The Oregon vs. Washington Pac-12 championship game is set to be a rematch of their regular season showdown, where the Huskies handed the Ducks their first defeat. This matchup will heavily influence the chances of both teams to make it to the playoffs this season.
The Ducks will be seeking revenge in the championship game after their 33-36 defeat in October. Since then, Dan Lanning and his team have put up a strong performance, with a six-game winning streak and a decisive 31-7 victory over Oregon State last week.
On the other hand, the Washington Huskies will enter the championship game with confidence, having been the only undefeated team in the Pac-12. They will be looking to further bolster their chances of making it to the College Football Playoff.
The game will feature two standout quarterbacks, Bo Nix of the Ducks and Michael Penix Jr. of the Huskies, both vying for the 2023 Heisman Trophy. The performance of these quarterbacks and the overall outcome of the game will be crucial in determining the final Pac-12 champion before the conference dissolves.
