After stellar showing, Bo Nix leads No. 15 Oregon into Washington State

It seems Bo Nix is starting to settle in at Oregon.

The quarterback — who transferred in the offseason after starting for three seasons at Auburn — garnered national accolades after leading the host Ducks to a 41-21 victory against then-ranked No. 12 BYU last weekend.

Nix and No. 15 Oregon (2-1) will open Pac-12 Conference play Saturday when they travel to Pullman, Wash., to take on a surging Washington State (3-0).

Nix completed 13 of 18 passes for 222 yards and two touchdowns against BYU and also rushed for three scores. The last Oregon quarterback to score at least three times on the ground and twice through the air in a single game was Heisman-winner Marcus Mariota in 2014.

Nix rebounded from a shaky opener — a 49-3 loss to defending national champion Georgia — to guide the Ducks to a 70-14 victory against Eastern Washington before the BYU game, for which he was named player of the week by the Maxwell Award, the Pac-12, and the Senior Bowl. He was also selected to the Davey O’Brien Great 8 of the Week.

“One of my past coaches told me that pressure is a privilege, and so I’ve really taken that to heart, and there’s nothing more true, in my opinion,” Nix said. “When you have a lot of pressure, it means that people believe in you; people believe you can do it or you wouldn’t have pressure at all.”

First-year Oregon coach Dan Lanning is optimistic the Ducks will have running back Byron Cardwell Jr. and linebacker Justin Flowe back this week. Neither played against BYU because of unspecified injuries.

“I wouldn’t sit here and…
