Oregon QB Bo Nix gametime decision against Utah

Oregon QB Bo Nix gametime decision against Utah

Oregon quarterback Bo Nix It’s still a gametime decision for the No. 12 Ducks’ game with No. 10 Utah on Saturday, sources told ESPN.

The Knicks injured his ankle in Oregon’s loss to Washington last week and is expected to go through a pre-game warmup at Autzen Stadium. The sources said the team will make a decision on the Knicks after warm-ups, and it is clear that the medical staff is part of the consultation.

If the Knicks can’t go, it will be a huge loss for the Ducks. The Knicks have been an inspiration to Oregon after moving from Auburn and emerging as one of the best players in college football.

Nicks completed 73% of his passes, threw 24 touchdowns and gained 2,775 passing yards this season. Even more impressive, the Knicks cut the turnover rate and were a model of efficiency, throwing only five interceptions in 300 attempts.

If the Knicks go out, Oregon will turn to a freshman Ty Thompson. With the Knicks’ changing situation, Thompson has received significant reps at practice and is considered ready by the staff if called upon. Thompson is a former ESPN 300 recruit and has 159 career yards and appeared in six games for the Ducks this season. The game hasn’t started yet.

Oregon goes into Saturday’s game 8-2, after coming off its opener against Georgia in Atlanta and losing to Washington, 37-34, at Autzen Stadium last week.

Oregon was physically abused by Utah in a pair of games last season, losing by a combined score of 76-17. The Utes dominated the line of scrimmage, including holding the Ducks to a total of 221 yards in a Pac-12 key game.
