In the pouring rain last night at Autzen Stadium, The University of Oregon walloped California 55 to 16.  The game was essentially decided in the first quarter, when several Cal mistakes allowed the Ducks to open up a 27-0 lead.  The rain caused miscues and turnovers on both sides.  Oregon fumbled once – it was the first turnover by the ducks the entire season.
