Ducks quack right back! 🦆

Just when things were at their absolute bleakest, Anthony Brown and the Oregon Ducks briefly offered fans a reprieve.
Down 17-10 to a 1-4 Cal squad, Brown and the Ducks offense marched 62 yards across just five plays, ending the drive with a 20-yard strike from Brown to receiver Jaylon Redd for a touchdown.
The score tied the game in the fourth quarter, giving Oregon a better chance of avoiding what could be an epically bad loss to the Golden Bears at home on a Friday night on national television.
Brown also, at least temporarily, put a halt to the rising chants calling for his backup, true freshman Ty Thompson, to come in to the game as his replacement.
The graduate transfer is currently 21-for-29 with 240 yards and a touchdown, although his lack of downfield passes and questionable decision-making has hampered Oregon far more than it has helped them so far this evening.
Redd hauled in his first reception of the game and the 15th touchdown of his career, making an acrobat catch in heavy traffic to help Oregon stay in this one.
