The Oregon Ducks punched their ticket to the college football playoff with a 51-13 win over the Arizona Wildcats in the Pac-12 Championship.
No. 2 Oregon had revenge on their minds in the Pac-12 Championship as they faced No. 7 Arizona, and they achieved exactly that with a 51-13 blowout win to win their first Pac-12 title since 2011, and they are guaranteed a spot in the college football playoff.
The Ducks had previously lost to the Wildcats, 31-24, but they avenged their only loss of the season in every way possible. Their offense was off to a slow start in the first quarter as they only scored six points, but they began clicking and stormed out to a 30-0 lead after halftime.

Running back Royce Freeman ran for 114 yards on 21 carries, and wide receiver Darren Carrington caught seven passes for 126 yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats were in for a nightmare as they went through three quarterbacks. Anu Solomon was held to 34 yards before being replaced by Jesse Scroggins.
Backup quarterback Jerrard Randall scored a touchdown as the clock winded down and rushed for 81 yards on 10 carries. Scroggins threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Cayleb Jones, but the Wildcats only came up with 224 total yards.
