OR swagged out in "Nightmare Green" for Pac-12 Championship

OR swagged out in

Numbers to know: Utah leads the FBS in rushing defense (56.3) with opponents averaging just 2.26 yards per carry. And it was another bitter loss for Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, who lost last year's Pac-12 title game to Washington, 10-3. Will Herbert or Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley come away with the bigger performance, or will this be a rock fight between two excellent defenses?

The Utes then drove into OR territory before Huntley was sacked by Keyvon Thibodeaux on second down. Utah ended up punting on fourth-and-four from the OR 40 after being stopped on three fourth downs earlier in the game.

The Ducks sent the tone early when they stuffed Moss for no gain on two short-yardage attempts from the OR 33 on the opening drive.

Many also criticized Peloton for using a thin, wealthy woman in an ad about a fitness journey. The commercial ends with her sharing her video diary with her husband and thanking him.


The Utes kept making more mistakes and the Ducks only added to the lead.

After forcing a three and out, OR got a field goal on the next drive, then blocked a punt after Utah committed a false start on fourth-and-one before Brady Breeze intercepted a pass in the end zone. The win, which featured 193 passing yards and a touchdown from Justin Herbert, clinches Oregon's eighth Rose Bowl appearance. In that case, the Utes would be hoping to gain a Cotton Bowl berth by remaining ahead of teams such as No. 9 Florida in the final rankings - and those teams have completed their regular seasons. Oregon's senior quarterback and likely first round pick will see just two more games to persuade National Football League scouts and general managers that he can be the future leader of their franchise. That said, the Ducks aren't looking to play second fiddle. Utah could've made a Rose Bowl berth -.

With its win, OR is headed to the Rose Bowl.
