THE SERIES
• Saturday’s game marks the 115th meeting of the Ducks and Beavers in the Civil War, the longest-running college football rivalry west of the Rocky Mountains.
• The Ducks hold a 58-46-10 advantage in the all-time series and have a 26-9-1 (.736) mark vs. the Beavers since 1975.
• Oregon is 13-7-1 against OSU at Autzen Stadium, having won seven of the past eight meetings in Eugene.
• UO’s 58 wins over the Beavers are the most against any opponent (52 vs. Idaho is next).

QUICK HITS
• Oregon can clinch the Pac-12 North Division and host the inaugural conference championship game with a victory. A loss would give the honor to Stanford.
• Oregon State SR WR James Rodgers scored the eventual winning touchdown in overtime of the Beavers’ last win against the Ducks, a 38-31 result in 2007 at Autzen Stadium. Rodgers’ TD came on a 25-yard fly sweep.
• FR RB De'Anthony Thomas, who holds the UO record for touchdowns by a freshman with 15, is two shy of the record by a first-year Oregon player of 17 by LeGarrette Blount in 2008.
• Oregon’s five 2-point conversions are the most in the FBS.
• De. Thomas is tied for second in the FBS with five all-purpose plays of 60-yards or more, including kickoff returns of 93 and 96 yards - both for touchdowns.
• The Ducks have scored 502 points on the season, eclipsing the 500-point mark for the second straight year and third time overall.
• Last week’s loss vs. USC was the first time an opponent has beaten Oregon when having only one week to prepare since Chip Kelly became head coach in 2009.

HEAD COACH CHIP KELLY
Oregon’s 30th head coach, who in 2009 became the first in Pac-10 history to win an outright conference title in his first season at the helm, followed that feat with a second conference crown while securing the program’s first trip to the BCS Championship Game following the 2010 season. The Manchester, N.H., native guided his team to more wins (22) in his first two years in the Pac-8/10/12 than any coach in conference history. Recognized as Pac-10 coach of the year for the second time in as many seasons, Kelly was named the recipient of five national coach of the year awards last year: AFCA, AP, Eddie Robinson, Sporting News and Walter Camp. He’s overseen the team’s first 12-win season and led the Ducks to a school-record 12-game winning streak. In his first head coaching job at any level, Kelly has a mark of 31-6, 24-2 in Pac-12 play. His .838 overall winning percentage is the highest in school history and his .923 percentage in conference play is the best in Pac-12 history.

RETURN MEN
The 2011 Oregon Ducks return 39 letterwinners, including 13 starters - seven on offense and six on defense. UO also welcomes back every specialist with the exception of holder Nate Costa.

DOUBLE-DIGIT VICTORIES
Oregon is one win away from its fourth straight season (seventh overall) of double-digit victories. The Ducks are sitting on 41 wins since the start of 2008, tying for the most in a four-year period in school history. Last year, UO set a school record for wins at 12.

BACK TO BACK CHAMPS
With consecutive conference crowns the past two seasons, Oregon is attempting to become the second team ever to win three straight outright conference championships, joining USC from 2003-05 (‘04 and ‘05 titles since vacated). Last year, the Ducks became the first Pac-12 squad to win nine league games.

LIGHTNING STRIKES
Of Oregon’s 61 offensive drives resulting in touchdowns, 35 have taken two minutes or less and 12 have lasted 60 seconds or less. UO’s longest drive of the season, in terms of yards, lasted 37 seconds as the Ducks drove 93 yards in three plays on consecutive pass completions of 46, 40 and 7 yards against Missouri State.

RARE LOSS INDEED
Not only did last week’s loss vs. USC end Oregon’s 21-game home winning streak and 16-game Pac-12 winning streak, it marked the first time in Chip Kelly’s tenure as head coach that an opponent defeated the Ducks with only one week to prepare. Oregon’s previous five losses came in season openers at Boise State (‘09) and vs. LSU (‘11), postseason bowl games vs. Ohio State (‘09) and Auburn (‘10), and against a Stanford team coming off a bye week in ‘09.

BOWL BOUND
After picking up their sixth win of the season Oct. 22 at Colorado, the Ducks became bowl-eligible for a seventh straight year. Oregon is one of only ten programs nationally to play in a bowl game in at least 18 of the past 22 seasons.

HOUSE OF LOUD
With standing room only crowds in all six home games thus far, including a stadium and State of Oregon record 60,055 Oct. 15 vs. Arizona State, the Ducks have run their sellout streak at Autzen Stadium (cap. 54,000) to 80 consecutive games, dating to 1999.

