Anthony Brown

The Oregon quarterback had one of his best all-around performances of the season to lead the Ducks to the 38-29 win over Oregon State on Saturday at Autzen Stadium. Brown completed 23-of-28 passes (82%) for 275 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. Brown also ran 14 times for 83 yards and a touchdown as the Ducks rolled up 506 yards of total offense.

Even more impressive was the fact that Brown was running an Oregon offense that has lost its top three receivers to injuries and transfer during the season and started two freshmen and one sophomore wide receivers. Brown's 50-yard touchdown throw to Devon Williams on Oregon's second touchdown drive might have been his best throw of the season.

Oregon's Travis Dye breaks into the clear for the first score of the game against Oregon State.

The Oregon running back continues to have big games against the Beavers with 99 rushing yards on 20 carries with two touchdowns and caught four passes for 39 yards. This was the third time Dye was the game's leading rusher against the Beavers. In 2018, Dye ran for a then-career high 199 yards on 33 carries and two touchdowns in the Ducks' 55-15 win Corvallis. In 2019, Dye ran for a game-high 91 yards on 12 carries in a 24-10 Oregon victory and last year, he ran for a team-high 93 yards on 12 carries in a 41-38 loss in Corvallis.

Luke Musgrave

The Oregon State tight end has plenty of links to Autzen Stadium and the Ducks as the Bend native is the son of former Oregon quarterback Doug Musgrave and the nephew of Bill Musgrave, a four-year starter and one of the best Ducks quarterbacks ever, who is the California offensive coordinator. Musgrave entered Saturday's game with 12 receptions for 175 yards and had four games with no receptions this season. The most receptions he had in a game was three, but he was a constant thorn in the Ducks' side, catching seven passes for 85 yards and a touchdown. He also had the Beavers' longest reception of the day with a 35-yard catch,
