Oregon Game NotesOregon is 3-0 in Pac-10 play for the first time since 2001.
Chip Kelly's five-game winning streak is the most by a first-year head coach at Oregon since Jim Aiken won six straight to end the 1947 season.
The Ducks last won five straight in 2005, when they put together a seven-game string.
UO has held three straight opponents to 10 points or less for the first time since 1980, when they did it twice.
FR RB Kenjon Barner recorded the second longest kickoff return in UO history - 100 yards for a touchdown - to open the second half. Woodley Lewis (Oct. 15, 1949) has the longest at 102, back when the NCAA counted end zone yardage.
Oregon's scoreless string at UCLA ran to eight quarters before Barner's TD in the 3rd quarter. The Ducks had been shutout in the Rose Bowl since halftime of Oct. 4, 2003.
JR CB Talmadge Jackson III intercepted a pass for the second straight week, this time resulting in his first career touchdown (32 yards). It was his fourth career pick, third in Pac-10 play.
Oregon has scored five non-offensive touchdowns in six games to date: 2 INT, 1 FR, 1 PR and 1 KR.
SO LB Eddie Pleasant had his third career fumble recovery, all this season.
JR QB Nate Costa, making his first career start, tossed is first career touchdown pass on a 20-yarder to JR WR Jeff Maehl.
Maehl's TD catch was the first by an Oregon wide receiver this season.

The 49-yard 1st-quarter run by James was his season high.
Barner had a 48-yard scamper in the 3rd quarter - a season best. Oregon has allowed two touchdowns in three Pac-10 games, both resulting from a short field created by a turnover.
FR FS John Boyett made his second career interception, both coming in the fourth quarter of games when UO was protecting a lead.
SO CB Anthony Gildon made is first career start.
True freshman CB Cliff Harris made his collegiate debut.
SR WR Rory Cavaille played for the first time in 2009 after sitting out five games due to injury.
