EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- LaMichael James says it all the time: The reason he is successful is because of the work the offensive line does in front of him.

James, a Heisman Trophy finalist last season, is a star in No. 8 Oregon's speedy spread, along with quarterback Darron Thomas and freshman sensation De'Anthony Thomas.

But there are plenty of other contributors the Ducks' rugged offense who often get overlooked, from the O-line to David Paulson.

The senior tight end had career highs with eight catches for 105 yards and a touchdown in last week's 49-21 victory over Oregon State in the Civil War.

The win put Oregon (10-2, 8-1) in the inaugural Pac-12 championship game against UCLA (6-6, 5-4) on Friday night at Autzen Stadium.
