NCAA Football Highlights: Oregon 46 – Michigan St. 27


Royce Freeman, R. J. WilliamsonEUGENE, OR – Trailing by nine points early in the third quarter, Oregon ripped off 28 unanswered points to defeat Michigan State 46-27 in a battle of top-ten teams on Saturday at Autzen Stadium.

Mariota was 17 for 28 for 318 yards and three TDs on the night. He also rushed for 42 yards on nine carries.
