Barner Steps Up To Fuel Ducks Victory

By Jim McCoy Mon 1st October Sportscollege footballOregon DucksWashington State Cougars
In the third quarter against Washington State, Oregon running back Kenjon Barner's teammates lifted him high off the ground in celebration of a 10-yard scoring dash. The touchdown put the No. 2 Ducks up 44-19, capping a four-minute third-quarter rally and all but sealing the 51-26 victory over the Cougars on Saturday night. Barner, who played last season in the shadow of LaMichael James, had four touchdowns, including an 80-yard scoring run. The senior running back finished with 195 yards rushing on 20 carries. His yards on the ground were the second-most of his career behind the 201 yards he had against Fresno State earlier this season. He also had three catches for 37 yards and a score. Oregon (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12), led by only 23-19 at the half, giving the Cougars reason to hope for the upset.
