Oregon made hard work of their season-opening victory at home to Fresno State.

The Ducks trailed midway through the fourth and needed an Anthony Brown TD run with little under three minutes remaining to win.

They ran the ball well as Brown, CJ Verdell and Travis Dye combined for 186 yards and three touchdowns.

QB Brown had 228 all-purpose yards on the day. He threw for 172 yards and a TD, with no interceptions.

Potential first-round draft pick Kayvon Thibodeaux suffered an ankle sprain in the win and is considered day-to-day here.

The Buckeyes trailed 14-10 at the break, but CJ Stroud showed growth in the second half as they turned it around.

Stroud threw four touchdown passes, ranging from 38 yards to 70 yards, as Ohio State won 45-31.

Chris Olave led the receivers with 117 yards and two TDs. Garrett Wilson had 80 yards and a score, while TreVeyon Henderson’s sole catch was a 70-yard TD.

Verdict

CJ Stroud has big shoes to fill succeeding Justin Fields, but he did grow into the Week 1 victory.
