CFB: James runs for 3 TDs in Oregon's win

AP Sports Writer

EUGENE, Ore. As LeGarrette Blount awaited his first chance to play since his suspension, LaMichael James ran for 150 yards and three touchdowns for the No. 14 Ducks in a 44-21 victory over Arizona State on Saturday night.

Blount was dressed and ready to go, pacing the sideline at times with his helmet on. The senior running back returned this week from his suspension for punching a Boise State player following Oregon's season-opening loss to the Broncos.

He never got in the game.

James, who established himself in Blount's absence with an average of 115.9 yards rushing, had 119 yards and all his scores in the first half.
