That had been the case until this current drive, with Auburn now moving the ball upfield. The end of the first quarter hurt Oregon, which had a third-and-2 at the Auburn 3 when the quarter ended. Auburn’s D got a breather, which it badly needed with the the Ducks’ fast tempo, and then Nick Fairley stuffed RB Kenjon Barner for a five-yard loss and forced a field goal. 3-0 Ducks.
