard field goal from Matt Wogan to put the game at 11–0, but the remainder of the quarter would belong to Michigan State.[58] The Spartans would go on a 24–7 run, scoring points on all four of their second quarter possessions.[58] While the Spartan defense did allow a 70-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Mariota to track star Devon Allen early in the quarter, they forced the Ducks to punt the ball twice in as many possessions, while also getting two quarterback sacks.[58] Going into half time with the score at 24–18 and the Ducks on the ropes, the Spartans looked to be on their way to victory.[58]

Oregon stumbled out of the gate and was forced to punt from their own end zone to start the half, with Michigan State scoring a field goal not long after.[58] However, the rest of the second half would belong to the Ducks, with a commanding defensive performance, Michigan State would not score another point the rest of the game.[58] After the Michigan State field goal, the Ducks and Spartans traded punts, with the Ducks offense looking overwhelmed with the fierce defensive line play from the reigning Big Ten Champions.[58] On their next drive however, Marcus Mariota took over the game for his team, and led the Ducks to scoring drives on their next three possessions.[58]

Going into the fourth quarter, the tables had turned on Michigan State, with the Ducks leading the game 39–27.[58] The stout Duck defense would force a turnover on downs deep in their own territory, but on the ensuing possession Oregon was again forced to punt the ball away, giving Michigan State the ball, down 12 points with nine minutes left to play.[58] The Oregon defense again showed their talent by intercepting Connor Cook again, giving their offense back the ball to close out the game.[58] The Oregon offense then methodically drove the 96 yards in six and a half minutes, converting two third downs and scoring a touchdown on fourth down to all but finish the game at 46–27.[58] The victory improved Oregon's all-time record against the Spartans to 3–2.[59]

During the game Marcus Mariota threw for 3 touchdown passes, improving his career total to 69, breaking the Oregon record previously held by his predecessor Darron Thomas.[57] Mariota also broke the team record for total-offense, previously held by Bill Musgrave.[57] His 318 passing yards extended his career total to 6,297, passing Joey Harrington for fourth in the Oregon record books.

In their final non-conference game of the regular season the Ducks defeated the Wyoming Cowboys in their first meeting.[53] The Cowboys won the coin toss and elected to receive the first kickoff of the game, Wyoming and Oregon traded punts for their first drives. The Cowboys scored on their second possession, an eleven play, 98-yard drive culminating in an 18-yard touchdown pass from Colby Kirkegaard to Tanner Gentry; the Ducks would not score in the first quarter. Going into the second quarter with the ball and the score 7–0 in favor of Wyoming, the Ducks responded to the Cowboys with four unanswered touchdown drives, scoring on 15 and 19 yard runs from Marcus Mariota, a 30 yard run by Byron Marshall and a 16 yard pass from Mariota to Devon Allen. Erick Dargan would intercept Wyoming quarterback Colby Kirkegaard twice during the second quarter, with Oregon turning both interceptions into touchdowns. On the touchdown run by Marshall the Ducks failed to convert the PAT, the teams went to the locker rooms at half-time with the score at 27–7 in favor of the Ducks.

The Ducks continued to put up points, scoring on their first possession of the second half from a 12-yard run by Royce Freeman. For Wyoming's first possession of the second half they turned the ball over after four plays, with Kirkegaard being strip-sacked by Torrodney Prevot, the ball recovered by Christian French. The Ducks again turned a turnover into a touchdown, with Mariota throwing a 5-yard touchdown pass to Johnathan Loyd, his first touchdown as an Oregon Duck football player, to go with his 538 points, 167 rebounds, 368 assists and 118 steals as Oregon's winningest men's basketball player. Wyoming scored in the early minutes of the fourth quarter, bringing the score to 41–14. For the rest of the game the Ducks played most of their backups, and would trade long drives with the Cowboys to run out the clock. Oregon took advantage of their final possession with Kani Benoit running in a 1 yard touchdown to finish off a 15 play, 79-yard drive lasting five and a half minutes. The Cowboys tried to score on their final possession, a 14 play drive going 55-yards and lasting nearly seven minutes, however the Duck defense forced a turnover on downs with ninety seconds to go.

