12/07/2014 - Oregon punches ticket to playoff by dominating Arizona...No. 2 Oregon left little for the College Football Playoff selection committee to contemplate regarding the Ducks' postseason status. Oregon virtually assured itself a berth in the four-team national championship playoff by squashing the No. 7 Arizona Wildcats 51-13 on Friday in the Pac-12 championship game at Levi's Stadium. The Ducks (12-1) dominated the game, outgaining Arizona 640-224 and avenging their only loss of the season - a 31-24 Arizona victory in Eugene, Ore., on Oct. 2. Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota downplayed the revenge factor, though. "We had a lot of motivation to win this game," he said. "We didn't put much emphasis on (revenge), because that can be a distraction. We just played better this time."

Oregon scored more than 40 points for the eighth consecutive game, and Mariota - voted the game's most outstanding offensive player - probably improved his Heisman Trophy chances by completing 25 of 38 passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. He also rushed for three touchdowns and has accounted for a conference-record 53 touchdowns this season. "If this guy isn't what the Heisman Trophy is all about, then I'm in the wrong profession," Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said. Freshman running back Royce Freeman rushed for 114 yards for Oregon. The only question for the Ducks is whether they will be ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the final College Football Playoff rankings. In either case, Oregon will likely play its semifinal game in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. - The Sports Xchange
