High-flying Ducks: Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota dominated action at Autzen Stadium by completing 6-of-7 passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns for team Mariasu. One score went to running back Thomas Tyner from 22 yards out. The other covered 45 yards to redshirt freshman wide receiver Devon Allen.

Tyner rushed for 58 yards on 10 carries for Team Mariasu. Team Twifo was led on the ground by redshirt freshman running back Kano Benoit who had 40 yards on four carries.

Team Twifo got on the board late in the fourth quarter when quarterback Taylor Alie threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to redshirt freshman wide receiver Darren Carrington.

Quarterback Damion Hobbs threw a long touchdown to Devon Allen on the last play of the game.

Key sequences: Team Mariasu got on the board first with a 22-yard pass from Mariota to Tyner.

Tyner short motioned out of the backfield to the left of the formation. At the snap he ran down the middle of the field completely uncovered.

Mariota lofted an easy pass that Tyner caught for the touchdown to make the score 7-0.

Team Mariasu’s defense held, forcing a punt. A few plays later, Mariota escaped the pas rush to his right and then threw deep to wide receiver Devon Allen for a 45-yard touchdown to make the score 14-0.

Play of the game: Team Mariasu ran a flea-flicker pass play in the third quarter that resulted in Lockie throwing a 41-yard touchdown pass down the middle to wide receiver Austin Daich to make the score 21-0.
