Oregon Ducks look to keep up momentum against Grizzlies


The Ducks face off against the Grizzlies at Autzen on Saturday

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — After coming off a dominant 77-6 win against the Nevada Wolfpack, the Oregon Ducks look to keep the momentum heading into their match-up against powerhouse FCS opponent Montana Grizzlies.

The Ducks offense put their talents on full display last Saturday when they totaled 623 yards on the night and was highlighted by star QB Justin Herbert’s 310 yards and five touchdowns. The defense also did their part holding the Wolfpack to only 193 of total offense while giving up only six points.

Even though the Ducks performance was dominant, head coach Mario Cristobal thinks this team can do more.

“We still haven’t seen our best football,” he said after the win.

The Montana Grizzlies are coming off an impressive 61-17 win over North Alabama, and while on paper this match-up against the Grizzlies might not be the most intriguing to some, Cristobal knows that this team poses a threat.

“Their QB is a special player,” he said. “He is a runner, he is a thrower, and he is the heart and soul of their team.”

The Ducks face off against the Grizzlies at Autzen on Saturday, Sept. 14, and kickoff is set for 7:45 p.m.
