Postgame Notebook – Oregon vs. Nicholls, Aug. 31, 2013

• The Ducks had 772 yards of total offense, elcipsing the previous record of 730 set at USC in 2012.

• Oregon had three players rush for 100 or more yards for the first time in school history: JR RB De'Anthony Thomas (18-128), SO RB Byron Marshall (8-124) and SO QB Marcus Mariota (5-113). It was the fourth such effort of Thomas' career and second for both Marshall and Mariota.

• Mariota has now passed for at least one touchdown in all 14 games he has played at Oregon.

Mark Helfrich won his first game as Oregon’s head coach. All told, UO head coaches are 20-8-3 in their debut games, but Helfrich is just the second of the past eight to win his inaugural effort, joining Mike Bellotti in 1995. The Ducks’ 66 points were the most in any UO head coach’s opening game.

• SR WR Josh Huff had 118 receiving yards on five catches - the third 100-yard effort of his career.

• Redshirt freshmen quarterbacks Jeff Lockie (rushing) and Jake Rodrigues (passing) each recorded the first TD of their careers.

• Four true freshman saw action for Oregon: OL Cameron Hunt, TE Johnny Mundt, DE Torrodney Prevot and K Matt Wogan,

• Oregon had six sacks by six different players and eight TFLs by eight different defenders.

• With 12 points (2 TDs), Thomas jumped Ahmad Rashad (FKA Bobby Moore, 1969-71) and Gregg McCallum (1988-91) for fifth on the UO career list with 230 points. He now ranks fourth in all-time TDs (38) and eighth in all-purpose yards (4,122).

Derrick Malone had a career and game-high 11 tackles.

• Marshall's 49-yard TD was the longest run of his career.

• The seven rushing touchdowns by the Ducks tied an Autzen Stadium record, achieved three times previously.

• Oregon's Autzen Stadium sellout streak was extended to 90 straight games with a standing room crowd of 57,769.
