The Oregon Ducks outlasted Washington Saturday in front of a packed Autzen Stadium. The sold out crowd witnessed the second overtime game of the 2018 season, but this one had a dramatically different outcome than the disappointing loss to Stanford. After missing a 37 yard field goal on the last play of regulation that would have won the game for Washington, the game went into overtime 24-24. The Ducks held Washington to 3 points in their first drive in overtime. On Oregon’s first overtime possession QB Justin Herbert guided the Ducks to a touchdown and a 30-27  win, avenging two straight losses to the hated rival Huskies. Oregon now holds the lead in the Pac 12 North Division headed into the heart of conference play.
