Oregon football avenged its 2016 loss to Oregon State in a 69-10 blowout Saturday night in Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon. The first Civil War during the Willie Taggart era was a massive success, ending the Ducks’ regular season campaign at 7-5. A plethora of weapons were at the Ducks’ disposal but Royce Freeman was the star, totaling 122 yards and two touchdowns in his last game at Autzen. Freeman’s performance moved him into 6th on the all-time rushing yards list according to the NCAA record book, while he sits at 10th all-time on the rushing touchdown list. The Ducks will now await their bowl game bid, returning to the postseason after sitting out last year.
