The USC Trojans have fallen behind the Oregon Ducks, 14-3, after the first quarter of play at the L.A. Coliseum on Saturday evening.

Oregon struck quickly to open the game, moving the ball 75 yards in one minute as Marcus Mariota completed 4-4 passes for 68 yards. The Ducks finished the drive when De'Anthony Thomas scored on a 16-yard touchdown pass.
