Oregon's Nix starts vs. Utah
After transferring from Auburn ahead of the season, Nix has produced the best campaign of his college career. He's thrown for a career-high 24 touchdowns and 2,775 yards while adding 512 yards and 14 scores on the ground.
Redshirt freshman Ty Thompson, who has yet to start a game, reportedly received significant reps in practice this week with Nix's status uncertain coming into the contest.
Both Oregon and Utah enter the game with an 8-2 record.
