Although Marcus Mariota knew he would be under a spotlight when he stepped onto the famed Paramount Studios lot Wednesday, the Oregon quarterback is getting quite comfortable in his starring role. ''I've had to get used to it and come out of my shell a little bit, but I'm trying to enjoy it,'' Mariota said at the Pac-12's media day. ''I take it as an honor and a privilege, and hopefully an opportunity to provide a good influence.'' Coach Mark Helfrich and Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott both used the league's first session of its two-day Hollywood kickoff event to praise Mariota for staying in school. The rest of the Pac-12 isn't quite as excited about the Heisman Trophy candidate's return after two dynamite seasons for the Ducks, but he's just one reason why they're favored to win their highly competitive league again.Yahoo Sports - NCAA Football - Oregon Ducks News

Oregon has been picked to win the Pac-12 football title in a preseason media poll for the fourth time in the past five years. UCLA also is favored to reach the league championship game in the poll released Wednesday. Oregon also received 24 votes to win the league title game in Santa Clara, Calif., on Dec. 5. Stanford, last season's league champion, finished second behind Oregon in the North Division balloting.Yahoo Sports - NCAA Football - Oregon Ducks News

The college football offseason is long and arduous, but its end is almost in sight. We’re going to take a look at five games you have to look forward to for every weekend of the season. (This is also a handy guide to decide how to RSVP for any autumn weddings.) All times are Eastern and all games are played on Saturday unless otherwise noted. These games take place the weekend of September 6. Previously: Week One (August 30) Michigan at Notre Dame (7:30 p.m.) The last game in the current series (the Wolverines and Irish have been on-again, off-again for a century, despite what Mark May and Skip Bayless might tell you ), there are plenty of bragging rights at stake in this Midwestern hatefest. The Wolverines have taken four of the last five, but all five contests were one-score games in the fourth quarter and featured some level of dramatics, with Notre Dame’s sole win coming at home in 2012. Everett Golson - back from an academic suspension – started that game but didn’t finish it after an ugly first half. He now has more experience and a myriad of weapons to leverage in Brian Kelly’s spread attack, including a pair of talented sophomore backs in Tarean Folston and Greg Bryant. Michigan’s defense should be stout with eight returning starters in addition to five-star freshman defensive back Jabrill Peppers and a full season from star linebacker Jake Ryan, but questions abound regarding their offense, specifically the line that slowly dissolved as 2013 wore on. If Devin Gardner plays like he did last year against the Irish, Brady Hoke’s squad should be in good shape, but attempting to predict anything in this series is a fool’s errand. Michigan State at Oregon (6:30 p.m.) After two seasons of cupcake non-conference games*, Oregon gets a considerably tougher challenge in the reigning Big Ten and Rose Bowl champs. Michigan State’s 2013 was one of their finest seasons in the last half-century, and while they return enough to make things interesting in Eugene, there are some big losses. Gone are Max Bullough, Denicos Allen and Darqueze Dennard, but Mark Dantonio’s squad is essentially the Big Ten version of Stanford, a team that has suffocated the Ducks in consecutive years. Oregon, meanwhile, pretty much returns their entire offense save for top receiver Josh Huff, including a combined 2400+ rushing yards from Marcus Mariota, Byron Marshall and Thomas Tyner. Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook was much improved down the stretch last year, but he’s going to have to be great for Sparty to pull the upset. * In their defense, Oregon didn’t know Virginia and Tennessee were going to be that bad in 2013 when they scheduled them, but they very much were.
