Bo Nix’s rebound helps No. 15 Ducks get back on track

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) The last two games have certainly shown that any initial concerns about Bo Nix’s integration into Oregon’s offense were a bit overwrought.

Nix has rebounded from a disappointing outing in the season opener against Georgia with a pair of stellar performances against Eastern Washington and BYU.

Nix answered the next week against lower-tier Eastern Washington, throwing for 277 yards and a career-high five touchdowns in a 70-14 victory.

He built on that success by throwing for 222 yards and two touchdowns – and running for 35 yards and three more scores – in a 41-20 victory over then-No. 12 BYU. He was the first Oregon QB to throw for two and run for three since Marcus Mariota in the Pac-12 championship game in 2014.

At one point in the fourth quarter against BYU, Nix ran on third-and-13. While he was a yard short, the Ducks successfully went for it on fourth down to extend the drive.
