Oregon’s defense has best performance in years vs. Utah

Any way you want to look at it, that was one of the more impressive victories that we’ve seen from the Oregon Ducks in several years.

Coming off of a brutal loss to the Washington Huskies, Dan Lanning’s squad was forced to prepare for a game against the No. 10 Utah Utes without certainty at the quarterback position, trying to bounce back from the disappointing loss and keep their Pac-12 Championship hopes alive. When you add in the fact that Oregon’s season was completely derailed by Utah a year ago with two blowout losses at the end of the year, then it only added to the stakes.

It all resulted in a very gutsy win from the Ducks. A win where the defense was the story of the game, rather than an offense that ranks among the best in the nation. A lot of individual players stepped up, and a few coaching decisions went awry.

As we do every week, let’s identify players who saw their stocks go up, and a few who might have seen a slight dip against Utah:

Even better than that, it came a week after one of the worst games of his career, where the veteran safety gave up two long touchdown passes to the Washington Huskies.

Williams proved that he put it all behind him, and was out to prove how good he really was vs. Utah on Saturday. The veteran finished with a game-high 14 tackles and had two interceptions as well. He was all over the field, and one of the main reasons that Oregon’s defense was able to find such success. It was great to see it all come together for such a deserving player.

Stock Up: Bo Nix

What more can you say about Bo Nix that hasn’t already been said? He was far less than 100% healthy coming into this game, ruled…
