Oregon's Marcus Mariota recovers own fumble for improbable TD

The ball always seems to bounce the right way for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. Literally.

Mariota kept the football on a read option in the third quarter before fumbling it to himself and scooping it up for a 23-yard touchdown Saturday at UCLA. What looked like a broken play turned into a highlight touchdown, thanks to the athleticsim and awareness of the junior from Hawai'i.

The Ducks went on to blow out the Bruins 42-30 behind 285 total yards and 4 total TDs from the Heisman candidate.
