Vernon Adams threw for 300 yards and 4 touchdowns, and the University of Oregon became bowl eligible with a 44-28 victory over slumping California last night.

Next fall, Eugene area sports fans will have two new teams to follow. Lane Community College is adding men’s soccer and women’s volleyball to its roster.

LCC last had men’s soccer in 1986 and women’s volleyball in 2003. Lane Athletic Director Greg Sheley says bringing back the two sports is part of the school’s plan to increase enrollment, which has been down:

The University of Oregon Ducks continued their winning streak against northwest rival Washington 26-20, Saturday night. The Ducks have now beaten the Huskies 12 times in a row. The game marked the return of quarterback Vernon Adams, who has been battling a finger injury, and wide receiver Darren Carrington, who missed the first 6 games of the season due to a suspension.

Head Coach Mark Helfrich says the conference win was huge.

Helfrich: "We've let a couple get away in our mind, which is unfortunate, but anytime you can win at Huskies stadium, that's good for a Duck."

It wasn't a good day for college football in Oregon. The Ducks hosted Washington State Saturday afternoon, and after 8 straight losses to the Ducks, the Cougars finally won in double overtime, 45-38. This is the second home loss for Oregon this season. Head Coach Mark Helfrich denied the defeat was due to continued shuffling at the quarterback position.

The Oregon Ducks rebounded with a win against Colorado, following a blowout loss at home last week against Utah. The game in Boulder was delayed for about an hour due to lightning. Most of the early workload went to running back Royce Freeman, who rushed for 163 yards and scored twice. KLCC's Desmond O'Boyle says in addition to lingering problems on defense, the Ducks played carousel at the quarterback position.

It was Oregon's worst loss at home since falling 54-0 to Washington in 1977. No. 18 University of Utah walloped No. 13 Oregon last night, 62-20. The Utes' 62 points were the most scored against a PAC-12 opponent since joining the league in 2011, and also the most the Ducks have ever allowed in Eugene.

Oregon coach Mark Helfrich says the loss is all on him, but he's looking ahead.

Junior quarterback Jeff Lockie made his first start for Oregon a winning one, throwing for 228 yards and two touchdowns in a 61-28 victory over Georgia State yesterday.

Lockie took over for Vernon Adams, who was out with a broken index finger on his throwing hand.

Lockie: "It was a lot of fun, finally getting a chance and you know to play in front of these fans who I'm getting to know over 4 years and you know, my whole family here and just getting your name called in the beginning that was, you know, that was special."
