AP: QB Thomas healthy for No. 1 Ducks
While the Ducks sprang to No. 1, Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas worked out the remaining kinks in his throwing shoulder. Thomas fell awkwardly on his right arm in the second quarter of Oregon's 43-23 victory at Washington State on Oct. 9. He benefited health-wise from an open date this past weekend, while the undefeated Ducks benefited from Ohio State's 31-18 loss to Wisconsin.
