EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Redshirt freshman Marcus Mariota threw for 260 yards and two touchdowns, including a 55-yard scoring pass to freshman Bralon Addison late in the third quarter, and No. 3 Oregon beat No. 22 Arizona 49-0 Saturday night.

Billed as an offensive juggernaut between the Pac-12’s fastest scoring teams, Oregon didn’t find its stride until the second half — and Arizona never did — and the Ducks (4-0, 1-0) got their seventh straight conference-opening victory.

Arizona (3-1, 0-1) couldn’t find the end zone and quarterback Matt Scott, a fifth-year senior who spent the last two season’s behind Nick Foles, passed for 210 yards but was intercepted three times — one resulting in an Oregon touchdown.
