Saturday's Washington-Oregon game marks the return to Autzen Stadium of former Duck defensive back Justin Wilcox. The Junction City kid played for Oregon under Mike Bellotti from 1995-99 and is now the defensive coordinator for Steve Sarkisian at UW.
Kasen Williams took a quick screen pass from Keith Price, broke a tackle and the line of scrimmage and raced 35 yards for the go-ahead score with 4:53 left, and Washington rallied from 10 points down to stun No. 8 Stanford 17-13 on Thursday night.
Safety Will Shamburger returned a fumble 44 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter, Keith Price threw for 222 yards and a TD to Kasen Williams, and Washington raced to an early lead then held on for a 21-12 win over San Diego State on Saturday night.
If there's a more explosive offense in the country than Oregon's, Tennessee coach Derek Dooley hasn't found it. He's well aware that the Volunteers' defense is in for a true test when the No. 11 Ducks come to town on Saturday.
Boise State coach Chris Petersen was wide receivers coach at Oregon from 1995-2000. Now he's in charge of the Broncos, who play the No. 17 Ducks Saturday at Autzen Stadium. The Broncos have gone 25-3 so far over his tenure.
