One thing has become increasingly clear during the first half of the 2014 college football season: Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is one of the Heisman favorites. Before last week’s 31-24 upset by Arizona, Oregon was undefeated and ranked No. 2 in the nation. Yet while the team has been up and down at times, Mariota has been slaughtering teams without mercy. Against Washington State, the 6-4 signal-caller was nearly perfect, and he still hasn’t thrown a pick all season. While Jameis Winston continues to let things overshadow his play (and now Todd Gurley as well), Mariota is doing nothing but dominating and the voters are taking notice.
However, up until this point, he’s been doing it for the most part against subpar competition. Outside of Michigan State, when he threw for 318 yards and three touchdowns, Oregon has beaten South Dakota, Wyoming, and Washington State. Tomorrow will be their first real test, traveling to UCLA to play the No. 18-ranked Bruins and their own top-ranked quarterback, Brett Hundley. The Ducks will need their fans to not only show out in full force, but to also bring their game. Thankfully, you all have Champs Sports.
