Duck Stuff

Rob Moseley has your Friday practice report.

Young quarterbacks Morgan Mahalak and Travis Jonsen both looked poised and comfortable during a Red Zone drill pitting two receivers against a pair of defensive backs. Mahalak appears to be driving the ball to his targets with more zip this spring, while Jonsen has taken visible strides from his first college football practice a few weeks ago to what was No. 9 today.

■ Devon Allen is looking to rejoin the track team in mid May and be ready for fall camp for the football team.

■ Steven Jackson lists his likely impact freshmen for 2015 on the football team.

Marcus Mariota signed with Nike earlier this week.

It started so well, 4 run lead in the first,  but then all hell broke loose. Final USC 13 - Oregon 5.

On Deck: The Ducks and Trojans meet in game two of the series Saturday at 2 p.m. David Peterson (2-5, 5.29) will throw for UO while Kyle Twomey (6-0, 1.79) will take the mound for USC.
