Oregon Ducks to Face LSU at Cowboys Stadium in 2011
EUGENE -- The long-rumored, 2011 nonconference game between Oregon and Louisiana State became official Tuesday.
The announcement was made on the LSU website.
The two teams will meet on Sept. 3 in Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in the Cowboys Classic.
The Ducks are 1-0 this year after pounding New Mexico 72-0.
Running back Kenjon Barner and punt returner Cliff Harris were selected Pacific-10 Conference offensive and special teams players of the week respectively.
Barner scored five touchdowns and had 225 all-purpose yards. Harris returned two punts for touchdowns.
Interestingly, neither Barner nor Harris is a first-string player at the positions for which they were honored.
Barner is listed as Oregon's second-string running back, behind LaMichael James. Harris is Oregon's string punt returner, behind Barner.
