Justin Herbert passed for 365 yards and three touchdowns to lead the OR offense. Nebraska went on a 21-0 run in the final two quarters.
OR turned both turnovers into points.
Oregon Football looked good last week against Southern Utah, but the challenge was different against a more stout Nebraska Cornhuskers team on Saturday. "I just think in the second half we were a little complacent". Sophomore running back Tre Bryant injured his right knee on his 20th carry and also did not return.
Thousands of red-clad Husker fans made the 1,360-mile journey to Eugene, competing with the Ducks fan base on the volume scale during pregame festivities. They did a nice job on our outside runs and ran them down a little bit.
They were, however, far quieter at halftime as the Huskers trudged to the locker room trailing 42-14.
"As disappointing as a lot of that was, we'll have a hard time watching film", Riley said. Pierson-El finished the half with two catches for 28 yards. But Willie Taggart's group responded with a 35-7 scoring run that ensured its memory would be diluted. The Oregon offense rolled up an impressive 409 yards, including 313 through the air by sophomore quarterback Justin Herbert. Herbert found wide receiver Charles Nelson from eight yards out, and OR went up 14-0 in less than four minutes of gameplay.
"Just playing football, the same thing I've done since third grade, the same thing just a bigger stage", the Sioux Falls, South Dakota, native said, adding he knew he would start since Wednesday or Thursday.
For his part, Lee had a tepid showing. On Saturday, he outplayed Huskers counterpart and offseason hype magnet Tanner Lee, who threw more interceptions (four) than TDs (three).
Rublev youngest to US Open quarters since 2001
Asked about the progress of the Americans here, Vandeweghe said: "I watched the match last night with Venus and she said it best. The No. 1 seed is back into the quarters in Flushing Meadows for the first time since 2013, when he won his second of two U.S.
"We were so up and down at times", offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said.
"We were in that much better position to make some plays", Riley said.
Though it will be tough, Nebraska has the football talent to pull off a come-from-behind win in Eugene over the Ducks.
The Blackshirts, meanwhile, forced two turnovers and other turnover on downs to redeem themselves from a first half in which OR (2-0) amassed 409 yards and scored 21 straight points to close the second quarter.
Lee's first pass of the game was intercepted by Oregon's Tyree Robinson. "Jordan and Austin are going to be big-time players for us". His production did tail off in the second half, though. Before that, he played at Manatee High School in Bradenton, Florida, where he followed quarterback Tommie Frazier - who went on to lead the Huskers to consecutive national championships and undefeated seasons in 1994 and 1995.
In a postgame press conference, Nebraska head coach Mike Riley recognized his team's slow start and getting outplayed in the first half.
"It's just part of the culture that we want to build here", Taggart said.
On special teams, the Huskers did get a kickoff return for a touchdown from JD Spielman, but that came right after Nebraska gave up a punt return for a score.
