Watch: 'Jesus, girls and Marcus Mariota' the hot topic around Oregon

Sunday November 23rd, 2014

Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich faced an interesting question about Marcus Mariota's future with the Ducks after Saturday's win over Colorado.

Mariota, a junior, threw three touchdowns, ran for another and amassed 396 total yards in Oregon's 44-10 win over Colorado. He's widely considered the favorite for this season's Heisman Trophy, but because he's only a junior, his status for next season remains a hot topic in and beyond Eugene.

Cue this question from a student reporter from O'Hara Catholic School, in Saturday's postgame press conference:

Jesus, girls and Marcus Mariota. Enough said. Mark Helfrich sure seemed entertained.
