Remember 2015? That’s the last time a Willie Taggart-coached team didn’t hang at least 30 points on the board.
Per Brett McMurphy, that’s the longest streak in the country by a country mile.
Coaches w/consecutive games scoring 30 points: Taggart 21; Gundy, Morris 6; Clark, Johnson, Leach, Petersen, Richt, Strong 5

The last time Oregon’s first-year head coach didn’t lead a team to at least 30 points was November 7, 2015. Even that game was a win for South Florida, as the Bulls upended East Carolina 22-17.
Oregon is currently the highest-scoring offense in the nation with 49.6 points per game. West Virginia of the Big 12 ranks second in that category at 48.8. The next closest Pac-12 team is Washington at 44.
In the Ducks’ latest game, Oregon defeated Cal 45-24. Even if you only counted Taggart’s games at Oregon, he’d only be one game behind Mike Gundy of Oklahoma State and Chad Morris of SMU.
Taggart gets a chance to face off against another person on that list published by McMurphy this week as the Ducks host Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars.
