So Chip Kelly tries the fake punt, it works to perfection. Then Thomas hits Lavasier Tuinei for 43 yards to the Auburn 3 and Oregon is ready to punch it in.
But they don’t. The Tigers make a fourth-down stand and what could have been the turning point of the game is lost for the Ducks.
Tuinei made one heck of a catch though. Over the shoulder, hauling it in and running. Ducks faithful are disappointed here but not distraught. 2:26 to go in the third, Tigers ball.
