Utah blows out Oregon, ends Ducks’ College Football Playoff hopes



The result was never in doubt on Saturday when Utah upset Oregon in blowout fashion at home, 38–7. The Utes dominated every facet of the game and came out on top over a team that was expected to represent the Pac-12 for the College Football Playoffs. 

The No. 23-ranked Utes scored the first 28 points of the game, all of which came in the first half. The exclamation point came in the second quarter’s final seconds via an incredible 78-yard punt return from Britain Covey. 

It wasn’t until the second half that the No. 3-ranked Ducks finally found the end zone. The Oregon goose egg was no more after wide receiver Devon Williams caught a 36-yard pass from quarterback Anthony Brown in the third quarter.
