Is there any doubt who is #1?

For those of us longing to see a real offense, last night's Oregon game was a real joy to watch. Keep in mind that UCLA has an above average defense.

32 first downs
only 8 3rd downs
582 total yards - 312 passing and 270 rushing

The Ducks averaged 6.8 yards per rushing attempt
They ran 73 plays but held the ball for 21:29

Basically they did whatever they wanted whenever they wanted.

They scored points on their first 6 possession (5 touchdowns and 1 field goal).

To put it simply it was an incredible performance by a team that emphasizes putting the defense in a bad position and scoring.

Not a bad plan to win.
