  12/27/23 - QB Bo NixrSr/2024, Oregon, 6-2, 214 (DS#6 QB) + More +

  2023 PAC-12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Bo Nix, Oregon,...Nix, a 2023 Heisman Trophy finalist, is the 1st Duck to be named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year since Marcus Mariota's 2014 Heisman-winning season. He's the 4th Oregon player to claim this honor, all of them quarterbacks, including Mariota, Dennis Dixon (2007) and Joey Harrington (2001). Nix, the 2023 Pac-12 Football Scholar Athlete of the Year, is also a finalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy which is often referred to as the "Academic Heisman." Lead No. 8 Oregon to an 11-2 record entering the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl against No. 23 Liberty...Leads the nation with a 77.2 completion percentage, in range of the NCAA single-season record of 77.4 set by Alabama's Mac Jones in 2020. Jones attempted 402 passes that season while Nix has already attempted 435.

Tied for tops in the nation with 40 pass TD this season (LSU's Jayden Daniels) which is just 2 short of the school's single-season record of 42 set by Mariota in 2014...Just the 6th Pac-12 quarterback to throw 40+ pass TD in a season...Joins former Ohio State QB Justin Fields (2019) as the only FBS quarterbacks since at least 1996 to have at least 40 pass TD and 3 or fewer interceptions in the same season...Matched Oregon's single-game record with 6 passing touchdowns at Arizona State, getting all 6 in the first half...Also had 6 total touchdowns (4 passing, 2 rushing) in a win over California. - Pac-12 Football

  Bo Nix threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Chase Cota on fourth down with 19 seconds left and Camden Lewis' PAT bounced off the left upright and went through to give No. 15 Oregon a wild 28-27 victory against North Carolina in the Holiday Bowl on Wednesday night at Petco Park. Cota caught the ball at about the 1 and got it across the goal line as he was being tackled by Don Chapman. The play was upheld on review. Lewis then banked in the PAT. North Carolina (9-5) got the ball to the Oregon 42 with one second left before Drake Maye's desperation heave into the end zone fell incomplete. The Ducks finished 10-3 thanks to Nix, who came up big late in the fourth quarter after being held in check much of the second half. He threw a 6-yard TD pass to Troy Franklin with 6:58 to go to pull the Ducks to 24-21.

The Tar Heels took a 27-21 lead with 2:34 to go on Noah Burnette's 44-yard field goal, his second of the quarter. Nix then moved the Ducks 79 yards in eight plays for the win, with the drive being aided by a pass interference call. Nix was 23 of 30 for 205 yards and two touchdowns, with one interception. Maye, the ACC Offensive Player of the Year, was 18 of 35 for 206 yards and three scores. The Tar Heels took a 21-14 lead on Maye's 49-yard TD pass to Kobe Paysour just before halftime that was set up by an incredible interception by linebacker Power Echols. Echols' jaw-dropping interception and 40-yard return gave the Tar Heels the ball at the Oregon 49. With the score tied at 14 and Oregon driving late in the second quarter, Nix threw behind Terrance Ferguson and the ball bounced off the right calf of linebacker Cedric Gray toward Echols, who tipped it up with his right foot before bending over and grabbing it and taking off to the Oregon 49. - Oregon/AP College Football

  12/19/22 - QB Bo NixrSr/2024, Oregon, 6-2, 214 (DS#6 QB) + More +

  In 2022, Bo Nix put together one of the best regular seasons by a quarterback in Oregon football history. He's planning to stick around in 2023 and lead the Ducks to even greater heights. Nix announced Sunday that he plans to remain with the UO football program for another season. As a first-year transfer in 2022, Nix led the Ducks on an eight-game winning streak that had Oregon in the thick of the College Football Playoff race and Nix generating Heisman Trophy buzz, before a November injury impeded that momentum.

"There's nothing like a Saturday in Autzen Stadium in front of the best fans in college football," Nix said. "There's nothing like playing for my coaches and going to battle with my teammates. There's nothing like being an Oregon Duck." Entering Oregon's Holiday Bowl appearance against North Carolina on Dec. 28, Nix is 271-of-379 passing this season for 3,388 yards and 27 touchdowns, with six interceptions. He also rushed for 504 yards and 14 touchdowns in the regular season. Those numbers put Nix at No. 9 on the UO single-season list for attempts, third in completions, fifth in passing yards and tied for ninth in touchdown passes. His completion percentage of 71.5 percent leads the Pac-12 and would be a UO single-season record, and his 14 rushing touchdowns are one shy of the UO single-season record for a quarterback, held by Marcus Mariota. - Oregon Football

  Bo Nix will play at least one more college football game. What Oregon's quarterback will do after the Holiday Bowl is yet to be determined though. "I wanna know too," Nix said after practice on Friday. "I'm still trying to figure that out myself and we'll decide later." Nix enters the Holiday Bowl matchup against North Carolina completing 71.5% of his passes for 3,388 yards, 27 touchdowns and six interceptions with 504 rushing yards and 14 scores and a touchdown reception for the No. 15 Ducks (9-3). The fourth-year junior is automatically entered in this year's NFL Draft and has until mid-January to decide whether to opt-out of the draft and return to college for his final year of eligibility. "I hope it's as soon as possible," Nix said. "Like you guys, I'm ready to know my decision. It's not an easy process; it's one of the toughest things I've had to do but it's rewarding regardless of what happens."