KELLY AT AUTZEN
Head coach Chip Kelly made his sideline debut at Autzen Stadium Sept. 12, 2009 (W 38-36 vs. Purdue) after spending the prior two seasons calling plays from a booth high above the field as the team’s offensive coordinator. Since Kelly’s arrival in 2007, the Ducks are 28-4 at Autzen, averaging 45.7 points per home game.

JAMES FINALIST FOR DOAK WALKER
JR RB LaMichael James, the 2010 Doak Walker Award winner, is a finalist for the top running back award again this year. James currently leads the nation with an average of 142.8 rushing yards per game, ranks fourth in all-purpose yards at 179.6 and 11th in scoring at 10.0. Despite missing two games following an elbow dislocation, James has 1,285 rushing yards and 15 total touchdowns through nine games. A junior from Texarkana, Texas, James is averaging a career-best 7.4 yards per carry in 2011 and became the first Duck to score touchdowns rushing, receiving and punt returning in the same game when he accomplished the feat vs. Nevada on Sept. 10. Oregon’s all-time leading rusher with 4,562 yards, James ranks fourth in Pac-12 rushing history in both yards and touchdowns (48). He is bidding to become the third two-time winner of the award, joining Ricky Williams of Texas (1997-98) and Arkansas’ Darren McFadden (2006-07). Wisconsin’s Montee Ball and Alabama’s Trent Richardson are the other finalists for this year’s honor, which will be awarded at “The Home Depot College Football Awards Show” on Dec. 8 at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT) on ESPN.

RICE A RAY GUY FINALST
JR P Jackson Rice is a first-time finalist for the Ray Guy Award, recognizing the most outstanding punter in college football. The junior from Moraga, Calif., leads the Pac-12 and ranks sixth in the nation with a punting average of 45.60 and has been a key contributor for an Oregon squad that ranks second in the NCAA in net punting (41.85). Only 12 of Rice’s 40 punts on the season have been returned and he has placed 16 inside the 20-yard line. Rice’s current average is the second-highest in a single season in UO history, while his career mark of 42.5 yards per punt ranks third all-time at the school. The other finalists for the Ray Guy Award are Ryan Allen of Louisiana Tech and Steven Clark of Auburn. Rice and teammate LaMichael James, a Doak Walker Award finalist, will be present when the winner is announced at “The Home Depot College Football Awards Show” on Dec. 8 at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT) on ESPN.

QUACK MAMBA
With two more touchdowns in last week’s game vs. then No. 18 USC, FR RB De
'Anthony Thomas now has 15 through his first 11 games and ranks tied for the team lead. Nicknamed “Black Mamba” during his standout prep career at Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles, Thomas has already set new UO marks for touchdowns by a true freshman (Derek Loville had 10  - 7 rush, 3 rec - in 1986) and redshirt freshman (LaMichael James scored 14 rushing TDs in 2009), and is two away from LeGarrette Blount’s record for a first-year player of 17 scores. Thomas, averaging 8.4 points per game, currently ranks 25th nationally and first among freshmen (non-kickers) in scoring.

HE ... COULD ... GO ... ALL ... THE ... WAY
FR RB De'
Anthony Thomas has two kickoff returns for touchdowns this season, ripping off a 96-yard score vs. then No. 18 USC on Nov. 19 and a 93-yarder vs. Washington State on Nov. 29. His 93-yard return was tied for the tenth-longest in UO history before the 96-yard effort  - tied for seventh-longest - knocked it out of the top 10. He is tied for second in the FBS with five all-purpose plays of 50-yards or loger and ranks eighth in a single season at Oregon with 1,711 all-purpose yards.

BENNETT’S DEBUT A SUCCESS
FR QB Bryan Bennett made the first start of his career on Oct. 22 at Colorado, leading the Ducks to a 45-2 victory. Bennett passed for 153 yards and two touchdowns and also rushed six times for 69 yards before giving way to SO QB Dustin Haines in the fourth quarter. Over his past three appearances, Bennett has led Oregon to 13 scores on 18 drives (not counting taking a knee to end a half).

ONE FOR THE BOOKS
JR RB LaMichael James set Oregon single-game records for rushing and all-purpose yards in the Ducks’ 56-31 win at Arizona Sept. 24. His 288 yards on the ground eclipsed Onterrio Smith’s 285 at Washington State Oct. 27, 2001, and his 363 all-purpose yards broke Smith’s mark of 342 - also in the game vs. the Cougars. James’ rushing effort tied former Arizona RB Trung Canidate (288 vs. ASU in 1998) for 10th in conference history.

RECORD RUSHER
In less than three full seasons, JR RB LaMichael James has taken every major rushing record in school history and made it his own. His latest accomplishment might also be his most impressive as he became the first UO player to have three 1,000-yard seasons, when he eclipsed the mark at Washington on Nov. 5 in his seventh game of the season, tying his own record for fewest games to reach the mark. He also set a new Oregon record for fewest rushing attempts to gain 1,000 yards, needing only 122 carries. LeGarrette Blount held the previous mark at 137 in 2008.