During the game Oregon's offensive line continued to be hampered by the injury bug with left tackle Jake Fisher appearing to suffer a high-ankle sprain, along with the loss of Andre Yruretagoyena during the previous week's win over Michigan State, the Ducks will be forced to start backups at both right and left tackle until both men are healthy.

In their first conference game of the 2014 season the Ducks narrowly defeated the Washington State Cougars in Pullman, WA 38-31. Washington State won the coin toss, elected to receive and were forced into a three-and-out on their first drive.[60] The Ducks came out of the gate sloppily, punting on their first drive gaining negative yardage and allowing Marcus Mariota to be sacked.[60] The rest of the first half was a story of the Cougars scoring after long drives, often doing so by making the Oregon defense look terrible against the pass in the process, and Oregon responding with one or two play scoring drives, often taking less than one minute to complete.[60] By the end of the half the score was tied at 21, with time of possession heavily skewed in the Cougars favor nearly two to one.[60] Washington State appeared to be succeeding at a tried and true method of defeating the Ducks: sustaining long offensive drives and achieving crippling penetration of the offensive line. With backups at left and right tackle, Marcus Mariota had been sacked five times in the first half.[60]

The story of the second half would be markedly different, with the Ducks having made several adjustments on both sides of the ball. Marcus Mariota was now holding the ball for a significantly shorter period of time in the pocket, often only reading two receivers before running out of the pocket or throwing the ball away. This allowed the Ducks to sustain drives going forward and would lead to the Ducks having the edge in time of possession in the second half (nearly two to one, this time in their favor).[60] On defense, the Cougars were still able to go down the field with relative ease, however the Oregon defense forced several turnovers and field goals, shutting out the Cougars in the third quarter, and only allowing one touchdown for the rest of the game.[60] In the third quarter both teams missed relatively short field goals, though Oregon scored on a pass from Mariota to Pharoah Brown following a Washington State fumble, forced by DeForest Buckner.[60]

Going into the fourth quarter ahead 28-21, the Ducks were still very much fighting to maintain ahead of the Cougars. The quarter began with a 30-yard field goal made by Washington State, only to be responded to by a 34-yard field goal from the Ducks.[60] Washington State then drove the length of the field and scored, tying the game again, at 31.[60] Oregon responded with the final scoring drive of the game with a touchdown pass from Mariota to Keanon Lowe, putting the Ducks up by a touchdown with 5:33 to go in the game.[60] After two completions by the Cougars the Oregon defense bowed their necks, not allowing another play of positive yardage, and sacking the Cougars quarterback Connor Halliday on fourth down, giving the Oregon offense the ball, with the lead, and 3:34 on the clock.[60] The Ducks then ran out the clock, and returned home with a hard fought win, and serious questions about their offensive line, and defensive secondary.[60]

By the end of the game much could be said about the quarterback play by both teams, with a combined completion rate over 70%, 765 passing yards, nine touchdowns and zero interceptions. However, the star of the game was Marcus Mariota, completing 21 of 25 passes attempted, for an 84% completion rating, to go with 329 yards through the air and 58 on the ground, and five touchdown passes.[60]

The Ducks extended their lead in the series to 49-36-7 (.571), as well as continuing their current win streak to eight consecutive years.[61] They would travel home facing a bye week in which to work on inconsistencies and heal followed by a Thursday night game against the Arizona Wildcats, a team they lost to in 2013.

