Oregon Upsets USC, Wins Second Consecutive Pac-12 Title

IF, and it’s a rather big if, #13 USC had any hopes of making it to the College Football Playoff, those went right out the window on Friday night when they took on the Oregon Ducks and lost. The Pac-12 title game, in which Oregon was only there due to Covid ruling out Washington, ended up going the Ducks way in what has been a ridiculously crazy season for the conference as a whole. USC came into the game unbeaten, and truthfully, they were not going to get into the final four with a 6-0 record anyway, but there was hope they could send a message for next year and the years to come.

That didn’t play out, though, as they fell 31-24 in what was a very ugly game. Oregon QB Tyler Slough only had eight completions for less than 100 yards, while his counterpart Kedon Slovis through for 320 yards but also had more interceptions (3) than touchdown tosses (2). That was a big factor for Oregon, who hadn’t won a game in nearly a month, being able to get the lead early and largely hang on throughout the duration. The win brought the Ducks’ record up to 4-2 and dropped the Trojans to 5-1. We’ll see who Oregon faces in a couple of days at the Rose Bowl, while USC will still be crossing their fingers for a preferred bowl game.
