Score: Oregon 41, BYU 20

Fourth quarter


Oregon finished off an eight-minute drive with a 25-yard field goal from Camden Lewis to squash the brief momentum BYU had built, and it’s almost over in Eugene. Oregon 41, BYU 20.


BYU has its first back-to-back scores of the game, turning a Ben Bywater interception into points after Chris Brooks ran for a 2-yard touchdown. Oregon 38, BYU 20.

The Cougars went for 2 but couldn’t convert, and it’s an 18-point game.


BYU’s offense showed signs of life again, and ends a 55-yard drive with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Jaren Hall to Kody Epps. Oregon 38, BYU 14.

Epps’ first career touchdown ends 28 straight points from the Ducks.

Third quarter


Oregon made BYU pay for failing on a fourth down in its own territory, quickly driving for a 9-yard Terrance Ferguson touchdown catch. Oregon 38, BYU 7.

The rout is on after that four-play, 35-yard drive.


It’s like BYU’s run defense from last week was an anomaly.

Oregon drove right down the field on the opening possession of the third quarter and scored on a 6-yard touchdown run by Bo Nix — his third of the day — and the Ducks are rolling in Eugene. Oregon 31, BYU 7.

The Cougars are, well, rolling over.

Second quarter


This one may be over in Autzen: Oregon marched 79 yards in 13 plays and now leads by three scores after a 15-yard Terrance Ferguson touchdown with under 30 seconds until halftime. Oregon 24, BYU 7.

The Ducks converted a fourth-down play in BYU territory on that drive and is just dominating this Cougar defense — that’s four scores on four possessions for Oregon.


BYU drove into Oregon territory, but the Cougars can’t capitalize after Jake Oldroyd missed a 38-yard field goal.

That’s a costly missed opportunity following a 52-yard drive.


Oregon scored yet again, this time on another 2-yard Bo Nix run, as the Ducks have put up points on all three of their possessions thus far. Oregon 17, BYU 7.

A brilliant leaping 50-yard catch from Troy Franklin set up the short touchdown run for Oregon.


BYU responded with a nice drive, scoring on a 28-yard Isaac Rex touchdown pass on the first play of the second quarter. Oregon 10, BYU 7.

That capped a 10-play, 75-yard drive, a much-needed score for the Cougars after a terrible first quarter.

Even with the rough start, Jaren Hall is having a good game. He completed 4 of 4 passes for 46 yards on the scoring drive and had a QB keeper for 6 yards.

First quarter


Oregon extended a disastrous start for BYU, as the Ducks drove 39 yards in seven plays before capping their second drive with a 28-yard Camden Lewis field goal. Oregon 10, BYU 0.

This drive was aided by a BYU special teams penalty and a pass interference call. The Cougars look rattled early in this one.


Oregon marched right through the Cougar defense on its first drive, and Bo Nix scored on a 2-yard keeper to give the Ducks the early lead after a four-play, 64-yard scoring drive. Oregon 7, BYU 0.

The Ducks had a pair of chunk plays — of 26 and 36 yards — on the drive after struggling to move the ball in chunks in their first two games.

BYU failed to convert a fourth-and-7 inside the Oregon 40 on its opening drive, giving Oregon solid field position for its first possession.


BYU will again be without several key players. Here’s the latest:
