Tune in at 9:00 PM ET as Oregon takes on Arizona State. Ryan Kelly will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Hello and welcome to ScoreMobile's ongoing coverage of college football. Tonight we present a PAC-12 and top-25 battle between the Oregon Ducks and Arizona State Sun Devils.
Oregon receives the opening kick off and its returned just shy of the 40.
ORE 2nd down -- Oregon FUMBLES the handoff exchange and the Sun Devils RECOVER.
WOW. A big early turnover for the Sun Devils. They not only take away a possession from the Ducks, but will have prime field position.
It's not all good news for Arizona State though as key defensive lineman Will Sutton, who forced the turnover, is hurt.
AZ ST - 1&10 - Taking over at the 28 and Arizona goes up top right away and it's complete to Kevin Ozier for the TOUCHDOWN.
Wow. What a start. Two plays -- turnover. One play -- touchdown. Talk about best case scenario for the Sun Devils.
Extra point is up and good.
@Daniel.Brady I would generally say no, they cannot. But if they can force a couple turnovers and turn them into scores it will go a long way towards helping in that regard.
Oregon has now lost 8 of their 18 fumbles this year.
Keanon Lowe returns the kick for the ducks and takes it out just about to the 30.
ORE - 1 & 10 - Marcus Mariota with a playfake and then throws deep downfield, but good defending -- maybe a bit earlier -- breaks it up.
ORE - 2 & 10 - Handoff up the middle to Kenjon Barner and HE'S GONE. 71-yards later and Oregon is one the board.
Wow..... what a pace to start this game. There's been exactly 1:12 off the clock.
As they often do, Oregon goes for the 2-point conversion and they get it.
Rashad Ross takes the kickoff about 3 yards deep in the end zone for the Sun Devils and runs it out just past the 20.
AZ ST - 1 & 10 - Iside handoff to Cameron Marshall and it's a nice gain, picking up 15.
AZ ST - 1 & 10 - Another big gainer with the swing pass out to the perimeter, picking up about 15 again.
AZ ST - 2 & 8 - After a QB scramble picking up 2, the handoff goes to DJ Foster and he picks up about 10 and the first down.
AZ ST - 1 & 10 - Handoff to Marion Grice off left tackle and he picks up about 7.
AZ ST - 2 & 3 - Kelly with the playfake and then dumps it off to Grice, but he drops it. He had a lot of open real estate in front of him.
AZ ST - 3 & 3 - Dion Jordan got a really good jump from the right end spot and SACKS Taylor Kelly.
AZ ST - After the sack, the Sun Devils attempt a 43-yard FG and MISS.
ORE - 1 & 10 - The give is to Barner, he cuts back and picks up 8.
ORE - 2 & 2 - Mariota unloads the ball quick the the blitz coming and completes it for about 3 and the first down.
ORE - 2 & 10 - After an incompletion on first down, Mariota keeps it on the option and picks up about 6.
ORE - 3 & 4 - Deanthony Thomas motions from wideout into the back field and he gets the handoff, picks up about 6 and the first.
ORE - 2 & 10 - Thomas was bottled up for minimal gain on first down, but then the gain went to Barner who breaks a good one off the left side for about 15.
ORE - 1 & 10 - Barner is bottled up after a gain of about 2 and he's already closing in on 100 yards rushing.
ORE - 2 & 9 - Mariota looked like he was going to keep it on the option, but then pitches towards Barner after contact and all Barner can do it bat it out of bounds to prevent the turnover.
More injury trouble on the defensive line for the Sun Devils.
ORE - 3 & 7 - The Ducks are stopped a couple yards short of gaining first down yardage, but immediately go into hurry up mode to go for it on fourth down. Before they can snap the ball though, the Sun Devils alertly call timeout.
