RB LaMichael James

Oregon, Jr.

Last week: 30 rushes for 239 yards and one TD in 43-15 win over Cal.

Season (five games): 95 rushes for 852 yards and eight TDs; 11 receptions for 159 yards and one TD; six punt returns for 116 yards and one TD; one kick return for 21 yards.

James continued his torrid run despite his day being cut short by injury early in the fourth quarter. He ran for a 53-yard touchdown on his first carry of the game en route to becoming the first Ducks player to run for at least 200 yards in three consecutive games. He also passed Napoleon Kaufmann for fifth on the Pac-12 rushing list with 4,129 yards. The junior, who had four runs of 20 yards or more in the win over the Bears, now has an FBS-best 11 this season.

Next up: Saturday vs. No. 22 Arizona State
