In a rematch of one of the most thrilling games of the season, the final Pac-12 game will present a match between Oregon vs Washington.

Unlike the previous October game, this time a College Football Playoff spot is on the line. Previously, the Washington Huskies handed the Oregon Ducks their only loss 36-33.

Interestingly, Washington hasn’t looked as dominant since that game, while Oregon defeated two ranked opponents, Oregon State, and Utah, and outscored them 66-13.

The Huskies won by a combined score of 57-48 against those same teams. Both teams have extra motivation towards the match.

Another win against the Ducks will guarantee Washington (12-0) a playoff berth. Oregon (11-1) needs to win more than ever, though.

A loss means they would be eliminated, but a win may be enough to put them in the CFP. The quarterback matchup between Oregon vs Washington will be exciting to watch.

Both QBs, Bo Nix and Michael Penix Jr., average the most passing yards per game with 325.5 and 324.92.

Against each other, Penix had 302 passing yards and four touchdowns, while Nix threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns.

Penix and Nix will have a prime-time stage to leave impressive performances to Heisman Trophy voters.