RECORD RUN
JR RB LaMichael James ripped off the longest run in Autzen Stadium history and second-longest scamper in UO history with a 90-yard touchdown vs. Missouri State Sept. 17. It was the longest run by an Oregon player since Bob Smith went 92 yards for a score vs. Idaho in 1938. Jonathan Stewart held the previous stadium record with an 88-yarder vs. Fresno State in 2007. James also had a 50-yard touchdown run vs. the Bears, becoming the first UO player known to have two TDs of 50-plus in the same game.

RECORD RUN TIMES TWO
JR RB Kenjon Barner had the longest rush in a road game in school history when he ran for an 84-yard touchdown at Colorado on Oct. 22. Overall, Barner’s burst was the eighth-longest at UO. Jeremiah Johnson’s 83-yarder at Oregon State in 2008 was the previous record rush away from home.

AMONG THE PAC-12 GREATS
With 4,562 career rushing yards, JR RB LaMichael James ranks fourth in Pac-12 history. He is just the second back in conference history to surpass the 4,000-mark as a junior, joining USC’s Charles White. White holds the Pac-12’s all-time rushing mark with 6,245 yards.

200-YARD CLUB
Only ten Oregon backs have ever eclipsed 200 rushing yards in a single game, but JR RB LaMichael James has taken the accomplishment to an entirely new level by doing it six times in his career, including three consecutive games earlier this season - both UO records. James became the first Pac-12 player with three straight 200-yard efforts since USC’s Marcus Allen in 1981, and the first FBS player since Tulane’s Matt Forte in 2007.

100-YARD GAMES
It took until the third game before the Ducks had a 100-yard rushing performance, but JR RB LaMichael James did that and then some when he ran for 204 yards vs. Missouri State on Sept. 17. James has added four more games of 100-plus yards since, giving him 23 in 34 career appearances to extend his own school record. JR RB Kenjon Barner has hit the mark four times, including a career-high 171 vs. Arizona State on Oct. 15.

NO DOUBTING THOMAS
With another touchdown pass vs. USC  Nov. 19, JR QB Darron Thomas now has 56 for his career to rank fifth on UO’s all-time list and needs six to tie Danny O’Neil (1991-94) for the school record. The Houston native ranks ninth on UO’s career passing list with 5,118 yards and eighth in total offense with 5,767 yards.

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED
Already the school’s all-time rusher with 4,562 yards, JR RB LaMichael James added the Oregon record for touchdowns - both rushing and overall - after his two-TD effort at Arizona Sept. 24. James now has 48 TDs running the football and 53 overall, eclipsing Derek Loville’s (1986-89) former marks of 42 and 45, respectively. He sits tied for fourth place on the Pac-12 career list for rushing touchdowns.

EXPLOSION PLAYS
After not recording a single play from scrimmage of 25 or more yards in the season opener vs. LSU, the Ducks are back to their big play ways with 52 since. Last season, the Ducks had 57 such plays - an average of nearly 4.5 per contest.

BO KNOWS TOUCHDOWNS
SO LB Boseko Lokombo scored his third touchdown of the season and fourth of his career on Oct. 12 when he intercepted a pass from Stanford’s Andrew Luck and returned it 40 yards for the score. Two weeks earlier, he scooped up a blocked punt and ran 25 yards for a TD vs. Washington State, and against Arizona State on Oct. 15, he turned his first career interception into a 67-yard “pick six”. As a freshman in 2010, the Canadian recovered and returned a fumble for a 32-yard TD at Arizona State.

ALL-PURPOSE BACK
JR RB LaMichael James’ versatility has been on display through his first nine games of the season as he’s racked up yardage rushing (1,285), receiving (180), punt returning (130) and kick returning (21). James’ 1,616 all-purpose yards on the year give him 5,310 for his career, breaking Derek Loville’s (1986-89) previous UO record of 5,223.

YOUNG FOLKS
Five true freshmen got the call to play in the season opener vs. LSU. In order of appearance: RB Tra Carson, RB De
'Anthony Thomas, OL Jake Fisher, TE Colt Lyerla and DB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu. LB Rodney Hardrick saw the field vs. Missouri State and LB Anthony Wallace debuted at Colorado, bringing the total to seven. Last season, five Ducks played as true freshman, but the only non specialists were DT Ricky Heimuli and WR Josh Huff. Through three games, 15 redshirt freshmen and three transfers have also made their UO debuts.

