DUCK SOUP: Of course, when fans think offense, they think of Oregon.
The Ducks put up crazy numbers again in their 62-51 road win against Southern California.
Kenjon Barner set the school single-game rushing record with 321 yards _ the most ever by a USC opponent and fourth-most in Pac-12 history.
Oregon’s 730 total yards broke the previous school record of 720 in a 72-0 win over New Mexico in 2010. The 730 yards and 62 points also were the most ever surrendered by the Trojans.
SPEAKING OF OFFENSE: Tennessee and Troy combined for 1,439 yards _ the most ever in a game involving a Southeastern Conference team. The previous record was 1,329 yards, set in 1997 by Tennessee and Kentucky.
The Volunteers beat Troy 55-48. The 103 combined points were the fourth-most in a regulation game in SEC history.
Tennessee’s 718 yards were the most in the SEC this season.
FIRST-QUARTER STREAK ENDS: Penn State was the last team in the Bowl Subdivision to surrender points in the first quarter.
The streak lasted 122 minutes, 1 second of elapsed first-quarter time. It ended when Purdue kicked a field goal 2:01 into Saturday’s game. Penn State won 34-9 on the road.
The Nittany Lions go into their game at Nebraska having outscored opponents 76-3 in the first quarter and 137-33 in the first half.
