By Kyle Kensing, 6 days 8 hours ago
One of the first questions asked of Chris Petersen at his University of Washington introductory press conference: How will you beat Oregon?   "Do we have to start that already?" responded Petersen in his signature tone, so dry that distinguishing where the joke ends and the genuine sentiment can be difficult.   In Seattle, beating the Ducks is no laughing matter.

By Kyle Kensing, 1 week 8 hours ago
Earlier this decade, Oregon became the flag bearer for the Pac-10/12 Conference when it introduced a hyper-charged spin on the hurry-up and spread-option offenses. The 2010s are drawing to close, and the Ducks are back as pace-setters in the Pac — only now, they're doing it with defense.   Oregon is midway through a season that opened with lofty expectations in the hunt for its...
