Bo Nix career-high 6 TDs No. 6 Oregon crush Arizona State
Bo Nix throws 404 yards, ties school record with 6 touchdowns as No. 6 Oregon dominates Arizona State 49-13.
In a stunning display of offensive prowess, Bo Nix led the No. 6 Oregon Ducks to a resounding 49-13 victory over Arizona State in a Pac-12 showdown. Nix's performance was nothing short of historic as he passed for 404 yards and tied a school record with six touchdown passes in just over two quarters.
Completing 24 of 29 passes, Nix's six TD throws put him in the company of legendary Oregon quarterbacks like Joey Harrington, Justin Herbert, and Marcus Mariota. His bid for a seventh touchdown was thwarted by an offensive pass interference penalty early in the third quarter.
After Nix's remarkable performance, Ty Thompson took over as the Ducks continued their march towards the conference championship game. Thompson also contributed to the touchdown parade, throwing a touchdown pass and helping the Ducks achieve a team-record-tying seven touchdowns for the game.
The receiving corps also had a field day, with standout performances from Troy Franklin, who had eight catches for 128 yards and two touchdowns, and Patrick Herbert, who added three receptions for 78 yards and two touchdowns. Tez Johnson, Gary Bryant Jr., and Casey Kelly also made significant contributions with one touchdown reception each.
Arizona State, despite their best efforts, could not match the offensive onslaught of the Ducks. The Sun Devils managed to score only on two field goals and a late fourth-quarter touchdown.
The Ducks' dominance was evident in their total offensive yardage, amassing 603 yards compared to the Sun Devils' 316. Oregon's offense was firing on all cylinders, scoring on each of their six drives in the first half, including a remarkable 98-yard drive that began at their own 2-yard line with just over a minute left in the second quarter.
While the Sun Devils showed moments of promise, including a brief surge led by 270-pound tight end Jalin Conyers, they ultimately could not contain the explosive Oregon offense. The Ducks' victory was a testament to their offensive prowess and their relentless pursuit of victory.
In the end, Oregon's performance was nothing short of spectacular, showcasing the team's depth, skill, and determination. As they continue their journey towards the conference championship game, the Ducks have firmly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the Pac-12.
