The Oregon Ducks defeated Southern Utah 77-21 on Sept. 2 at Autzen Stadium in Willie Taggart’s first game as the Ducks’ head football coach. Oregon (1-0) will host Nebraska on Saturday at 1:30 PM with the game televised on FOX.
The Ducks traveled to the coast on Tuesday morning and held practice at Siuslaw Middle School in Florence because of the current “hazardous” air quality in Eugene. The workout was closed to the public and media.
In the video above, Taggart explains his reasoning for only dressing the Oregon travel squad for home games and says Jim Leavitt was encouraged by what he saw from his defense against Southern Utah.
