college football • Marcus Mariota was sharp in his limited appearance in the Oregon spring game on Saturday, throwing a pair of first-quarter touchdown passes to lead the Ducks green team to a 27-7 victory against the grey team. Mariota, a possible 2014 Heisman Trophy candidate who returned to Oregon for his junior season instead of turning pro this winter, completed 6 of 7 passes for 100 yards and played in the first three series for the green team. He also rushed for 23 yards on five carries.

"It was a lot of fun," said Mariota, who is 23-3 as a two-year starter. "It was a good foundation for next fall. There were some good things to take out of it."