Nix is one of the first and most prominent cases of a college quarterback who faces this critical career decision in the new age of name, image and likeness compensation, which could surpass his first-year earning potential in the NFL. Early draft projections still vary, but none have Nix expected to be selected in the first three rounds if he were to remain in the draft. This year, NFL rookies earn $750,000 in base salary and the bonus compensation for a player drafted from the first pick in the fourth round to the last pick in the draft ranged from approximately $21,000-$227,000, according to OverTheCap.com. "I think it's tough because in my situation you can hear all different, like all sorts of things from where you could get drafted," Nix said. "And I think that's what kind of makes it not confusing, but it makes you have a lot of decisions because you don't know when you're going to be drafted. And so then you got to compare your situation to college and you know, the value in the two decisions and there's value in both. I don't think I can make a bad decision." - The Oregonian

  Bo Nix started the week as a hobbled spectator sitting in the training room getting rehab. He ended it still hobbled, but celebrating on the field after helping keep alive Oregon's hopes of getting back to the Pac-12 championship game. Nix threw for 287 yards and one touchdown despite a lower leg injury, Oregon intercept three of Utah quarterback Cameron Rising's passes and the 12th-ranked Ducks knocked off the No. 10 Utes 20-17 on Saturday night. A week after watching their hopes at the College Football Playoff evaporate, the Ducks rebounded with a gutty effort that preserved their chances of a fourth straight trip to the conference championship game. And it was personified by their banged-up quarterback. "For him to go out there and have a gutsy performance was really important and special for this team," Oregon coach Dan Lanning said. The Ducks (9-2, 7-1, No. 12 CFP) need only a win over rival Oregon State next Saturday to book their ticket to Las Vegas and a date with Southern California.

Nix was clearly limited after suffering an injury to his right ankle/foot late in last week's loss to Washington that snapped Oregon's 23-game home win streak. He threw a 4-yard TD pass to Troy Franklin in the first half and Bucky Irving added a 10-yard TD run as the Ducks built a 17-3 halftime lead. Camden Lewis added field goals of 30 and 41 yards for the Ducks, the second of which came early in the fourth quarter and proved to be the winning points. Nix finished 25 of 37 passing and his own interception late in the fourth quarter proved not to be costly for the Ducks. Nix's first carry of the night came with less than 2 minutes remaining when he faked a pitch, dived for 2 yards and picked up the clinching first down for the Ducks. - AP College Football

  Bo Nix and the Oregon offense found creative ways to score, including an offensive lineman catching a touchdown pass and a linebacker scoring from short, as the eighth-ranked Ducks routed Colorado 49-10 on Saturday. With the wind howling - 39 mph gusts - the Ducks (8-1, 6-0 Pac-12, No. 8 CFP) breezed to their eighth straight win since a 49-3 loss to No. 1 Georgia in the season opener. The Ducks dialed up one gadget play after another, with offensive tackle Josh Conerly Jr. catching a 4-yard TD pass to open the scoring and linebacker Noah Sewell scoring on a 1-yard plunge. Even Nix got into the trick-play act by catching an 18-yard touchdown pass from tailback Bucky Irving. The Ducks are the first FBS team to have a receiving TD from an O-lineman, a receiving score from a QB and a rushing TD by a defensive player in the same game since at least 1996, according to research provided by Oregon. Nix turned in another strong performance, completing 20 of 24 passes for 274 yards and two scores. He also had two rushing touchdowns. With his TD reception, Nix joined the company of Marcus Mariota (2012 and '14) and Joey Harrington ('00) as Oregon quarterbacks who've been on the receiving end of scores since '96.

Irving finished with 120 yards rushing and, courtesy of his pass, posted an astounding pass efficiency rating of 581.2. Oregon defensive back Christian Gonzalez tormented his former team with a pair of interceptions. Gonzalez earned Pac-12 All-Conference honorable mention accolades last season for the Buffaloes before transferring. About the only thing that didn't go well for Oregon was Nix's backward, hook-shot-looking pass on fourth down near the end zone. Even that worked out, though, as two plays later Gonzalez intercepted a J.T. Shrout pass. It set up a short Nix run to make it 35-10. There was a scary moment for the Buffaloes (1-8, 1-5) in the fourth quarter when talented freshman receiver Jordyn Tyson went down with an undisclosed injury. He was helped off the field with his left leg trailing. Tyson had five catches for 137 yards, including an 81-yard score. It was a gusty day at Folsom Field, with wrappers and leaves constantly blowing all over the field. On one occasion, the pom-poms from the cheerleaders blew onto the field and players tracked them down. - Oregon/AP College Football

  Bo Nix threw three touchdown passes and ran for three more scores to lead No. 8 Oregon to a 42-24 victory over California on Saturday for its seventh straight win. The Ducks (7-1, 5-0 Pac-12) broke open the game with three TDs in a span of less than seven minutes of game time spanning halftime and rolled to another win. Oregon hasn't lost since a season-opening 46-point loss to Georgia, winning six of the seven games by at least 15 points. The Golden Bears (3-5, 1-4) lost their fourth straight game as their defense could do little to slow down Nix and the Ducks and the offense couldn't keep up. Cal has lost 22 of its last 23 games against teams ranked in the top 10. Nix threw for 412 yards and accounted for six touchdowns combined through the air or on the ground. The Ducks gained 586 yards for the game, the most against the Bears in six seasons under coach Justin Wilcox. Jack Plummer threw for 214 yards and one TD for Cal.

Oregon scored three TDs in the second quarter to take charge of the game. Nix ran it in from the 4 on the opening play of the quarter. He bounced back from an interception near the goal line on the next drive to lead the Ducks to two more TDs in the second quarter, scoring on a 1-yard run and then throwing a 12-yard TD pass to Bucky Irving following Trikweze Bridges' interception of Plummer to make it 21-10. Oregon then took the second-half kickoff and scored another TD when Noah Whittington took a short pass from Nix and turned it into a 29-yard score. That gave Oregon it's third TD in a span of 6:29 on the game clock. Nix added a TD run and touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. - Oregon/AP College Football

  Bo Nix threw for 278 yards and five touchdowns and No. 10 Oregon handed No. 9 UCLA its first loss of the season with a 45-30 victory on Saturday. The win extended Oregon's winning streak at Autzen Stadium to 23 games, matching a school record. It is the third-best active home streak in the nation. The Ducks (6-1, 4-0 Pac-12) have won six straight since a season-opening loss to Georgia and are the lone remaining undefeated team in Pac-12 conference play. The loss snapped a nine-game overall winning streak for the Bruins, who have not won in Eugene since 2004. UCLA (6-1, 3-1) hasn't defeated the Ducks since 2017. Nix, a transfer from Auburn, is a mobile threat who has thrown for 17 touchdowns and rushed for eight this season. He completed 21 of 28 passes against the Bruins. His favorite target on Saturday was Troy Franklin, who had eight catches for 132 yards and two scores.

