               === Mariota carries Oregon to rout of Colorado ===
 
 Boulder,  CO (SportsNetwork.com)  - Marcus Mariota threw five touchdown passes
 to lead second-ranked Oregon to a 57-16 drubbing of Colorado at Folsom Field.
 
 Mariota  completed 16-of-27 passes for 355 yards and also rushed for a pair of
 scores  for the Ducks (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12), who have won each game this season by
 at least 39 points.
 
 Bralon  Addison caught  five passes  for 158  yards and  two touchdowns,  Josh
 Huff  finished with  five  catches for  103  yards and  two  scores and  Byron
 Marshall picked up 122 yards on the ground in the win.
 
 "I didn't really think about mercy," Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich said.
 "That's a good program, a proud program. We're not in the embarrassment
 business. We're not in the statistic business and we don't think about
 individual awards. That's not our deal. We just wanted to get in a rhythm
 offensively."
 
 Connor  Wood  was 11-for-33 passing for  205 yards and two interceptions. Paul
 Richardson  finished  with  134  yards  receiving and  also  threw  a  75-yard
 touchdown  pass  for the  Buffaloes (2-2, 0-2),  who have dropped back-to-back
 games.
 
 Colorado  jumped out to  an early lead as Will Oliver booted through a 33-yard
 field goal.
 
 The  Ducks, though,  answered  back just  over two  minutes  later as  Mariota
 ran  it  in from two yards  out. Pharaoh Brown  bulled his way across the goal
 line for the two-point conversion to make it 8-3.
 
 The  Buffs  got creative  on their  next touch  as Richardson  took a pitch on
 a reverse then found D.D. Goodson wide open along the right sideline for a 75-
 yard touchdown.
 
 Oregon, however, added three touchdowns before the end of the first quarter to
 blow the game wide open.
 
 First,  Thomas Tyner ran it in from two yards out, and Mariota followed with a
 75-yard touchdown strike to Addison.
 
 After  Wood  was picked off  by Terrance Mitchell  on the Colorado 26, Mariota
 connected with Keanon Lower for a 17-yard score to make it 29-10.
 
 Oliver  added a pair of field goals early in the second, but Mariota tacked on
 two more touchdowns to close out the half.
 
 "I felt like if we would've kept coming away with nothing, I felt it might
 have deflated us," MacIntyre said. "I felt the field goals us a little bit of
 energy."
 
 
 The  sensational  sophomore capped a  12-play, 67-yard  drive with a 1-yard TD
 plunge  before orchestrating an 11-play, 92-yard march which ended in a 4-yard
 toss to Huff for a 43-16 lead heading into the break.
 
 Mariota  found Addison for a 44-yard touchdown 4:21 into the second half for a
 50-16  cushion before  adding a  26-yard  TD strike  to Huff  just under  four
 minutes later.
