Inside the Numbers

October 15, 2017

There are always two numbers we have to start with after reviewing a game. 

Final Score: 49-7 and record, which is 4-3. It's a hard pill to swallow after Oregon started the season 3-0 to now look at 4-3. But we sorta knew that would be the case even before the season started just by looking at the schedule. You could make a case Oregon could/should be at 5 wins, but we are really just starting to split hairs. And we're also not accounting for 2.5 games without Justin Herbert running the offense.

So with all of that said, as we're well aware by now, here are a few of the top stats from Oregon's loss to Stanford.

504 - Total yards by Stanford. If Oregon was going to be in this game at any point, they were going to need the defense to play big. 

6.4 - Average yards per rush for Oregon. Stanford averaged 6.0, but the Ducks were better per rush Saturday night.

33 - Net yards passing. Yep.

37:17 - Time of possession for Stanford. Compared to Oregon's 22:43. That's a long time for a defense to defend.

9 for 101 - Penalties for Oregon. By contrast, Stanford had 2 for 15.

0 - Sacks by Oregon.Stanford had 2 for a 9 yard loss. 

5 for 6 - Stanford in the red zone. Oregon was 1 for 1. 

3 for 8 - Burmeister's passing line. Alie was 2 for 5. By contrast, Stanford's QB's were 21 for 28.

2 - Oregon had 2 receivers tied for the most catches at 2. (Schooler and Benoit) Stanford had 5 receivers with 2 or more catches.

9 - Total tackles by Jimmie Swain who trailed only Troy Dye and his 10 tackles.
