Eugene, Ore. -- Oregon offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo spoke to the media Tuesday about the upcoming conference matchup against the Arizona State Sun Devils. Because Oregon has struggled to put drives together early in games this year, Arroyo emphasized the importance of starting fast offensively. The Ducks lost last week to Utah. But that wasn’t the only thing they lost out in Salt Lake City. The team suffered a number of injuries, especially at the running back position. CJ Verdell and Cyrus Habibi-Likio both left the Utah game with injuries and are questionable for Saturday’s showdown against ASU. Arroyo discussed he was pleased with freshman Travis Dye’s maturity on and off the field and believes the team can rely on him in the backfield come game day.
