Oregon QB Beau Nix is ​​a decision during the game against Utah

Oregon quarterback Because Nix remains a game-time decision for #12 Ducksmatch with no.10 Utah on Saturday, sources told ESPN.

Nix injured his ankle in the loss to Oregon Washington last week and is expected to warm up before the game at Autzen Stadium. The team will make a decision about Knicks after warmups, sources said, and the medical staff will apparently be part of the consultation.

If Nix can’t go, it will be a big loss for the Ducks. Nix has been a revelation for Oregon since transferring from Chestnut and becomes one of the best players in college football.

This season, Nix completed 73% of his passes, scored 24 touchdowns and gained 2,775 yards. Most impressively, Nix cut down on turnovers and became a model of efficiency, throwing just five interceptions in 300 attempts.

If Nix is ​​out, Oregon will be a redshirt freshman Ty Thompson. With the Knicks’ situation in flux, Thompson has received significant reps in practice and is considered a ready-to-play personnel when called upon. Thompson is a former ESPN 300 recruit who has 159 career passing yards and appeared in six games for the Ducks. He hasn’t started the game yet.

Oregon enters Saturday’s game at 8-2, having been hit in the opener vs Georgia in Atlanta and upset Washington 37-34 at Autzen Stadium last week.

Oregon was physically manhandled by Utah in a pair of games last season, losing by a combined score of 76-17. The Utahns dominated at the line of scrimmage, including holding the Ducks to 221 yards in the Pac-12 title game.
