                  === Oregon cruises past Washington State ===
 
 Eugene, OR (SportsNetwork.com) - Oregon sure looked pretty in pink.
 
 Marcus  Mariota  threw for  327 yards  and two touchdowns  and ran for another
 score in the second-ranked Ducks' 62-38 win over Washington State.
 
 The  Ducks  wore pink  helmets, cleats  and socks  for Breast Cancer Awareness
 Month.
 
 Oregon  overcame  the excessive  passing of the  Cougars' Connor Halliday, who
 threw  for 557 yards  and four touchdowns to go with four interceptions on 58-
 of-89  passing. His pass attempts broke the FBS record of 83 set by Drew Brees
 in October of 1998.
 
 "That was pretty cool to be able to do that," Halliday said. "I knew going in,
 on  about  Monday of last week,  that we were going  to throw it a lot. Nobody
 ever thinks 89 is going to be the number."
 
 Mariota  was 23-of-32 passing  and added 67 yards on the ground on eight totes
 for Oregon (7-0, 4-0 Pac-12), which amassed 719 yards of total offense.
 
 "The  guys  really rallied after  halftime, and were able  to come out and get
 things rolling again," Mariota said.
 
 Byron  Marshall carried  the ball 21 times for 192 yards and three touchdowns,
 while  Thomas Tyner had  99 yards rushing and a pair of scores on seven rushes
 in the triumph.
 
 The  Ducks remained  without  explosive running  back  De'Anthony Thomas,  who
 missed his third straight game due to a right ankle injury.
 
 Gabe  Marks  had 13 receptions  for 143 yards and  a touchdown for the Cougars
 (4-4, 2-3), who have dropped three of their last four games.
 
 Oregon  led 34-24 at  the break, but tallied the first 28 points of the second
 half to turn the game into a rout.
 
 Mariota hit Keanon Lowe for a 10-yard score on the Ducks' initial drive of the
 half and after Avery Patterson picked off Halliday, Marshall ran for a 30-yard
 TD to make it 48-24.
 
 Mariota  fired a 17-yard TD pass to Josh Huff early in the fourth and Terrance
 Mitchell  returned  a Halliday interception  51 yards for  a score and a 62-24
 Ducks lead.
 
 Halliday tossed two late TD passes to end the scoring.
 
 Earlier,  Mariota broke off  a 57-yard TD run on the Ducks' first possesion of
 the  contest --  the two-point  conversion  was unsuccessful  -- and  Marshall
 plunged  in from a yard out midway through the first to stake the hosts a 13-0
 spread.
 
 The  Cougars  answered with Halliday's  11-yard TD pass to Dominique Williams,
 but  the  Ducks drove  right back down  the field and  Marshall capped off the
 brisk 4-play, 79-yard trek with a 26-yard TD run.
 
 Tyner's 1-yard TD run early in the second made it 27-7.
 
 Halliday  completed  a 12-yard TD pass  to River Cracraft before Darryl Monroe
 strip-sacked  Mariota on  the second play of Oregon's ensuing sequence. Xavier
 Cooper picked up the ball and ran in for a 29-yard score to whittle to deficit
 to 27-21.
 
 Tyner  exploded for a 66-yard TD scamper three snaps later and Andrew Furney's
 49-yard  field  goal as the first  half expired pulled Washington State within
 10.
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 Halliday's 58 completions tied former Eastern Michigan Andy Schmitt's FBS mark
 against  Central  Michigan on  Nov. 28,  2008 ... Oregon  was 3-of-10 on third
 down, while the Cougars were 5-of-15 in those situations.
