Oregon Held Off Nebraska 42-35

Oregon Holds Off Huskers

And Willie Taggart's team still escaped with the win, and a 2-0 start.

There were moments where it felt like Riverdale High.

Lee threw this ball where only Pierson-El could get it. Pierson-El juggled the ball for a second and used the OR defensive back to help come up with the slick grab.

Sophomores Dillon Mitchell and Brenden Schooler also had a touchdown grab for Oregon. Defensively Nebraska is going to have to play considerably better in the secondary, if they give up that kind of yardage to OR it's going to be a long day.

Riley listed Autzen Stadium among the five "toughest environments I've coached in", a list that also included B.C. Place from his time in the Canadian Football League and the Superdome and Arrowhead Stadium in the NFL.

Despite holding OR to 157 yards of offense and zero points in the second half, Nebraska lost to the Ducks 42-35 in Eugene, OR after a comeback bid.

In the locker room, Taggart reminded the Ducks that Josh Rosen led the Bruins back from a 34-point deficit to stun the Aggies 45-44 at the Rose Bowl.

Lee directed two scoring drives, sandwiched around a three-and-out by the defense, to start the second half.

"I'm not going to lie, I thought about it", Taggart said of experiencing the agony of an epic collapse.

Nebraska head coach Mike Riley summarized OR on Monday as "lots of yardage, lots of points".

"It says we can go out and make plays when we need to". "Coach mentioned that (UCLA-Texas A&M game), but the defense didn't pay attention".

"They set everything up with the run game", Leavitt said. Keep in mind that he coached in the Pac-12 for years with the Civil War rival Oregon State Beavers.

Amadi's clinching interception came after linebacker Jonah Moi tipped the pass that turned out to be Lee's fourth interception. This week, OR was up 42-14 on Nebraska at the half and almost blew its lead. "We've got to be better".

"We've been working all during camp with noise and two-minute drills", he said.

· Bryant rushed 13 times for 81 yards on first down in the game. The current Tennessee Titans starter was photographed in a foreshadowing Heisman pose during Oregon's blowout win in 2014, which was Riley's final game in Corvallis.

#7 Washington 63, Montana 7: Dante Pettis weaved his way 67 yards for the seventh punt return touchdown of his career, and Jake Browning threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns for the host Huskies (2-0).

"He is special", Taggart said. He ranked second on the Ducks with seven tackles against the Cornhuskers.

Nebraska then scored on each of it's first two 3rd quarter drives with touchdown passes from Tanner Lee to Stanley Morgan Jr. Tony Brooks-James contributed 32 yards in nine carries.

Borrowing a phrase from friend Jim Harbaugh when he was hired, Taggart said he'd require his staff and players to attack each day with an "enthusiasm unknown to mankind". "That's all I mentioned to them". "I thought those guys did a great job handling adversity".

Update: (7:07 p.m.): Tanner Lee's arm was hit as he threw it and OR comes away with its fourth interception. If we don't get them, it's hard to win a ballgame. "We want to have fun and have a lot of energy". "He wants us to enjoy playing football, not to be uptight".

Most new coaches don't have the luxury of inheriting an underclassman quarterback with star potential.
