Marcus Mariota Leads Ducks Past California, 59-41

Marcus Mariota Leads Ducks Past California, 59-41

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) -- Heisman Trophy candidate Marcus Mariota threw five touchdown passes in Oregon's 59-41 win over California at Levi's Stadium on Friday night.

Mariota threw his first interception of the year and passed for 326 yards in the victory.

"During the game I was upset," Mariota said. "Coach came and joked with me and got me to relax a little bit and forget about it. It's OK. It happens. I just have to learn from it."

The Ducks (7-1) improved to 4-1 in the Pac-12 and California (4-4) dropped to 2-4.

"You might want to go buy a lottery ticket, Marcus made a couple of mistakes," Ducks head coach Mark Helfrich said. "I'm actually glad, I think, that that happened to get him off the schneid."

Oregon running back Royce Freeman had 112 yards on the ground and two touchdowns.

"It'll be exciting to play in Levi's Stadium," Heisman Trophy candidate Marcus Mariota  said Tuesday. "My brother and my dad are huge Niners fans, it'll be cool to take pictures and show them."

"Playing on a Friday night, there's not that much college games on, people will be tuning in," Mariota added. "It'll be a lot of fun."

Mariota has thrown 19 touchdowns and passed for 1,957 yards this season.

The Golden Bears are 2-3 in the Pac-12 so far this season.

No. 2 Oregon Upset by Unranked Arizona

No. 2 Oregon Upset by Unranked Arizona

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(EUGENE, Ore.) -- No. 2 Oregon was handed their first loss of the season Thursday as the unranked Arizona Wildcats defeated the Ducks 31-24.

This is the second straight season the Wildcats have beat the Ducks. 

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota gave credit to Arizona and the strength of PAC 12 teams after the defeat. 

"They're undefeated," he said. "It's obviously a testament to our conference. If you're not prepared each week, if you're not ready to play, you'll lose."

The loss is a blow to Mariota's chances at winning the Heisman and Oregon's hopes of being invited to college football's first four-team postseason playoff.
