The 4th down fail on the first drive followed by the ducks marching down field for 7 set the table for the whole damn game. They kicked ass on both lines and those drives fired up the ducks and deflated the Utes.
The other play I believe was huge was the no-call on the first targeting hit on Huntley. I would like to hear the explanation of that call. Huntley was in the grasp, defenseless and going down. The duck lowered his head and hit with the crown to side of Huntley’s head. If that wasn’t targeting, I have no understanding of the rule. I think the Utes may have gained some momentum if the duck had been ejected.
All said though, congratulations to Oregon. They played a great game.
