The Ducks (2-0), who gained a school-record 772 yards last week in beating Nicholls State, looked  capable of doing it again against a Virginia defense that hoped to keep the Cavaliers in the game. Oregon finished with 557 yards and did all its scoring while possessing the ball for just 21:25.

Virginia (1-1) got a very early look at what it was up against as Mariota dropped back on a third-and-5 in the game's opening series, then bolted up the middle untouched, going 71 yards for a touchdown.

After 1:51, the Ducks were on their way to their 16th consecutive victory on their opponent's field, the longest streak in the country.
