OR awards game balls to childhood cancer survivors following win over Nebraska

In just 15 minutes of play, both OR and Nebraska have submitted claims for the mythical Catch Of The Year competition that totally needs to be an actual college football award.
Nebraska head coach Mike Riley summarized OR on Monday as "lots of yardage, lots of points". "I'm not that fired up about all the ticket requests I've got coming, but that's all right". It's pretty neat. I embrace these moments personally. Those things are big for me.
When all was said and done, the Ducks (2-0) had racked up almost 600 yards despite being shutout in the second half in front of a sellout crowd of 58,389 at Autzen Stadium.
During his time with the Beavers, Riley was 1-6 at Autzen Stadium in Civil War rivalry games.
"They're a spread offense", Huskers head coach Mike Riley said Monday, "and hopefully we had a lot of good practice against similar-type stuff". His next trip was a 37-33 loss in 2009 with a Rose Bowl berth on the line.
OR responded with 75-yard touchdown drive that Freeman finished with a 2-yard touchdown run to end the first quarter with the Ducks ahead 21-7.
"It's nothing I can do", said Riley. "I think that's why he was a great player, he took pride in it every single day".
"We've been working all during camp with noise and two-minute drills", he said.
The spread for this game favored the Ducks by 10.5 points. The Ducks would begin at the 25 yardline after a touchback.On the first drive it took just five plays that included a run from Royce Freeman and a scoring pass from Herbert to Brendan Schooler in the back corner of the endzone.
Said Riley, "I think it's attractive, I think it's awesome. I believe in it", Taggart said.
HISTORY: The Huskers won last year's meeting in Lincoln, 35-32.
OR freshman cornerback Thomas Graham Jr. intercepted Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee twice and finished with six solo tackles. "It will be a loud experience, but we'll be ready for it".
On Nebraska's first play from scrimmage, Lee tried to go deep and was picked off by Tyree Robinson, who returned the ball to the Nebraska 20. "There is no guarantee, but it's a better transition than playing against the 4-3 all the time and then going a week getting ready for a 3-4".
Defensive coordinator Bob Diaco has gone on the record, saying that he and his defensive team "don't really talk about statistics". Diaco matched up against new OR coach Willie Taggart in the American Athletic Conference.
Diaco's debut with the Cornhuskers caused some concerns.
"We're not good enough as a football team yet to have all those penalties or turn the ball over and think we're just going to go out and beat a quality opponent", he said. If we don't get them, it's hard to win a ballgame. "We have to tackle a little better".
"The quarterback broke in a year ago", Riley said.
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.
Riley's former boss was in attendance in Columbus; suffice to say, he was excited over the developments. The Huskers answered early in the second quarter, with a quick four-play drive pulling the Huskers within seven again. In some fashion probably a continuation of some of the stuff he has done in his past, so they were hitting on all cylinders the other night. "Lots of yardage and lots of points".
College football is built on a foundation of irrational fanhood and hatred between rivals. "It's not really a matchup between us". Andrews believes that experience can make him a key target, like Westbrook last year and Sterling Shepard the year before.