UCLA's Dorian Thompson-Robinson, who was completing nearly 75% of his passes going into the game, threw for 262 yards and two touchdowns. Zach Charbonnet rushed for 136 yards and a score. Oregon slowed UCLA's ground game, allowing 186 rushing yards. The Bruins were ranked second in the Pac-12 with an average of 211.5 yards. In contrast, the Ducks piled up 273 rushing yards. After trading field goals, the Ducks went up 10-3 early in the second quarter on Nix's 17-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Ferguson. UCLA answered with Thompson-Robinson's 36-yard scoring pass to Keegan Jones. Franklin caught a 51-yard scoring pass from Nix to pull the Ducks back in front. Oregon recovered an onside kick and went on to extend its lead with Jordan James' 2-yard touchdown carry. Nicholas Barr-Mira added a 44-yard field goal for the Bruins to close the gap. The Ducks were pushed back by a pair of penalties on the final drive before halftime, but Franklin caught a 2-yard pass from Nix for a 31-13 lead at the break. Nix became the third Oregon quarterback since at least 1996 with multiple games of five or more touchdowns in a season. He joins Justin Herbert (2019) and Marcus Mariota (2014). - Oregon/AP College Football

  Bo Nix threw for 265 yards and ran for three touchdowns, Noah Whittington added an early 55-yard touchdown run and No. 12 Oregon rolled to a 49-22 victory over Arizona on Saturday night. The Ducks (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) scored touchdowns on seven consecutive drives starting midway through the first quarter, building a 49-13 lead by late in the third. Oregon piled up 580 yards of total offense - including 306 yards on the ground - doing pretty much whatever it wanted against Arizona (3-3, 1-2). Nix was a great on the ground for a second straight game, scoring on a pair of 2-yard runs before breaking free for a 25-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He ran for a career-high 141 yards and two touchdowns last week against Stanford.

The Ducks have won five straight since a season-opening loss to Georgia, scoring more than 40 points in every game. They built a 28-13 lead by halftime Saturday. Nix completed 13 of 14 passes for 187 yards as the offense racked up 346 total yards before the break. Arizona managed to stay within striking distance thanks to a 52-yard touchdown run by DJ Williams and a pair of field goals from Tyler Loop, including a 36-yarder as time expired in the second quarter. But the Ducks erased any doubt about the outcome in the third. Oregon opened the second half with an efficient eight-play, 75-yard drive, capped by Nix's second touchdown run for a 35-13 advantage. A few minutes later, Bucky Irving ran for a 22-yard touchdown and a 42-13 lead. Arizona's Jayden de Laura completed 24 of 42 passes for 241 yards, one touchdown and an interception. - Oregon/AP College Football

  Bo Nix threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more, and No. 13 Oregon won its fourth straight game with a 45-27 victory over Stanford on Saturday night. The Ducks (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) have won 22 straight games at Autzen Stadium. They have not dropped a game this season after the opener against Georgia. Stanford (1-3, 0-3) hasn't won since its opener against Colgate. It was the Cardinal's third straight game against an opponent in the AP Top 25. They also fell to USC and Washington. Nix completed 16 of 29 passes for 161 yards and led Oregon with a career-best 141 yards rushing on six carries. Oregon had 351 yards on the ground compared to Stanford's 127. Cardinal quarterback Tanner McKee threw for 166 yards and two touchdowns. Casey Filkins rushed for a score and caught another TD pass. Oregon came from behind last weekend to beat Washington State 44-41.

The Ducks appeared to score on their opening drive of the game, but the pass from Nix to Kris Hutson was called back because of a ineligible player downfield. They settled for a 38-yard field goal from Camden Lewis. Before the end of the first quarter, Nix hit Chase Cota with a short pass and he sprinted into the end zone for a 48-yard touchdown. Joshua Karty kicked a 23-yard field goal for Stanford to narrow the margin to 10-3. But the Ducks answered with Nix's 10-yard touchdown pass to Troy Franklin. Linebacker Noah Sewell pretended to fly in celebration after running back a fumble 21 yards to set up Nix's 4-yard touchdown run. Jordan James added a 1-yard touchdown as time expired in the half to give the Ducks a 31-3 lead. While the Ducks had firm control of the game by the break, their opening half was marked by 10 penalties for 90 yards. - Oregon/AP College Football

  Quarterback Bo Nix threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to Troy Franklin with 1:21 left to give No. 15 Oregon its first lead as the Ducks scored three late touchdowns to defeat Washington State 44-41 on Saturday. Washington State (3-1, 0-1 Pac-12) had taken a 34-22 lead with just over six minutes left, but the Ducks (3-1, 1-0) broke through on offense to secure the victory. Mase Funa iced the game for Oregon when he intercepted a pass by Cameron Ward and ran it back for a touchdown with a minute remaining.

Nix completed 33 of 44 passes for 428 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. The Ducks produced 626 yards of offense. Oregon's only loss was at No. 1 Georgia in the season opener. The Cougars scored on their first possession, as Ward capped a 75-yard drive by running the final five yards for a touchdown. Oregon drove to the WSU 5, but had to settle for a field goal by Camden Lewis when the WSU defense shut down two rushes from the 5 yard line. Nix led Oregon on a 75-yard drive, throwing a 1-yard touchdown pass to Cam McCormick with 3:48 left to close within 34-29 and set up the later heroics. - Oregon/AP College Football

  Bo Nix threw for two touchdowns and ran for three more to lead No. 25 Oregon to a 41-20 victory over No. 12 BYU on Saturday. The victory extended Oregon's winning streak at Autzen Stadium to 21 games, the third-longest in the nation. Nix, a transfer from Auburn, completed 13 of 18 passes for 222 yards and ran for 35 yards on nine carries. Terrance Ferguson caught both of Nix's touchdown passes and finished with 24 yards receiving. Jaren Hall threw for 305 yards and two scores for BYU (2-1), which was coming off a big win at home over then-No. 9 Baylor that moved the Cougars up nine spots in the AP Top 25. They struggled on the ground against the Ducks, mustering just 61 rushing yards.

