  Former Oregon Ducks quarterback Jay Butterfield will continue his career in the Mountain West. Butterfield, who entered the transfer portal last month, announced his commitment to San Jose State on Saturday. The 6-foot-6, 216-pound Butterfield was Oregon's third-team quarterback each of the past two seasons. He completed a one-yard pass against Eastern Washington this season and went 2 of 3 for 22 yards against Stony Brook in 2021.

A four-star prospect out of Brentwood, Calif., Butterfield was ranked No. 147 overall and No. 5 among pro style quarterbacks in the 2020 recruiting class. He's the 12th former UO player to commit to or sign with a new team this offseason, joining Jackson LaDuke, Sean Dollars and Adrian Jackson Jr. (Nevada), Seven McGee (Jackson State), Justin Flowe (Arizona), Dawson Jaramillo (NC State), Moliki Matavao (UCLA), Bradyn Swinson (LSU), Brandon Buckner (MTSU), Byron Cardwell Jr. (Cal) and Bram Walden (Arizona State). - The Oregonian

  Chevan Cordeiro passed for 340 yards and two touchdowns, Kairee Robinson ran for two big scores and San Jose State rallied for an emotional 35-28 victory over Nevada on Saturday night. San Jose State postponed its football game last weekend after freshman running back Camdan McWright was killed when he was hit by a school bus while riding a scooter near campus. SJSU started tonight's game by forming a 6 on the field in honor of McWright, who wore the number. Toa Taua had two touchdown runs to stake Nevada to a 14-7 lead at the half. The Wolf Pack's lead grew to 21-7 just 2:02 into the third quarter when Shane Illingworth connected with BJ Casteel for a 53-yard touchdown. Cordeiro answered with a 2-yard touchdown run and a 14-yard scoring toss to Shamar Garrett to pull San Jose State (5-2, 3-1 Mountain West Conference) even at 21-all.

Taua's third touchdown run - a 5-yarder - gave Nevada (2-7, 0-5) a 28-21 lead early in the fourth quarter. Kairee Robinson answered for San Jose State with a 2-yard scoring run to knot the score with 6:29 left to play. Two pass interference calls on Nevada's Isaiah Essissima kept the Spartans' drive alive. After a 13-yard kickoff return and an offside penalty gave Nevada the ball on their own 8-yard line, the Spartans defense forced a three-and-out. A 25-yard punt gave San Jose State the ball on the Wolf Pack 42. Six plays later Robinson ran it in from 5 yards out and the Spartans led for the first time with 1:10 left. Cade Hall had back-to-back sacks for SJSU and Alii Matau picked off Illingworth on third-and-13 to seal the victory. Cordeiro completed 33 of 45 passes for the Spartans. He hit Dominick Mazotti for a 10-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Robinson finished with 40 yards on 11 carries. Illingworth passed for 223 yards, completing 18 of 29 attempts, for the Wolf Pack. - San Jose State/AP College Football

  San Jose State has postponed its football game this weekend after a freshman running back was killed Friday when he was hit by a school bus while riding a scooter near campus. Athletic director Jeff Konya said Saturday's game against New Mexico State will be played later this season after the Spartans mourn the death of Camdan McWright. "We are all saddened by the tragic loss of Camdan McWright," Konya said. "The San Jose State community is a very close one, and the campus is devastated. We lost a very bright, talented young man too soon. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the McWright family."

The San Jose Unified School District bus had the green light when the 18-year-old McWright entered the crosswalk directly in the vehicle's path, the California Highway Patrol said. McWright died at the scene, about two blocks from the university, authorities said. No one was injured on the bus and the 14 students, ages 14 to 17, were escorted onto a second bus that drove them away from the scene, the highway patrol said. It said the 36-year-old bus driver pulled over and remained at the scene. Investigators don't believe alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. McWright, a running back, was previously a football star for St. Genevieve High School in Los Angeles, near his hometown of Sylmar. He had played in one game this season. - AP College Football
