EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Bo Nix threw for 287 yards and one touchdown despite being hobbled by an leg injury, Oregon intercepted Utah quarterback Cameron Rising three times, and the 12th-ranked Ducks knocked off the 10th-ranked Utes 20-17.

A week after watching their hopes at the College Football Playoff evaporate, the Ducks rebounded with a gutty effort that kept alive their chances of getting back to the Pac-12 championship game for the fourth straight season.

The Ducks need only a win over rival Oregon State next Saturday to book their ticket to Las Vegas and a date with Southern California.

Rising was 21 of 38 passing, set a career-high with the three interceptions.