The Ducks (2-1) rebounded from a season-opening loss to Georgia with a 70-14 win at home over Eastern Washington last weekend. Nix ran two yards for a touchdown to give the Ducks an early lead. Camden Lewis added a 28-yard field goal to give Oregon a 10-0 lead after the opening quarter. Isaac Rex hauled down a pass from Jaren Hall for a 28-yard BYU touchdown early in the second. Oregon answered on the next drive when Nix found Troy Franklin with a 50-yard pass to get close, then ran on another 2-yard keeper to make it 17-7. Nix fired a 15-yard TD pass to Ferguson in the end zone to give Oregon a 24-7 lead heading into halftime. Nix added a 6-yard keeper early in the second half and he hit Ferguson with a 9-yard scoring pass to make it 38-7. Ferguson has four TD catches this season. Ty Thompson replaced Nix late in the third quarter. - Oregon/AP College Football

  Bo Nix threw for 277 yards and five touchdowns and Oregon rebounded from its season-opening loss to Georgia with a 70-14 rout of Eastern Washington on Saturday night. It was Oregon's 20th straight win at Autzen Stadium and its 18th straight victory in a home opener. Troy Franklin caught 10 passes for 84 yards and a touchdown while Byron Cardwell caught a scoring pass and ran for another TD. Oregon was coming off a disheartening season-opening 49-3 loss to the No. 2 Bulldogs that dropped the Ducks out of the AP Top 25. Nix struggled, throwing for 173 yards with two interceptions.

Eastern Washington won its season opener 36-29 over Tennessee State. Quarterback Gunner Talkington threw for 348 yards and five touchdowns, and was named the Big Sky's offensive Player of the Week. Talkington threw for 87 yards and two touchdowns for the Eagles, who managed just 187 yards in total offense. The Ducks had 607. Oregon scored on its first dive of the game when Nix hit Terrance Ferguson with a 13-yard TD pass. Noah Whittington's 5-yard dash down the middle doubled Oregon's lead and Ferguson caught a 19-yards touchdown pass from Nix to give the Ducks a 21-0 lead. Mar'Keise Irving added a 1-yard scoring run. Eastern Washington scored with six minutes left in the first half on Talkington's 7-yard scoring pass to Jett Carpenter. Oregon added two more touchdowns before halftime. Nix hit Cardwell with a 13-yard scoring pass before a 7-yard pass to Franklin. - Oregon/AP College Football

  It's been an offseason of dramatic changes for Bo Nix. The former Auburn quarterback transferred to Oregon in January, spent the next several months getting acclimated to a new school and team while being over 2,500 miles away from home, family and his fiance. Nix got married in July, still managed to wedge some time in to work with private QB coaches and returned to Eugene with his wife, Izzy, to start their life together while he attempts to win the starting job during fall camp. "I think being married and having that part out of the way, it's no longer long distance," Nix said. "All that stuff can be a distraction. It's easier now. She's at home. She lives her life, I go live mine and when we get home we share our days and talk with each other. It's been good. She's great in this situation. She lets me have all the time I need with football, and that's a blessing. That's how I knew she was the one." Nix carries himself as a starting quarterback because that's who he has been for years, both at Auburn and in high school.

He's also doing that now while building relationships with new teammates and also being a husband, making time around practice and meetings to be at home. "I feel like the oldest guy, even though I'm not necessarily by age," he said. "People look at me because I'm already married, I've been through a lot, they assume that I'm a lot older, which is a good thing, because we have a lot of younger guys that haven't had that same experience. "But at the end of the day when you go out there and we have leadership like we have, especially up front on the offensive line, when you got Alex (Forsyth) and Ryan (Walk) and those guys that do their part and that carry that part of the line, it makes it kind of easy for a guy like me with similar experience to go out there and lead the other guys, lead the skill group. I take passion, take pride in it. It's fun to lead those guys and see those guys through to their potential and when their eyes light up and they figure something out for the first time it's a really good feeling." - The Oregonian

  The Oregon Ducks are picked to finish second and the Oregon State Beavers fifth, according to the Pac-12 Conference preseason media poll released Thursday afternoon. The Utah Utes were picked to win the conference, earning 26 of a possible 33 first-place votes. The poll was unveiled in advance of Friday's Pac-12 media day in Los Angeles. The conference preseason poll was constructed as a 1-through-12 finish rather than according to divisions, as the Pac-12 will take the top two teams for its 2022 championship game. In the past, the Pac-12?s division champions played in the championship game. Divisions remain intact for scheduling purposes this season. Utah earned 384 total points, beating out Oregon (345) for first place. USC finished third, UCLA fourth and OSU fifth. - The Oregonian

  2022 PRESEASON DAVEY O'BRIEN NATIONAL QUARTERBACK AWARD WATCH LIST: Bo Nix, Oregon, Jr., 6-3, 214, Pinson, Ala.,...Nix is one of five Pac-12 quarterbacks on the preseason watch list for the oldest and most prestigious national quarterback award. The midseason watch list will be unveiled on Oct. 18, with the 46th annual Davey O'Brien Awards dinner honoring the winner set for Feb. 20, 2023, at The Fort Worth Club in Forth Worth, Texas.

In his first season with the Ducks after transferring from Auburn, Nix enters the fall in an open competition for the starting job with Ty Thompson and Jay Butterfield. Nix passed for 7,251 yards and 39 touchdowns in 34 career games for the Tigers while rushing 262 times for 869 yards and 18 more scores, and he was the SEC Freshman of the Year in 2019 after setting Auburn freshman records with 2,542 passing yards and 16 touchdowns. - Oregon Football

  After a year of inconsistent quarterback play with Anthony Brown under center, the Ducks are hoping for better production from either Auburn transfer Bo Nix, Ty Thompson or Jay Butterfield. Nix is familiar with Oregon offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham and the style he wants to play. Nix and Dillingham worked together when the two were at Auburn in 2019, and that was Nix's best season to date.

That year when Dillingham was the quarterback coach at Auburn, Nix passed for 2,542 yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions and was named the SEC Freshman of the Year. Dillingham left to become the offensive coordinator at Florida State in 2020 and Nix's play was inconsistent during the last two seasons. During that span, Nix didn't throw more than 12 touchdowns a season. Last year, Nix suffered a season-ending ankle injury in a game against Mississippi State. Not long after the season ended, Nix decided to transfer to Oregon with the hopes of fulfilling the potential many saw during his freshman season. - Register Guard

  Oregon and its quarterback Bo Nix will be part of two separate deals announced Thursday between Fanatics Collectables and Topps. Beginning in the fall, Fanatics Collectables and Topps will produce collegiate football and basketball cards through a partnership with 150 universities. The two companies will also partner with over 200 athletes including Nix through the name, image and likeness deal. The partnership with Fanatics Collectables, Topps and student-athletes will put money directly into some of the biggest stars in college sports.

Athletes who are part of this deal will not be limited from signing with other trading card companies. Some of the players who will be featured this fall include Alabama Heisman Trophy winner Byrne Young, Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett and USC quarterback Caleb Williams. Fanatics Collectibles began in 2021 after securing exclusive, long-term trading cards rights from several leading players associations and professional sports leagues. In January, Fanatics acquired Topps, the iconic trading cards brand that has serviced fans, collectors, and retailers for over 70 years. - Register Guard

  The newcomer who could have the most significant input on the Ducks' 2022 season is Nix, who transferred from Auburn after three seasons. During last month's spring game, fans potentially saw what Oregon's offense could look like this fall. On the first play from scrimmage, Nix completed a 70-yard pass to wide receiver Seven McGee. He would also later throw another 70-yard completion to Dont'e Thornton.

In the spring game, Nix completed 8 of 15 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns. Last season, the Ducks' passing game was stagnant at times. If Nix can keep defenses honest by completing passes down the field consistently, that will open up so much offensively. Nix was inconsistent throughout his career at Auburn, but his best season was in 2019 when he threw for 2,542 yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions. Oregon's current offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham was Nix's quarterback coach at Auburn in 2019. - Register Guard

  Here is the Pac-12's welcome to Oregon quarterback Bo Nix after transferring from Auburn. The Pac-12 conference announced that starting in 2022, the two teams with the highest conference winning percentage will play each other in the Pac-12 Championship Game at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Friday, Dec. 2. "The measure was passed with unanimous support from the league head coaches, athletic directors and board of directors," the conference said in a statement. The Pac-12 North and South Divisions and the schedule will remain in place for the 2022 season. However, the scheduling for the 2023 season and beyond will be examined after this year. The NCAA on Wednesday approved the deregulation of the current rule that limited an individual conference to determine their football championship game participants.

This changes affect Oregon in several ways. Instead of Oregon possibly being consensus to play in the conference championship, USC and Utah will likely be the two favorites despite being in the same division. The 2022 schedule will remain the same as Oregon will likely be a contender to play in Las Vegas for the Pac-12 title, but it is possible Utah and USC could be ranked ahead of the Ducks in the preseason Top 25 when it's released in August. Pac-12 Commissioner George Kliavkoff: "Today's decision is an important step towards that goal and immediately increases both fan interest in, and the media value of, our Football Championship Game." If the new model had been adopted in 2011, Oregon would have played in the Pac-12 Championship game six times instead four since 2011. - Register-Guard

  Auburn quarterback Bo Nix is in search of a new school. The three-year starter said in a video posted to Instagram on Sunday that he plans to leave Auburn as a graduate transfer. Nix didn't name any potential destinations. The former five-star recruit started the first 34 games of his career before a season-ending ankle injury against Mississippi State. LSU transfer T.J. Finley started the final two games for the Tigers, who finished 6-6 and are set to face Houston in the Birmingham Bowl on Dec. 28. The son of former Auburn quarterback Patrick Nix called the decision to leave "the toughest I have ever made." "I have loved Auburn from the moment I knew Auburn," Bo Nix said. "All I ever wanted to do was win a championship for Auburn. I can truthfully say that I've given everything that I have for that goal, and I have played in so many amazing games because of it." Auburn went 9-4 in Nix's first season as a starter and 6-5 last year in the pandemic-shortened season. Coach Gus Malzahn was fired after the regular season concluded and Bryan Harsin was hired to replace him. - AP College Football

  Auburn quarterback Bo Nix will miss the final two games of the regular season with an ankle injury. Nix was injured in a 43-34 loss to Mississippi State Saturday that represented the program's biggest collapse after leading 28-3. A team spokesman confirmed Sunday night that the Tigers quarterback is scheduled to have surgery on Monday. Nix, a three-year starter, stayed in the game before getting replaced by LSU transfer T.J. Finley in the final minutes. Auburn visits South Carolina on Saturday and closes the regular season against No. 2 Alabama. Nix posted on Twitter and Instagram about the injury. Having started all 34 games since arriving as a five-star recruit three years ago, Nix has completed 197 of 323 passes with 11 touchdowns against three interceptions this season. He has also run for four touchdowns. Finley started five games at LSU as a freshman, making his first start against Saturday's opponent, South Carolina. He went 2-3 as a starter before losing the job to Max Johnson. Finley transferred after the spring. His biggest impact came when he threw the go-ahead touchdown pass late in a comeback win over Georgia State. That prompted some fans to clamor for a change in starter, but coach Bryan Harsin stuck with Nix. - AP College Football

  Bo Nix passed for 276 yards and a touchdown and ran for two more scores and No. 18 Auburn's defense made a number of big stops in a 31-20 victory over 10th-ranked Mississippi on Saturday night. The Tigers (6-2, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) remained the top challenger to No. 3 Alabama in the Western Division with Nix winning a quarterback duel with Heisman candidate Matt Corral. The Rebels (6-2, 3-2) had their three-game winning streak end after squandering four second-half scoring chances, three with failed fourth down passes inside the 20.

Plus Jaylin Simpson intercepted a pass in the end zone - only Corral's second this season - midway through the fourth. "That's points. They're not going to take points on special teams," Auburn coach Bryan Harsin said. "They're going to go for it and we get the ball back. You kind of think of that as a turnover. "Those were critical moments in the game that we were able to win." Nix completed 22 of 30 passes and ran for 30 yards. Tank Bigsby ran for 140 yards and a touchdown for the Tigers. "Bo made a lot of plays for them, especially early on," Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin said. "I thought our defense after struggling early played especially well, gave us a bunch of chances offensively to win. "That's four times in the red zone with no points. That's going to be hard to win." Corral had his 19-game streak with a touchdown pass end with a 21-of-37, 289-yard performance. He did run for a score, returning after getting carted to the locker room with an injury to his left ankle, previously hurt against Tennessee. - Auburn/AP College Football

  Three plays were all it took for Auburn. Strip-sack score. Fourth-down stop. Long touchdown pass. The Tigers turned a three-point deficit into an 11-point lead in the span of 3:03 and staved off Arkansas' attempted comeback to upset the No. 17 Razorbacks 38-23 on Saturday. Auburn's Derick Hall sacked and stripped KJ Jefferson in the Arkansas end zone and teammate Marcus Harris pounced on the fumble to give the Tigers a 21-17 lead early in the third quarter. On the ensuing drive, Jefferson marched the Razorbacks 45 yards, but on fourth-and-3 from the Auburn 30, he gained just a yard on a keeper.

One play later, Bo Nix found Demetris Robertson over the top for a 71-yard touchdown for Auburn. "It was huge. Obviously the play of the game. Those back-to-back were important," Nix said. "That just carried us on throughout the game into the fourth quarter when we got a chance to run the ball." Nix, less than a month after being benched in a 10-point win over Georgia State, had his best game of the season. He went 21 for 26 for 292 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He also ran for another 42 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown with 2:30 left that provided the game's final score. Jefferson did what he could to keep Arkansas around, throwing for 228 yards and two touchdowns and running for another 66 yards. Arkansas outgained Auburn 460 yards to 427. The Razorbacks had more first downs, a better third-down conversion rate and fewer penalties. But Auburn's big plays made the difference. - Auburn/AP College Football

  Bo Nix passed for a touchdown and ran for a score and Jarquez Hunter scored on a 1-yard run with 3:11 to give No. 22 Auburn its first lead and a 24-19 victory over LSU on Saturday night. Auburn (4-1, 1-0 Southeastern Conference), which had not won at LSU's Tiger Stadium since 1999, secured the victory when Bydarrius Knighten intercepted Max Johnson's pass on fourth down at the Auburn 39 with 1:09 left. Nix frustrated LSU (3-2, 1-1) with his feet whether he was scrambling or running by design. His 5-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter, capped a series in which he ran on three of the final four plays for 23 yards. The touchdown pulled Auburn to 19-17 early in the fourth quarter, and that score stood until Nix led a 92-yard, 11-play, winning drive highlighted by Hunter's 44-yard run on a pitch to the left side.

Ducking under tacklers or spinning away from them, Nix also converted several extended scrambles behind the line of scrimmage into pivotal completions. The most unlikely such play - arguably one of the highlights in all of college football on the day - saw Nix spin away from multiple pass rushers, traverse more than half the width of the field and rifle a fourth-down touchdown strike to Tyler Fromm moments before he was engulfed by defenders along left sideline. The play cut LSU's lead to 13-7 in the second quarter. Shortly before the half ended, Nix threw for first down during another fourth-down scramble, setting up a field goal that made it 13-10. Nix finished 23 of 44 for 255 yards without a turnover. He also rushed for 74 yards. - Auburn/AP College Football

  All it took was one game for Auburn to enter the national rankings under first-year head coach Bryan Harsin. After starting the season unranked, Auburn debuted at No. 25 in the latest AP top 25 following its 60-10 dismantling of Akron in the team's season opener at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn is one of six SEC teams ranked in this week's AP top 25, joining top-ranked Alabama, No. 2 Georgia (which moved up three spots after its season-opening win against Clemson), No. 5 Texas A&M, No. 13 Florida and No. 20 Ole Miss. LSU, which was ranked in the preseason AP poll, fell out of the top 25 following its loss at UCLA in Week 1. Auburn's entrance into the AP top 25 marks the earliest for the team under a first-year head coach in program history. - Birmingham News

  Bo Nix passed for 275 yards and three touchdowns in just over a half, and Auburn gave new coach Bryan Harsin a 60-10 cakewalk in his debut against Akron Saturday night in the season opener for both teams. It was a promising beginning even if it came against five-touchdown underdogs, especially for an offense and quarterback that had drawn some criticism the past couple of years. It was the most points for an Auburn coaching debut. "Today was an example of what we're capable of doing if we go out there and play good football," said Harsin, who returned to the office from COVID-19 on Monday. "And that's been the message for a while is just playing good ball, taking care of it, doing things in situational football where we execute." Nix was nearly flawless his first time running the offense of Harsin and coordinator Mike Bobo, going 20-of-22 passing while hitting a couple of wide-open receivers for touchdowns.

