Oregon Ducks Marcus Mariota and Justin Herbert reunite before Week 9 matchup

Ducks

It is always good to see former college teammates reconnect in the NFL.

Especially when they are both former Oregon Ducks.

Former Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota and rookie Justin Herbert had stellar careers in a Ducks uniform, and now they are both able to see each other professionally and on different teams.

Mariota is currently the backup quarterback for the Raiders behind Derek Carr. Las Vegas has listed him as inactive for a third-straight game heading into Sunday's matchup. 

Herbert, however, has held the starting gig for the Chargers since Week 5, and has not looked back.

The Rookie of the Year candidate has thrown for over 1,820 yards, 15 touchdowns and only five interceptions through seven games.

The Chargers take on the Raiders at 1:00 p.m. (PST) on FOX.
