Successful Saturday for Ducks and Beavers in Pac-12 Play


Both the University of Oregon and Oregon State University scored Pac-12 football wins Saturday night.

The No. 13 Ducks (4-1) had a rough start to their match up with Cal (4-2) at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, with three early turnovers and an interception, and went into the half scoreless and down by seven. The Ducks took the lead in the third quarter and topped the bears with a final score of 17-7.

Ducks quarterback and Eugene native Justin Herbert has now thrown for touchdowns in 33 consecutive games, which is the longest streak in the nation. Herbert moved into second at Oregon in career passing yards with 8,411 and is now behind only Marcus Mariota.
