Ducks pull away in second half to beat Bruins


EUGENE, Ore. — Byron Marshall rushed for 133 yards and three touchdowns and No. 2 Oregon scored 28 unanswered points to pull away for a 42-14 win over No. 12 UCLA.

UCLA scored two first-half touchdowns off an Oregon fumble and a blocked punt and recovered a fumbled snap deep in its own territory in the third quarter.

But the Bruins punted, and the Ducks — who have beaten their opponents by an average of 40 points this season — took a 21-14 lead on Marshall’s 11-yard touchdown run.

Oregon (8-0, 5-0 Pac-12) was held to its lowest point total of the season, but still won its 10th straight game dating back to last season. Heisman candidate Marcus Mariota threw for 230 yards and a touchdown and De’Anthony Thomas returned to score a touchdown after missing the last three games with an ankle injury.

Brett Hundley threw for just 64 yards with a touchdown pass to Thomas Duarte and also ran for a score for the Bruins (5-2, 2-2), who have lost two in a row after falling at Stanford last week.
