SEATTLE (AP) -- Marcus Mariota threw for 366 yards and three touchdowns, added another 88 yards and a TD rushing, and No. 2 Oregon won its 10th straight over their rivals to the north with a 45-24 victory over No. 16 Washington on Saturday.

Mariota's passing was nearly spotless, he used his legs to make the Huskies pay when throwing options were covered and was easily the best player on the field. Mariota completed 24 of 31 passes, and ran another 13 times. He threw touchdowns of 4 yards to Bralon Addison and a 65-yarder to Josh Huff on the first possession of the second half for the  Ducks (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12). Huff had to be carted to the locker room with an apparent right leg injury in the first half, only to come back after halftime and burn the Huskies secondary.

Bishop Sankey ran for 167 yards and touchdowns of 60 and 25 yards for Washington (4-2, 1-2), but had a costly first-half fumble.
