Let's do something different and chop this scouting report up by drives. The final play is an important reminder that even "cerebral" centers make line-calling mistakes.
Oregon starts its day with a trick play. Unger is instrumental to this working. The play starts with Jeremiah Masoli under center. Unger snaps, pops up and pulls hard left. The defense shades left. Masoli laterals to Jeff Maehl. The defense bites down on the "pass". Maehl runs back towards Masoli. Unger breaks back and seals the right edge, becoming the de facto right tackle. Masoli passes to Jamere Holland over the middle for 47. Good awareness and excellent execution by Unger.
The next play is a sweep. Unger pitches the ball out of shotgun. Remene Alston runs for two. Unger does not factor.
The next play is again out of shotgun. Unger snaps, pops up, doubles the Cowboys left defensive tackle, moves into the second level, attempts to block a linebacker, overextends and is shed. Masoli laterals to Maehl for a loss of one.
Fourth play: Shotgun, Unger snaps, doubles the left defensive tackle, the tackle moves hard offensive-right pulling Unger and Mark Lewis out and away from the blitz.
The Cowboys overload offensive left. Patrick Lavine comes untouched and sacks Masoli for a loss of ten. Unger misses the blitz before the snap and is then lured out and away from the action.
