    [​IMG]QB Darron Thomas and RB LaMichael James aren't going to play, but that isn't slowing down the Oregon*juggernaut.

    And, really, Colorado doesn't look like it has much left in its tank anyway.

    The Ducks jumped ahead 29-0 after a quarter and lead 35-0 at halftime in Boulder.

    The Ducks have 358 total yards. Colorado has 144. Oregon has rushed for 239 yards, averaging 11.4 per tote.

    Much of that came on an 84-yard TD run from Kenjon Barner, who has 105 yards a two touchdowns. Backup QB Bryan Bennett completed 8 of 16 for 119 yards and two scores.

    Linebacker Michael Clay returned a Tyler Hansen pass 32 yards for the Ducks final touchdown before the break.

    And there's more bad news for the already injury-riddled Buffaloes. QB Tyler Hansen is injured and won't return in the second half.

    That means Colorado is playing without its best receiver (Paul Richardson), best running back (Rodney Stewart) and best QB (Hansen).

    Reasonable to assert that the Buffs chances for a second-half comeback are remote.