He set the Auburn record for highest completion percentage (90.9) in a game with a minimum of 20 attempts. Nix said the reason for that level of execution was easy to explain: The offensive line play. "It's up front and they started running the ball really well early and that opened everything up," Nix said. "And they kind of had their way tonight." Auburn sprinted to a 37-0 halftime lead and scored on its first eight drives, reaching the end zone on seven of them. - Auburn/AP College Football

  Bo Nix's first two seasons at Auburn have been dotted with criticism - at times warranted and at others a stretch. Nix, a starter for all 24 of his career games, has heard it all and has always tried to drown it out. But he knows it's there, and it likely always will be, to some extent, regardless of how he performs on the field. "In college, I feel like no matter what side you're on, you could get bad-mouthed and criticized," Nix said. "It goes with the territory. I knew coming to Auburn what I was going to face. I knew it was going to be difficult...So, each and every time, every moment of criticism, you've just got to reflect on where you are and what you're doing." For Nix, the where is simple: He's entering his junior year at Auburn, his third season as the Tigers' starting quarterback - and with a third different offensive coordinator (Mike Bobo), a new head coach (Bryan Harsin) and a considerably different offensive system.

As for what he's doing? The former five-star is aiming to put two seasons of inconsistency behind him and take that next step forward at quarterback. Since being named Auburn's starting quarterback as a true freshman in 2019, beating out Malik Willis and Joey Gatewood over the course of spring and fall practices that year, Nix's time as QB1 has been a rollercoaster ride. He has delivered some indelible highs, like his game-winning touchdown pass against Oregon in his first career game, as well as one last season against Ole Miss. There have also been the frustrating lows, like his three-interception performances in road losses to Florida and South Carolina the last two seasons. His performance has often oscillated between good-to-great and mediocre, as he has completed 58.7 percent of his career passes - yet to eclipse the 60 percent mark in a season - for 4,957 yards, 28 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. - Birmingham News

  Auburn will begin the Bryan Harsin era ranked outside the top-25 in the AP poll. The Tigers were unranked in the preseason AP poll, which was released Monday morning, but they were among the top teams outside the top 25 to receives votes. Auburn was fifth among the "others receiving votes" in the poll, placing the Tigers ostensibly ranked 30th in the country heading into the 2021 season. Five SEC teams are ranked in the preseason AP poll, including No. 1 Alabama, No. 5 Georgia, No. 6 Texas A&M, No. 13 Florida and No. 16 LSU. Auburn faces four of those teams this season, with the Tide and Bulldogs visiting Jordan-Hare Stadium on Nov. 27 and Oct. 9, respectively, while the program will travel to both Baton Rouge, La., on Oct. 2 and College Station, Texas, on Nov. 6. - Birmingham News

  The USA Today football coaches' poll was released Tuesday and Auburn was left unranked outside the top 25. It's the first time Auburn's been unranked in the preseason coaches' poll since 2016. Rival Alabama is No. 1 and rival Georgia is No. 5. Outside expectations are low for Auburn now in its first season under Bryan Harsin. The media picked Auburn to finish fifth in the SEC West at SEC Media Days, which would be Auburn's worst finish in the division since 2015. Auburn was ranked No. 11 in the coaches' poll going into the 2020 season. The Tigers were ranked No. 16 going into 2019, No. 10 going into 2018 and No. 13 going into 2017. - Opelika-Auburn News

  Bo Nix knows better than anyone his place in Auburn football history. He isn't just a player. He's a lifer. The son of an Auburn man who wears his father's number on his jersey, Nix could rattle off every Auburn coach since Shug Jordan if you asked him. So he knows what a pivotal time it is on the Plains as Auburn enters a new era under Bryan Harsin. He also knows he could play better. And if being his own biggest critic wasn't enough, he hears the outside criticism, too. Still, he's unflappable going into his junior season. And after lessons learned the hard way at Auburn, he could be a better player for the way he deals with the pressure - and a better Auburn man, too. "I know who I am, and that's important," Nix said on the podium.

Nix stood up in the spotlight Thursday at SEC Media Days with all the poise of the Auburn football quarterback he's always wanted to be. He put his teammates first like a leader, he deferred to his coaching like a listener, and he made it clear to everyone in the room that he isn't scared of Alabama. And when he said he knew he was, he showed his mind is made up as he enters a new season of challenges: He isn't afraid of the moment, because he isn't afraid of making mistakes. "Tomorrow the sun will come up," Nix said, pointing to his faith. "Especially after games, I can get up and I can go to church and kind of reset my life and know that, no matter what happens, football will end one day, and it's just all about what kind of impact I can have on the lives of others." - Opelika-Auburn News

  The outside expectations for Bryan Harsin's first season in the SEC have been set. Auburn was predicted to finish fifth in the SEC West this season by the league's media members this week at SEC Media Days, the conference announced Friday. The Tigers were picked to finish behind defending national champion Alabama, Texas A&M, LSU and Ole Miss in the division. Alabama was also overwhelmingly predicted to claim the SEC title this year, while six other teams also received votes to win the SEC championship: Georgia (45), Ole Miss (1), Texas A&M (1), Florida (1), South Carolina (1) and Kentucky (1). Auburn and Mississippi State were the only two teams in the SEC West not to receive a first-place vote to win the division. - Birmingham News

  Bo Nix said he has adjusted well to changes in the Auburn football coaching staff. The 6-foot-3, 214-pound junior quarterback said he is happy on what he sees so far from the Tigers under Bryan Harsin, who took the Auburn job after spending the last seven seasons as Boise State's coach. "I think I've adapted well," Nix said while attending the Manning Passing Academy at Nicholls on Friday. "They've done a great job of coming in and focusing on what we can do and what we're good at. They are feeding the offense with the players that we have." Nix said he knows Harsin, a former Boise State quarterback, has a history of developing them. Harsin was the quarterbacks coach there from 2006-10 and worked with them when he was promoted, too. Boise State had four 3,000-yard passers (Taylor Tharp, Kellen Moore, Grant Hedrick and Brett Rypien) during that time.

