2013 A semifinalist for both the 77th annual Maxwell Award for Collegiate Player of the Year and the Walter Camp Football Foundation Player of the Year award, Oregon's quarterback has totaled 31 touchdowns for the Ducks, throwing for 2,531 yards and 22 TDs, while adding 495 rushing yards and nine more scores. . . Starting all nine games of the season so far, he is considered by many national outlets as a Heisman Trophy candidate, ranking seventh nationally in passer efficiency with a 173.43 rating and leading all quarterbacks in rushing yards per carry, averaging 7.98 . . . A candidate for both the Davey O'Brien Award and the Manning Award, he has thrown for a touchdown in all 22 games of his career, and his 259 pass attempts without an interception this season and 327 overall, dating to last season, are both Pac-12 records . . . Became the first Oregon player since 2005 (Paul Martinez) to be named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week for two consecutive weeks when he picked up the honor after the contests vs. Washington and Colorado  . . . Threw for 327 yards and two touchdowns and ran 57 yards to score another against Washington State . . . Entering the week as a leader on the Heisman watch list by the Heisman Pundit web site and ESPN's "Expert's Poll,"  he navigated around Washington's defense by completing 24-of-31 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns, in addition to 13 attempts for 88 yards and another touchdown (ranking seventh in school history for total offense) to come out . . . Set a modern UO record with seven total touchdowns (5 passing, 2 rushing) during the win over Colorado, surpassing the previous record of six scored by six Ducks, including himself . . . The passing leader covered a career-best 456 yards passing, which contributed to 483 yards of total offense (27 rush) to rank him second in a single game at Oregon during the win over Tennessee . . . During the Virginia contest, he became the first UO quarterback to rush for 100 or more yards in back-to-back games (three times overall) when he finished with 122 yards on four carries, including a 71-yard touchdown run, after completing the feat against Nicholls, where he covered 133 yards on five attempts and saw a career-best of two rushing touchdowns.

The Pac-12 leader finished seventh in the country in passing efficiency (163.23) . . . Led the league in completion percentage (68.45), falling just short of the NCAA freshman record of 69.5 percent (Sam Bradford, Oklahoma, 2007) . . .
