WATCH: Oregon’s Marcus Mariota scores TD on QB throwback vs. Arizona
We’ve been treated to some awesome Marcus Mariota highlights so far this season.
Well, add another one to the reel.
In the second quarter of Oregon’s game vs. Arizona, the Ducks QB took the snap and immediately handed off to Royce Freeman. Mariota then took off down the left side, where Freeman found him with a pass. Mariota rumbled the rest of the way, breaking two tackles for the 26-yard TD.

That near-fumble at the end was reviewed, but officials could not find enough evidence to overrule the touchdown call on the field.
It’s safe to say that play won’t hurt his Heisman chances in the slightest.
