Is Oregon QB Vernon Adams ready for the spotlight?

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — In perhaps the ultimate irony of college football's opening weekend, quarterback Vernon Adams makes his debut for Oregon against his former team, Eastern Washington.

The No. 7 Ducks face the Big Sky's Eagles on Saturday in Autzen Stadium.

Oregon Coach Mark Helfrich says the game is more about how Adams fares with the Ducks than how he fares against his former team.

"It is a rare and somewhat unfortunate set of circumstances that it is him versus them," Helfrich said. "It's not that."
