Civil War 2014: Marcus Mariota scores six times, literally flies over Beavers

Nov 29, 2014

Marcus Mariota went off once again in what could be his final Civil War and regular season game as an Oregon Duck. Passing for four touchdowns and rushing for two more, the junior from Honolulu led the Ducks past Oregon State, 47-19, Saturday in Corvallis.

A regular touchdown machine, this is the third time that Mariota has put together a six-touchdown or better performance in his career and the first time in 2014.

While six touchdowns may be the headline, Mariota’s signature play of the night may have actually come on the end of a non-touchdown run where he leapt over a Beaver defender to put an exclamation mark on a long run.
