Oregon traveled to Ohio State on Saturday and the Ducks have not stopped running through the Buckeyes. At least CJ Verdell hasn’t through two-plus quarters.
The 5-foot-8, 211-pounder junior scored two touchdowns in the first half to give the Pac-12 school a 14-7 lead at the break.
He picked up his feet where he left off early in the third quarter. Check it out as No. 7 goes 77 yards to paydirt for the Ducks.
Verdell is one of five players in Oregon history to rush for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons (2018-19). He entered 2021 with 2,523 career rushing yards and is well on his way to 3K.
