Quarterback Bo Nix threw for 265 yards and ran for three touchdowns, Noah Whittington added a spectacular 55-yard touchdown run and No. 12 Oregon rolled to a 49-22 victory over Arizona on Saturday.
The Ducks (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) scored touchdowns on seven consecutive drives starting midway through the first quarter, building a 49-13 lead by late in the third. All seven scores were on the ground.
Oregon racked up 580 yards of total offense — including 306 yards rushing — doing virtually whatever it wanted against Arizona (3-3, 1-2).
Nix was excellent on the ground for a second straight game, scoring on a pair of 2-yard runs before breaking free for a 25-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He ran for a career-high 141 yards and two touchdowns last week against Stanford.
