  CJ Verdell ran for 208 yards and broke open the game with two long touchdown runs in the fourth quarter, and No. 13 Oregon spoiled No. 5 Utah's playoff hopes with a 37-15 victory in the Pac-12 championship game Friday night. The Utes (11-2, No. 5 CFP) came into the game hoping to make a case for one of the four playoff spots with a conference title but instead got overmatched by Oregon (11-2, No. 13 CFP) and lost their second straight Pac-12 championship game. They fell into a 20-0 hole in the first half and then gave up a 70-yard TD run to Verdell after cutting the deficit to 23-15, paving the way for the winner of the Big 12 title game between Oklahoma and Baylor to get into the playoff as long as No. 1 LSU beats No. 4 Georgia for the SEC championship.

The Utes got back onto the game with two TD passes by Tyler Huntley in the third quarter. He connected with Zack Moss on a 24-yard play on the opening drive of the half to cut it to 20-7 and then threw a 25-yarder to Samson Nacua late in the third quarter to make it 23-15 following a 2-point conversion. The Utes then drove into Oregon territory before Huntley was sacked by Keyvon Thibodeaux on second down. Utah ended up punting on fourth-and-4 from the Oregon 40 after being stopped on three fourth downs earlier in the game. Verdell struck with his big run five plays later and added a 31-yard score later in the fourth against the nation's top-ranked run defense to put the game out of reach. - AP College Football

  2019 PAC-12 FOOTBALL SCHOLAR-ATHLETE OF THE YEAR: Justin Herbert was named the 2019 Pac-12 Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the Conference office announced Thursday. The award, which is presented in each of the 24 sports sponsored by the Pac-12, was established to honor collegiate student-athletes that are standouts both academically and in their respective sports disciplines. Herbert becomes the first Duck to earn the Pac-12 Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year award. The senior from Eugene, Ore., is a general science major and holds a 4.01 cumulative undergraduate grade-point average.

He has compiled nine terms with a GPA over 4.0 and is a three-time Dean's List honoree at Oregon. Herbert is also a two-time Pac-12 All-Academic First Team honoree and a two-time CoSIDA First Team Academic All-American. He is a finalist for the 2019 William V. Campbell Trophy, the award presented annually to the best football scholar-athlete in the nation for combined academic success, football performance, and exemplary leadership. Herbert's academic prowess has been matched by his on-field performance throughout his collegiate career. He has 31 passing touchdowns this year and 3,140 yards through the air, becoming one of just seven players to throw for over 3,000 yards in each of the last two seasons. - Pac-12 Football

  Justin Herbert threw for 174 yards and a touchdown in his final game at Autzen Stadium and No. 14 Oregon held off Oregon State 24-10 on Saturday in the 123rd Civil War rivalry game. Oregon (10-2, 8-1 Pac-12) wrapped up the regular season with a perfect record at home for the eighth time. The Ducks reached 10 wins overall for the first time since 2014. Oregon State (5-7, 4-5) was denied a bid for bowl eligibility in coach Jonathan Smith's second year. The Beavers haven't made a postseason appearance since 2013. Trailing 17-3 at the start of the fourth quarter, Oregon State closed the gap on Jermar Jefferson's 19-yard touchdown run with 11:03 left.

Herbert appeared to hit Jaylon Redd with an 8-yard touchdown pass but a review determined Redd fumbled before scoring, giving the ball to the Beavers. Oregon State's drive fizzled on a fourth-and-5 attempt, turning the ball over on downs to set up Cyrus Habibi-Likio's 20-yard touchdown run with 1:15 left. Oregon was cruising toward a possible bid in the College Football Playoff last weekend when it was upended 31-28 at Arizona State. The loss dropped the Ducks from No. 6 in the rankings. Oregon was already assured of a spot in the Pac-12 championship game Friday in Santa Clara, California. The Ducks don't yet know their opponent: The Pac-12 South will be determined by No. 6 Utah's game against Colorado. - Oregon/AP College Football

