QUOTE OF THE DAY
"I could tell it wasn't just a little owie, and I was hoping and praying it was maybe just a one-game deal and we could get through this game without him. It's going to be tough. I know that's football, and that's this time of year, but we had two big blows today, and that's two tremendous athletes that we lost." - UO receivers coach Robin Pflugrad, on the loss of wide receiver Cameron Colvin and then running back Jeremiah Johnson to injury.
OREGON INJURY REPORT
WR Cameron Colvin, fractured right ankle, out for season; RB Jeremiah Johnson, right knee injury, pending MRI; DB Willie Glasper, strained groin, probable for next week.
