Eugene, OR. -- Oregon football showcased a dominating performance in its third Pac-12 contest of the season. Justin Herbert threw for two touchdowns, Cyrus Habibi-Likio ran for three on the ground and the Oregon defense intercepted Colorado’s Steven Montez four times in the Ducks' lopsided 45-3 victory over the Buffaloes on Friday night at Autzen Stadium.

In front of a sold out crowd, No. 13 Oregon (5-1, 3-0) scored the most points against a Power 5 opponent this season. Defensively, the Ducks were suffocating in what was the team’s most complete outing of the year. Prior to Friday night, Colorado had averaged 34.6 points per game. However, the Buffaloes’ offense managed to score a mere three points. Their previous low had been 23.

The Ducks did not make it through the game unscaved. Oregon’s most notable injuries came from tight end Jake Breeland and safety Jevon Holland.

Breeland, Oregon’s leading receiver, went down following a 22-yard catch along Oregon’s sideline during the first quarter. He left the game with a brace on his left knee and with the help of crutches.

Holland, Oregon’s starting nickel and punt returner, went down after a collision with UO linebacker Troy Dye in which the sophomore’s left leg hit into the diving linebacker. Holland was carted to the locker room and was on the Ducks sideline with a walking foot on his left foot.

The Ducks will travel north next week for a tough matchup against the Washington Huskies.
