Ducks go hunting at Cal

Marcus Mariota leads the nation in passing.
Santa Clark, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - On Friday night, the sixth-ranked Oregon Ducks will put the California Golden Bears to the test in a Pac-12 Conference clash at the brand new Levi's Stadium, home of the NFL's San Francisco 49ers. After falling to Arizona (31-24) at the beginning of the month, Oregon has rallied with convincing wins over UCLA (42-30) and Washington (45-20). Last weekend's victory over the Huskies propelled the Ducks to No. 6 in the national rankings, and has many slotting them back into the College Football Playoff picture. They are also right in the mix for the Pac-12 title, with a 3-1 mark against league foes. What more can be said about Marcus Mariota? The Ducks' signal caller has been easily the best all-around quarterback in the Pac-12, if not the country. He has thrown for 1,957 yards and 19 touchdowns on 70.2 percent passing, all while avoiding a single interception in 188 pass attempts.  Full Story
