Oregon's Byron Marshall rumbles for 77-yard catch-and-run score

Oregon's Byron Marshall used the same skills that made him one of the Pac-12’s leading rushers in last season during the 2014 Civil War to shake off a tackle on his way to a 77-yard touchdown reception. The play stretched the Ducks' lead over the Oregon State Beavers to 23-0 in the second quarter as they pulled away to win 47-19.

As a running back, Marshall punished defenses for 1,038 yards on the ground last season, but the junior moved to a hybrid running back and wide receiver role in 2014. With the emergence of freshman running back Royce Freeman and the need for a hybrid playmaker in the offense after De'Anthony Thomas left for the NFL after his junior season, Marshall's change in position hasn't done much to hurt his production.

Marshall came into the game leading Oregon in receptions and receiving yards, and the 77-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown was his fifth touchdown reception of the season. He finished Saturday's victory with six catches for 131 yards to go with two rushes for 34 more.