In a week that saw 11 of the top 25 teams, including five of the top eight, all undefeated, be upset in conference play, the Ducks were upset for the second straight year by the Arizona Wildcats in the 100th consecutive sell-out of Autzen Stadium.[62][63] The Ducks won the coin toss, elected to receive and were eventually forced to turned the ball over on downs, after having converted a fourth down earlier in their opening drive.[63] The Wildcats capitalized on their opening drive by scoring a 28 yard field goal.[63] The Oregon offense then recorded a three-and-out, but would get the ball back after Reggie Daniels intercepted Anu Solomon on third down.[63] The Ducks and Wildcats then traded punts, with Oregon maintaining possession going into the second quarter with the score at 3-0 in favor of Arizona.[63]

On the second play of the second quarter the Ducks scored on a trick play with running back Royce Freeman lobbing a 26 yard touchdown pass to quarterback Marcus Mariota, his second receiving touchdown as a Duck.[63] The two teams again traded punts, and then traded fumbles, keeping the score at 7-3 going into halftime.[63]

Coming out the locker rooms after halftime the Wildcats scored on a 3 yard run by Nick Wilson.[63] Oregon would respond following a 72 yard drive capped off with a 6 yard touchdown pass from Mariota to Devon Allen.[63] Arizona continued to pressure Oregon offensively, and scored on a 2 yard run by Nick Wilson, regaining the lead with a score of 17-14.[63] The Wildcats then forced a three-and-out by the Ducks and scored again, on a 34 yard pass from Solomon to Wilson, extending their lead to 24-14.[63]

The Ducks maintained possession going into the fourth quarter with a ten point deficit to make up. They would finish their drive with a 21 yard field goal by Matt Wogan, putting the score at 24-17 in favor of Arizona.[63] The Oregon defense then forced a turnover on downs, giving the ball back to their offense, which scored a touchdown on a 9 yard pass from Mariota to Keanon Lowe, evening the score at 24.[63] The Wildcats then drove 71 yards in five and a half minutes, scoring on a 1 yard run by Terris Jones-Grigsby.[63] The Ducks, with just under three minutes to play were driving quickly down the field, converting two first downs, only to be stopped by a strip sack of Mariota by Scooby Wright III.[63] The Wildcats then ran out the clock, sealing their second victory over the Ducks in as many years.[63]

The Ducks maintain their lead the all-time series 24-16 (.600), however, every victory earned by the Wildcats since 2007 has been a major upset of the Ducks with each win coming over an Oregon team ranked in the top ten at the time of the game (2007 #2; 2013 #10; 2014 #2).[64] The main storyline following the game continued to be the Ducks beleaguered offensive line, allowing Mariota to be sacked five times during the game, and unable to effectively run block or fight back against a three man pass rush.[65]

During the game the Ducks wore uniforms with pink numbers and highlights in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to raise money for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.[66] Additionally, during the playing of the National Anthem the Oregon Marching Band paid tribute to a former trumpet player who lost a battle with cancer during the summer.[67]

On December 5, 2014 the Ducks won their 12th Pacific-12 Conference Championship by defeating the Arizona Wildcats, the only team to defeat the Ducks this so far in the season, 51–13 in the 2014 Pacific-12 Football Championship Game. The Ducks snapped a two-game losing streak against the Wildcats, extending their lead in the overall series to 25-16 (.610). Winning this game gives Oregon their 12th win on the year, their fourth 12-win season in the last five years.

In winning the Pac-12 Conference Championship the Ducks all but assured themselves of a berth in the inaugural College Football Playoff, the seeding of which will be announced two days after the game on Sunday December 7, 2014.

During the game, star quarterback Marcus Mariota had another highlight filled performance, throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns, while scoring three touchdowns on the ground. This performance, along with a standout junior season has seen Mariota secure the Pacific-12 Conference records for career total touchdowns (131) and single season total touchdowns (53) as well as the Oregon team records for career total offensive yards (12,289), career passing yards (10,125), career passing touchdowns (101), single season total offensive yards (4,478), single season passing yards (3,783) and single season passing touchdowns (38). It should be noted that as of this writing Mariota, along with breaking every Oregon career and single season record for passing and total offense, he has thrown for just two interceptions. Many in the media have stated that following this dominant win Mariota has guaranteed that he will become the first Heisman Trophy winner in Oregon Ducks history, possibly becoming the first ever unanimous selection for the prestigious award.
