Can you give me a run-down of the Ducks' secondary and what we can expect if Ohio State does look to go deep?
The numbers show Oregon in the upper third in pass defense this year, certainly an improvement over years past when third-and-long was the Ducks defense's biggest nightmare.
I ascribe much of this year's gains to a more aggressive defensive philosophy overall under head coach Chip Kelly. That approach has the Ducks blitzing more often and not just sitting back rushing three guys, leaving the secondary to defend receivers for five and six seconds.
