Tyler Robinson reports from the Oregon State post game press conference at Reser Stadium for FishDuck.com. Heisman moment anyone?

It’s the calm before the storm. “Rivalry Week” looms next weekend, and for the first time in several weeks there wasn’t a “marquee matchup” on the books. Does that mean this Saturday didn’t offer up any noteworthy action? Not by any means. Big 12: Samaje Perine — Oklahoma. Have you heard of him? Me neither, but he stole the show …

Tyler Robinson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

Oregon will get some much-needed help on a depleted offensive line Saturday. Tackle Andre Yruretagoyena vowed that he’d return to action this season after injuring his left leg against Michigan State in Week 2. Yruretagoyena is making good on that promise and will take the field against Colorado State after missing the Ducks’ last eight games. I had the opportunity …
