Ducks' Mariota Says Ducks Are Ready For Arizona

By Jim McCoy Wed 19th September Sportscollege footballOregon Ducks

Quarterback Marcus Mariota believes the No. 3 Ducks were tested enough through their first three games to be ready for Pac-12 play. Oregon faced Arkansas State, Fresno State and lower-division Tennessee Tech in its nonconference schedule, defeating all of them handily. But with several young players, especially on offense, there were questions about whether those opponents gave the Ducks enough preparation for what they'll face in their conference - especially given some of the league's surprising early season upsets. The Ducks take a significant competitive step up on Saturday night when they host No. 22 Arizona, which is also undefeated through its first three games under new coach Rich Rodriguez.