THOMAS TIES TOUCHDOWN MARK
JR QB Darron Thomas’ six touchdown passes vs. Nevada Sept. 10 matched the school record previously achieved by Joey Harrington (vs. Arizona State in both 2000 and ‘01) and Danny O’Neil (vs. Stanford in 1994). Thomas became the first Oregon player with five touchdowns in one half, connecting with five different receivers over the first two quarters.

RATING A RARITY
JR QB Darron Thomas had a passing efficiency rating of 303.05 against Nevada, completing 13 of 19 attempts for 295 yards and six scores. That rating was the fourth highest in college football since 2005 among QBs with at least 15 attempts against FBS competition and highest since Notre Dame’s Jimmy Clausen - also against Nevada - had a 303.66 in ‘09. No Pac-10/12 quarterback has had a more efficient day passing the ball in at least seven seasons.

START ME UP
Eight Ducks made their starting debuts in the season opener vs. LSU. On offense, JR WR Justin Hoffman, FR C Hroniss Grasu and SR RG Ramsen Golpashin got the nod, and on defense, SO DT Taylor Hart, JR DT Isaac Remington, SR LB Dewitt Stuckey, JR LB Michael Clay and FR CB Terrance Mitchell. In Week 2, JR WR Rahsaan Vaughn made his first career start, in Week 3 it was SO FS Avery Patterson and JR LB Kiko Alonso, and Week 8 saw FR QB Bryan Bennett, FR CB Troy Hill and FR RB/WR De
'Anthony Thomas getting their first-ever starts. FR CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu lined up during the first series vs. Washington State in Week 9, SO WR Daryle Hawkins got the call the next week at Washington as SR DE Brandon Hanna did in Week 12, bringing the total number of first-time starters this season to 17.

VS. THE TOP 10
Oregon is 4-3 against the top 10 under Chip Kelly, with two defeats coming in BCS bowl games - vs. No. 8 Ohio State in the 2010 Rose Bowl and No. 1 Auburn in the 2011 BCS Championship - and the other vs. No. 4 LSU in the 2011 Cowboys Classic in Arlington, Texas. UO’s 53-30 win Nov. 12 at No. 3 Stanford was its first against a top 5 team in a regular season road game.

VS. THE TOP 25
The Ducks are 2-2 against top 25 teams this season and 9-5 against ranked opposition in the Chip Kelly era. At home, Kelly’s troops are 7-1 vs. the top 25. Oregon is 2-1 in non-neutral site road games against ranked foes under Kelly. UO’s only loss to a non-ranked team during Kelly’s tenure came at Stanford on Nov. 7, 2009. The Cardinal became ranked the following week as a result.

ESPN COLLEGE GAMEDAY IN EUGENE
ESPN College GameDay produced its weekly college football preview show from the University of Oregon prior to the Ducks’ matchup with No. 18 Arizona State, marking the sixth appearance in Eugene by the immensely popular show which features Chris Fowler, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, Erin Andrews and David Pollack. For the first time, the production originated from campus, taking place on the memorial quad with the Lillis Business Complex as a backdrop. With the win vs. the Sun Devils, UO now owns a 5-1 record when hosting GameDay with the lone defeat coming vs. No. 6 Cal, 31-24, in 2007. Last season, the No. 4 Ducks beat No. 9 Stanford, 52-31. Other home wins in front of GameDay were a 47-20 Halloween upset of fourth-ranked USC in ‘09 (UO was No. 10), a 35-23 win vs. No. 6 Arizona State in ‘07 (UO was No. 4) and a 29-10 upset of No. 6 UCLA in 2000 (UO was unranked).

NON-CONFERENCE SUCCESS
Since 2000, Oregon is 31-6 in regular season, out-of-conference contests, earning notable victories against the likes of Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Michigan (x2). During that stretch, the Ducks are 3-1 against the SEC, 5-2 vs. the Big Ten, 1-1 vs. the Big 12, 3-0 against the Mountain West, 12-2 vs. the WAC, 2-0 against Conference USA and 5-0 vs. FCS sides.

COACHING CONTINUITY
An often overlooked facet of Oregon’s success has been the continuity of its coaching staff. Third-year head coach Chip Kelly, now in his fifth season on staff, is a relative newcomer in Eugene compared to his core group of assistants, who have remained intact over the course of three different head coaches. Running backs coach Gary Campbell is in his 29th year on the Oregon staff, which equals the longest tenure of any Oregon assistant football coach in school history. In addition, offensive line coach and running game coordinator Steve Greatwood enters his 25th season at UO, linebackers coach Don Pellum is in his 22nd campaign, while defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti has spent 19 full seasons at Oregon over three separate stints. Of the dozen schools in the Pac-12, only Oregon and Washington saw no turnover on their respective staffs from 2010 to ‘11.
