Oregon Blows Up Utah, Claims Pac-12 Championship
CJ Verdell ran for 208 yards and broke open the game with two long touchdown runs in the fourth quarter, and No. 13 Oregon spoiled No. 5 Utah's playoff hopes with a 37-15 victory in the Pac-12 championship game. The Utes came into the game hoping to make a case for one of the four playoff spots with a conference title but instead got overmatched by Oregon and lost their second straight Pac-12 championship game.
