Oregon's defense was underrated for most of the 2009-12 window, but I'm not sure the Ducks have ever had a more defensively dominant performance (against a good offense) than this one. Arizona fumbled its first kickoff, then went punt, three-and-out, three-and-out, three-and-out, three-and-out, three-and-out, three-and-out, turnover on downs. If Oregon hadn't struggled early in terms of finishing drives, the Wildcats could have been down 50 by the time they first scored.
Play more defense like this, Ducks, and you'll end up with the national title. The offense struggled here and there, and it couldn't have mattered less.
