11-2 Ducks heading to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- 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.

The Utes 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 and lost their second straight Pac-12 championship game. 

The win earns the Ducks (11-2) a bid to their eighth Rose Bowl and first since 2015 in the national semifinals against Florida State.
