Quarterback Marcus Mariota threw five touchdown passes and ran for two more. Oregon will be in Seattle against Washington Saturday… the Beavers had the weekend off; they’ll be in the Palouse against Washington State.
Coming up on the court tonight…
Far West leading Marshfield will be at Siuslaw High School tonight. The Vikings are hoping to avenge an earlier season loss to the Pirates.
