1. Oregon's offensive backfield
RB LaMichael James and QB Darron Thomas combined for 374 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 46 carries in the Ducks' 52-31 win over Stanford. Thomas also threw for 238 yards and three more scores. The young quarterback came of age against the Cardinal, leading his team back from an early 21-3 deficit, the third time this season he has brought the Ducks back from a double-digit hole. Stanford QB Andrew Luck was dealing early on, but if Thomas' confidence was shaken, he certainly showed no signs.
