Darron Thomas threw for 294 yards and four touchdowns, leading the Oregon Ducks to a 49-21 win over the Oregon St. Beavers in the 115th edition of the Civil War Saturday afternoon at Autzen Stadium in Eugene. The win clinched the Pac-12 North Division for the Ducks, who will host the UCLA Bruins in the the inaugural Pac-12 Football Championship Game next Friday night.
LaMichael James ran for 139 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown, but also left the game in the third quarter with a left elbow injury and did not return. His status for next week is unknown. The Ducks (10-2, 8-1) racked up 667 yards of offense against the Beavers, including 373 yards on the ground, as well as 40 first downs.
Oregon and Pac-12 South Division representative UCLA (6-5, 5-3) didn't play one another this season, but they did battle in the previous five years. Oregon has beaten UCLA in their last three meetings and has won eight of their last 10 matchups dating back to 2000.
The inaugural Pac-12 Championship Football Game will be played on Friday, December 2 at 5 p.m. PT on Fox. For more UCLA football news and information, be sure to read Bruins Nation.
