Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
■ Royce Freeman got a helmet sticker for his performance against the Huskies.

Oregon's remarkable win streak over Washington reached 11 games with Saturday's commanding 45-20 win, and the Ducks got it done by pummeling the Huskies' vaunted front seven. They did it behind Freeman, a true freshman power back who's built more like a senior. His bruising effort amassed 169 yards on 29 carries (5.8 average) against a Washington defense that had been sturdy against the run entering the game. Freeman powered his way to four touchdowns. The Ducks' offensive line seems to be back and firing on all cylinders.

Andrew Greif, Rob Moseley and Caleb Couturie break down the talking points on Mark Helfrich's Sunday press conference and preparing for Cal on a short schedule.

■ After years of dawg dominance it sure is fun being on the giving end of all the beat downs we have handed the Huskies for the last 11 years. How about Royce Freeman, kid is for real. I could go on and on but I will share the stories around the web on the 45-20 win.

Andrew Greif liked the play on both sides of the ball; Jake Tabor on the stifling defense; Tyson Alger liked the play making from Darren Carrington and Dwayne Stanford; Jason Quick talks about the irrelevancy of the huskies; John Canzano says Oregon looks like Oregon again; Joseph Hoyt liked the play of Pharaoh Brown; game day photos here; Rob Moseley has a postgame notebook, talks about a swarming defense and recaps the game; ESPN rounds out the stories.