  2019 OUTLAND TROPHY FINALIST: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon (6-6, 325, So., Malaeimi, American Samoa/St. George, Utah): Sewell is regarded as the top offensive lineman in the Pac-12 and one of the two best offensive tackles in the country. In short, he's the best lineman on the nation's best offensive line – an Oregon lineman has taken seven of the Pac-12's 11 Offensive Lineman of the Week awards, and Sewell has three of those seven. Head coach Mario Christobal says he's the best lineman he's ever coached. Sewell was the Outland Trophy Offensive Player of the Month for September and leads Oregon with 45 knockdowns blocking for an Oregon offense that is 21st nationally at 460.2 yards per game. He has five or more knockdowns in five of 11 games. Run-blocking is his specialty but he has yielded only six QB pressures this season and one sack. - FWAA

  Justin Herbert threw for 333 yards and four touchdowns and No. 6 Oregon won its ninth straight game and secured a spot in the Pac-12 championship game with a 34-6 victory over Arizona on Saturday night. Graduate transfer Juwan Johnson caught five passes for 93 yards and a score for the Ducks (9-1, 7-0 Pac-12). Oregon hasn't won seven straight in conference play to start a season since 2012, and no Pac-12 team has started 7-0 in league play since Stanford in 2015. The Ducks, ranked sixth in both the College Football Playoff rankings and the AP Top 25, haven't dropped a game since the season-opening loss to Auburn.

With the victory, Oregon secured the Pac-12 North title and the berth in the conference championship game on Dec. 6 in Santa Clara, California. The Ducks' opponent from the league's South Division has yet to be determined. The loss slimmed Arizona's chances of bowl eligibility. At 4-6 overall and 2-5 in conference, the Wildcats face No. 8 Utah (No. 7 CFP rankings) next Saturday before closing out the season at rival Arizona State. J.J. Taylor had 17 carries for 74 yards and caught six passes for 55 yards for the Wildcats. Both teams were coming off byes. - Oregon/AP College Football

  Probably the best example of Justin Herbert's influence over No. 7 Oregon came after the Ducks fell behind to USC last weekend. The team gathered midway through the first half and collectively decided there was no reason to panic. Herbert led the effort by example, as he has time and again in his senior season. He is one cool customer. "We knew that we're a special group and we just needed to calm down and look at each other and say, `This is not us. We'll do better" he said.

And they did. The Ducks trailed 10-0 after the first quarter but went on to beat the Trojans 56-24 on Saturday. Herbert threw for 225 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score. Each of his touchdown passes came in the second half, and at one point he completed 14 straight passes, making 20 of his last 21 in the game. He now has 87 scoring passes over the course of his Oregon career to rank ninth on the Pac-12's all-time list. He ranks second in the Pac-12 this season with an average of 258.8 passing yards and 24 touchdowns, second only to Anthony Gordon of Washington State in both categories. Over the course of Herbert's career, the Ducks are averaging 38.2 points when he starts. Oregon is 23-7 in the last three seasons with him at QB. - AP College Football

  Oregon's defense began the game by giving up a 16-play touchdown drive. Justin Herbert then threw only his second interception since last November. The Ducks had barely survived back-to-back close games in the previous two weeks, and their winning streak appeared to be in peril again when they fell 10 points behind Southern California after the first quarter. A calming little chat on the Coliseum sideline kept Oregon firmly on track in the College Football Playoff race with another blowout win. Herbert passed for 225 yards and threw three touchdown passes to Juwan Johnson in the second half, and No. 7 Oregon recovered from a slow start to cruise to its eighth consecutive victory, 56-24 over USC on Saturday night.

Oregon (8-1, 6-0 Pac-12) obliterated that early deficit by scoring a touchdown after each of four turnovers by USC freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis during a 19-minute stretch spanning halftime. Freshman Mykael Wright also returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown shortly after Brady Breeze returned an interception 32 yards for a score late in the second quarter. But the Ducks looked shaky in the opening quarter until they settled down and got to work. "We just looked at each other," Herbert said. "We knew that we're a special group, and we just needed to calm down and say, `This isn't us. We're going to do better.' And we addressed that and got to move the ball pretty well. We knew we were better than that. We just had to fix things." Herbert and receiver Jaylon Redd rushed for touchdowns in the first half for Oregon, which remained on track for the Pac-12 North title and a good shot at a playoff spot. - Oregon/AP College Football
