Oregon Ducks Logo Pac-12Oregon Football came up just short against Washington, falling 37-34 in a game of back-and-forth offensive explosion against their bitter rival to the North.

Many factors played into a loss that Dan Lanning said was “100% on him,” but there was one that stood out above the rest: Oregon’s atrocious pass defense.

On today’s episode of Locked On Ducks, I go through the most disappointing elements of a crushing loss to the rival Huskies on Saturday.

The defense put up its worst overall showing since the Georgia game, and there’s no way to sugarcoat how porous it was as Penix threw for over 400 yards—inside Autzen Stadium.

The offense ran for over 300 yards and managed 34 points, and still, it was not enough.

The offense could have been better in a couple of critical moments, but it was NOT to blame (nor were the officials) for the Ducks’ loss to the Huskies.