Nix said he sees a lot of potential in Auburn's offensive attack. "I think we're going to have a good, solid and disciplined team," Nix said. "Offensively we are going to have a downhill rushing attack and an explosive passing game with some play action stuff. We'll rely on the running game to develop some stuff in the passing game." Nix said he grew as a passer in 2020. He completed 59.9% of his passes for 2,415 yards, 219.5 yards per game, 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for seven touchdowns. "I've learned a lot from last season," Nix said. "I've had a lot of takeaways from the year that I can learn from. Most of it just being consistent and well-prepared and not taking anything for granted." - The News-Star

  Auburn quarterback Bo Nix has another new opportunity thanks to the NCAA's name, image and likeness rules, and this one is a family affair. Nix will host a quarterback skills camp at Pinson Valley High School on July 28. The camp will be for children from rising third graders to rising 12th graders with a cost of $80 per camper. Auburn offensive coordinator Mike Bobo outlined what he wants the Tigers' offense to look like this fall. Nix won't be the only one at his high school alma mater showing the campers how things are done. Nix's father, former Auburn quarterback and current Central-Phenix City head coach Patrick Nix, will also help lead the camp as well as Nix's younger brother Caleb, who is a rising senior at Central. Nix's grandfather Conrad, who won 300 games as a high school coach in Georgia and Alabama, will also help lead the camp. - Opelika-Auburn News

  According to SportsBettingDime's strength-of-schedule formula, Auburn has the third-toughest schedule in the nation behind only Arkansas and Kansas. Texas and Oklahoma State round out the five toughest schedules in the country; UTEP, meanwhile, has the nation's easiest schedule followed by Hawaii, Charlotte, Florida International and UTSA. SBD's rating system is based upon opponents' efficiency ratings from last season minus the production lost from the 2020 team along with recruiting rankings and major transfers added and lost. The formula is then adjusted for each game based upon home and road status.

Auburn opens the season with home games against Akron on Sept. 4 and Alabama State on Sept. 11 before traveling to face Penn State on Sept. 18. The Tigers then host Georgia State on Sept. 25 before traveling to LSU on Oct. 2, hosting Georgia on Oct. 9, traveling to Arkansas on Oct. 16 then having a bye week. The Tigers finish October with a home matchup against Ole Miss on Oct. 30 before traveling to Texas A&M on Nov. 6, hosting Mississippi State on Nov. 13, traveling to South Carolina on Nov. 20 then hosting Alabama for the Iron Bowl on Nov. 27. - Opelika-Auburn News

  The spring forced some adjustments for all the quarterbacks given Bobo's offense has them under center much more than the previous offense did. According to Bobo, it was Nix who handled that transition the best early on. Bobo praised Nix back on March 22 for the way the quarterback has worked, and he noted how Nix is always asking a lot of questions when he's in the room with his new play-caller and the other quarterbacks. The new offensive coordinator also stressed improving Nix's footwork and his understanding of his passing progressions through the team's 15 spring practices. Harsin made sure to lend a helping hand with Nix as well.

During the Tigers' open practice on March 20, Harsin was seen regularly consulting with Nix after plays, likely discussing what Nix saw and the outcome of each attempt. Bobo made sure to not put too much on Davis given it was his first spring, but he said the newest Auburn quarterback has a strong arm and a good throwing motion. Auburn's spring game offered little surprise as far as the breakdown of the quarterbacks. Nix led the first-team offense and ended the afternoon with a 12-of-20 passing line for 112 yards and one touchdown. Loy had the second-most passing attempts (12), Davis had three attempts - as well as an impressive head fake that led to a 10-yard scramble - and Garnett had one. - Opelika-Auburn News

  Bo Nix didn't light things up on A-Day; he didn't have to put up gaudy numbers in a glorified scrimmage - but he did show progress in a key area that first-year head coach Bryan Harsin has harped on throughout the spring: his decision-making with the ball in his hands. Nix completed 12-of-20 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown during Auburn's annual A-Day spring game, adding another 29 yards on five carries while displaying improved decision-making in running the Tigers' new-look offense. "We've seen Bo's got escapability, and we know he can throw it, but I thought he made good decisions," Harsin said. "...Overall, his efficiency in making decisions was one (thing that stood out)."

Nix has progressed in his first spring under Harsin and new offensive coordinator Mike Bobo while familiarizing himself with his third different offensive system in as many years at Auburn. In what has been a critical spring for his development, the third-year starter showed a firm understanding of the Tigers' base offense during Saturday's spring game, which represented a culmination of everything the new staff has thrown at Nix this spring. - Birmingham News

  Nix faced several true challenges leading up to his sophomore season in 2020, namely learning how to play under a new offensive coordinator despite a limited offseason due to the coronavirus pandemic. While those were unfavorable situations, they ultimately don't absolve Nix of having some of the same issues as a sophomore that he had as a freshman. The good news for Nix is he has two coaches in Harsin and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo who have built their reputations on developing effective quarterbacks. Bobo mentioned on March 22 that Nix is keying in on his footwork and his progressions, and during the Tigers' open practice on March 20 Harsin repeatedly took Nix aside and discussed several plays after the fact. Nix's talent is undeniable, but harnessing his ability and doing so consistently has yet to happen. The A-Day scrimmage should offer an early glimpse at Harsin and Bobo's early influence on Nix. - Opelika-Auburn News

  Auburn quarterback Bo Nix and head coach Bryan Harsin are still getting to know each other during their first spring together, but in the last two weeks both gave nearly identical answers on a very important topic. Nix's development has been one of the primary concerns for Auburn during spring practice, and Harsin and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo's backgrounds playing and coaching the quarterback position undoubtedly made the head coach-play caller an attractive pairing.

Nix and Harsin were asked over a series of days about what aspects of the game Nix needs to concentrate on the most, and both the quarterback and his head coach explained there's no shortage of ways Nix can up his game. "Obviously, as a quarterback and as a competitor, really everything. Every part of my game I want to get better," Nix said on March 17. "I want to be consistent, especially from the pocket. Gauging my receivers … getting on the same page as those guys, sticking in the pocket and making throws. I feel like this spring is going to be really good because last year we didn't have one. So this year, there's extra practice time to sharpen some things like feet - having quick feet - and just the little things that play a part in playing quarterback." - Birmingham News
