Oregon Ducks Win Pac-12 Championship After Defeating UCLA Bruins

The Oregon Ducks are the first-ever Pac-12 champions after dominating the UCLA Bruins on Friday night by a score of 49-31. The Bruins hung in early, but the Ducks were simply too talented and too athletic to hang with for the full 60 minutes.

With a lead of 35-17 at the half, the Ducks never looked back. The Bruins made it interesting with an early touchdown in the third quarter, but Oregon promptly responded with back-to-back touchdowns to make the score 49-24. UCLA tacked on one final touchdown on an impressive catch by Nelson Rosario late in the fourth quarter, but it was too little, too late.

LaMichael James was the MVP of the conference title game and ended his stellar performance with 243 yards of total offense. The shifty running rushed for three touchdowns and UCLA had no answer for him. UO quarterback Darron Thomas struggled early, but managed to recover and have a big game throwing 219 yards and three touchdowns. David Paulson, Daryle Hawkins and Colt Lyerla all hauled in touchdown receptions.
