Oregon Football Beats Cal: By the Numbers

October 6, 2019

The morning after any Oregon football win is a good one. This Sunday morning proves no exception.

Last night the Oregon Ducks gritted out a win over the stingy California Golden Bears to send their record to 4-1 and take control of the Pac-12 North. And though the Ducks were held scoreless in the first half for the first time this season, they took advantage of key opportunities in the second half to overcome Cal 17-7. 

Senior quarterback Justin Herbert had difficulty attacking California’s secondary, completing 20-of-33 attempts for 214 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. Not as sharp as usual, Herbert adjusted in the second half and found tight end Jacob Breeland on several key plays, showing a nice ability to adapt to the given circumstances. 

Oregon’s defense, meanwhile, was lights out. They stifled the California offense with pressure at just the right times to compliment a secondary that allowed no opportunity for Cal’s receivers to get open. 

With a win in the books and a shortened week before a Friday tilt against Colorado, here are some numbers that stood out from the win.

32 - Justin Herbert’s streak of consecutive games with a TD pass

2.2 - Yards per rush for the California offense. 

3 - Turnovers for the Oregon offense.

29:10 - Time the Oregon offense was on the field.

25 - Total first downs for the Oregon offense

0 - Conversions on fourth down for the Oregon offense. They attempted to convert fourth down twice.

1 - Justin Herbert INT on the year. 

1 - Idiot rushing the field and taking attention away from the Oregon cheerleaders.

1 - Outstanding tackle by an Oregon football player on an idiot rushing the field.

1 - Night in jail for an idiot rushing the field

87 - yards receiving for tight end Jacob Breeland. It was also his third-straight game of 5 receptions.

4 - Receptions by true freshman wide receiver Mycah Pittman. He converted those 4 catches for 43 yards.

2 - Fumbled by running back Travis Dye. Both were lost. 

2 - Oregon interceptions

7 - Total tackles by Isaac Slade-Matautia. It was the most he’s had in his Oregon career. One of the tackles was a big sack on California quarterback Devon Modster.

2 - Sacks by Kayvon Thibodeaux. 

7 - Punts forced by Oregon’s defense

1 - First half touchdown allowed by the Oregon Ducks in 2019

2 - Missed field goals by California

0 - Times Washington has won on the Farm since 2007.
