The context for all of this is that this is the final Pac-12 game as it exists today; although the conference name may endure in some capacity, all of the league’s schools, with the exception of Oregon State and Washington State, will be moving to other conferences in the upcoming season. Oregon and Washington will play as rivals in the Big Ten Conference, while their respective state rivals will attempt to preserve the Pac-12 in some capacity through a partnership with the Mountain West. Both Michael Penix Jr. and Bo Nix, the reigning Heisman Trophy contenders, and Bo Nix and Oregon State had a prime-time stage to make a lasting impression on voters, and the rivals were probably competing for a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Washington built a 20-3 lead on Friday night, but Oregon rallied with 21 straight points to take the lead. From there, it was a battle to the finish, with Washington coming out on top. Michael Penix Jr. passed for 319 yards and a touchdown, earning player of the game honors. Dillon Johnson balanced Penix with 152 yards of tough running and two touchdowns on the ground. Now, Washington awaits a likely berth in the CFP on Sunday. Here are the top moments!

The Washington Huskies are getting ready to play the Oregon Ducks in the Pac-12 Conference Championship Game, which will determine who advances to the College Football Playoffs and who is eliminated from the running. This matchup pits the Huskies against the Ducks for the second time this season.

It is challenging to obtain injury updates because the media is not permitted to attend practice in advance of the Pac-12 Championship Game. Nevertheless, there are a few players to be aware of: offensive lineman Gaard Memmelaar, a sophomore, has been sidelined since the start of the season due to an injury that has not been made public. It is unlikely that he will return to the field during the bowl game. Additionally, running back Dillon Johnson has been the team’s best back all season long, averaging 173 carries for 961 yards (5.6 yards per attempt) and 12 rushing touchdowns. Additionally, he has 18 receptions for 141 yards (7.8 yards per reception).
