EUGENE, Ore. -- The last time Washington won at Autzen Stadium was in 2002, when the Huskies upset the No. 23 Ducks and then drew the ire of the fans by dancing on the O at midfield.After nearly a decade of dominance within the conference, Oregon (2-3, 0-2 Pac-12) is limping into Saturdays rivalry game against the No. 5 Huskies (5-0, 2-0) with a three-game losing streak, while Washington is rising in its third year under Chris Petersen.The Huskies also defeated Oregon back home in Seattle in 2003, but that was the last time theyve won in the series. The Ducks have since won 12 straight.Following Washingtons 44-6 victory over Stanford last week, fans at Husky Stadium chanted Beat Oregon!While ending the streak may be important to the fan base, it doesnt really change a thing when it comes to Washingtons preparation, Petersen said. He hasnt mentioned the streak to the players.We know its important. But all these games are important. I mean, I want our guys to just do what theyve been doing -- just preparing hard and staying focused on the right things and showing up on Saturday with great energy and playing as a team, Petersen said. You cant tell them, `OK, now were going to prepare really hard. Thats ludicrous.Oregon has totally different concerns at this point. Reeling from the uncharacteristic losses, Oregon may start freshman Justin Herbert at quarterback.Herbert has been competing in practice this week with Dakota Prukop, a graduate transfer who started in Oregons first five games.Prukop completed 14 of 22 passes for 132 yards and one interception in Oregons 51-33 loss at Washington State last weekend. The Ducks showed a spark on their final series when Herbert led the team on an 85-yard drive capped by his 4-yard run for a touchdown.Were going to put the best guy out there, at that and every other position, to help us win this game, Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said.PURPLE HAZE: Washington has been the best in the country at getting to the quarterback. The Huskies have 21 sacks through five games, tied with Ohio for the most in the FBS. Eight of those sacks came last week against Stanford as the Huskies defensive line overpowered the Cardinal on the line of scrimmage.Whats even more impressive with Washingtons success getting to the quarterback has been its ability to do it without blitzing. Its been the Huskies front four -- sometimes five -- rushers that have recorded most of the quarterback sacks thus far.DYES RETURN: After a mysterious absence last weekend, Oregon freshman linebacker Troy Dye is expected to return against the Huskies. There were rumors about why he didnt travel to Pullman but Helfrich made a point this week of suggesting it was injury-related. Oregon doesnt disclose injuries as policy so its unclear exactly what was going on.Doesnt matter much anyway this week because hes back. Dye has been a bright spot on the Ducks defense, which has struggled this season.Hes just one of those guys that works extremely hard every rep of practice, whether its defense or special teams, Helfrich said. Thats absolutely contagious. We need more guys like that.DAWG SLED: Whether its Myles Gaskin or Lavon Coleman, Washington is getting excellent production from its running backs.After Coleman broke out with 181 yards against Arizona two weeks ago, it was Gaskins turn to show off with 100 yards rushing and two touchdowns against Stanford. Coleman did his part as well, rushing for 74 yards and a score, and the Huskies finished with 214 yards on the ground against the Cardinal.Thats not gd news for Oregon. The Ducks are allowing 210 yards per game on the ground, including 280 yards rushing and six touchdowns to pass-happy Washington State last week.GETTING CLOSER?: Last season the Ducks beat Washington 26-20 in Seattle, which was the closet margin of victory in the 12-game winning streak.WAIT, WHAT?: Oregon will wear navy blue uniforms on Saturday. Yep, you heard that right: navy with yellow accents, ala Michigan and Cal. The throw-way-back uniforms pay homage to the Webfts team that won the 1916 Rose Bowl. The helmets feature the Oregon state flag.---AP Sports Writer Tim Bth contributed to this report. Wholesale LeBron James Shoes .

After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Ryan Mallett is a second-string quarterback making the most of a second chance.Mallett joined the Ravens in December after being cut two months earlier by Houston. Thrust almost immediately into a starting role, he carried Baltimore to a victory over Pittsburgh before throwing for 292 yards in a loss at Cincinnati.Now that Joe Flacco stands atop the depth chart again following offseason knee surgery, Mallett has returned to the role hes held for much of his career: backup.Im still going to prepare like Im the starter every week, Mallett said after Wednesdays practice. Thats the only way Im going to be ready to go if something happens and my number is called.Flacco started 137 straight games before tearing two ligaments in his left knee on Nov. 22. Until that time, being the Ravens backup quarterback pretty much meant tossing your helmet aside on Sunday and watching from the sideline.Because theres no telling if Flaccos knee can take a pounding in game action, Mallett had better be ready to go.Ive definitely spent more time in the offense. Im a lot more comfortable, Mallett said. Its not just a week of preparation. Ive had a spring now and a summer to prepare myself, and these first two weeks of training camp.Mallett has been nothing but professional since arriving in Baltimore. His tenure with the Texans, on the other hand, will be remembered for his misdeeds.He was late for a practice session and late for the team bus. The Texans finally cut him after he missed the team charter flight for a game in Miami.None of that matters to Ravens coach John Harbaugh.Thats the thing about life, ftball, whatever. It doesnt end at your first mistake, Harbaugh said.dddddddddddd You have a chance, hopefully, to do the right things. To bounce back.The 28-year-old Mallett is eager to move on. Short term, hes focused on facing the Carolina Panthers in Baltimores preseason opener.Im here to play ftball. Im ready for the season to get started, Mallett said. Im ready for Thursday night.Mallett was drafted in the third round in 2011 by the Patriots, who kept him on the bench behind Tom Brady for three straight seasons. He played in three games with Houston in 2014, starting twice, before bouncing from the Texans to Baltimore last year.Big guy, big arm, really sharp, Ravens quarterbacks coach Marty Morningweg said. Hes had an outstanding camp. He can make some tremendous throws down the field.Mallett has the talent to start. For now, he remains in waiting mode.I wouldnt play if I didnt want to be a starter, Mallett said. Thats not the situation right now. I understand my role on this team and Im going to do that to the best of my ability.With Flacco likely to remain on the sideline Thursday, Mallett will get plenty of playing time leading up to the Sept. 11 regular-season opener against Buffalo.Ryan is a heck of a guy. Hes a hard worker. Hes a pro, Harbaugh said. Its going to be fun to watch him play. As far as a player for us, hes 1-1. Hes .500. Its time for him to win some more games, and hell have a chance to do that for us in the preseason.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
