The Vernon Adams Bowl, the morning after

EUGENE - Vernon Adams was the main story Saturday night, which was the culmination of his seven-month saga that ended with the Ducks' 61-42 win over the Eagles at Autzen Stadium. Our own John Blanchette was there, focusing on the Adams story in this column.  I covered the game itself with this story and notes. ... The local media was there in droves. The Oregonian had this game story, plus an account of what Eastern's offense did to the Duck secondary and this photo gallery. From the Eugene Register Guard, here's a column devoted to the Adams story, a game story and an account of EWU linebacker John Kreifels' ejection following a late hit on Adams. ... The biggest news out of the Big Sky Conference happened closer to home, where Portland State stunned Washington State. We have this story from the WSU perspective.... In Missoula, Montana fell to Cal Poly on a last-second field goal.
