EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Marcus Mariota threw for 169 yards and two touchdowns and the Oregon offense looked as potent as ever in the Ducks’ first spring game under new coach Mark Helfrich.
Bralon Addison had eight catches for 136 yards, Mariota completed 13-of-15 passes and the White team defeated the Green team 65-10 Saturday.
Oregon went strictly with an offense (white) vs. defense (green) format because of nagging injuries piling up.
The scoring system heavily favored the offense, admitted Helfrich, the former offensive coordinator who took in mid-January when Chip Kelly left for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Still, the offenses put up nine touchdowns and 802 yards up against a defense that essentially knew what was coming.
