College football scores, rankings, highlights: Oregon moves closer to Pac-12 championship with win over Utah

A year after being dominated twice by Utah, No. 12 Oregon got its revenge and showed the program’s growth with a gritty 20-17 win over No. 10 Utah on Saturday in a Pac-12 night matchup. The win puts the Ducks on the verge of a Pac-12 championship under freshman Dan Lanning.

After a disappointing loss to Washington last week that eliminated Oregon from college football playoff contention, the Ducks had to battle through some injuries to survive the Utahs. Most notably, quarterback Beau Nix was visibly limping after suffering a leg injury late in last week’s game. The Auburn transfer looked far less than 100% healthy, but still threw for 287 yards and a huge first down to put the game away late in the fourth quarter.

If Oregon beats No. 23 Oregon State next week, it will face No. 7 USC in the Pac-12 title game. The Trojans were one of the few CFP hopes to survive a scare Saturday and stay in the national title hunt as they outlasted No. 16 UCLA 48-45.

The only team in this week’s CFP top seven that was either undefeated or on the brink of a loss entering Saturday was No. 6 LSU. The Tigers beat visiting UAB 41-10 to improve to 9-2 heading into next week’s regular season finale with Texas A&M. With No. 5 Tennessee losing at South Carolina, the Tigers will likely move up in the CFP rankings next week as they look to become the first team in history to suffer two CFP losses.
