As if Washington State needed it, Oregon apparently will go with quarterback Darron Thomas and running back LaMichael James in Saturday’s noon game. The two have just been announced as Ducks starters on the public-address system.
James has been out since the California game Oct. 6 with a dislocated elbow. Thomas tweaked his knee against Arizona State Oct. 15. Neither has played since, while their backups have performed well.
Oregon plays Washington next week at Husky Stadium in a night game.
