Nix, No. 13 Oregon rally past Texas Tech 38-30 as Shough loses to former team
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Bo Nix threw for 359 yards and two touchdowns, Jeffrey Bassa had a 45-yard interception return for a score in the final minute and No. 13 Oregon rallied for a 38-30 victory over Texas Tech. Tyler Shough threw for three TDs and ran for 101 yards and another score against his former team. It wasn’t enough to extend the Red Raiders’ school-record 23-game winning streak in home openers. The Ducks had twice rallied in the fourth quarter behind Nix, who led a pair of drives to go-ahead field goals. Shough was trying to answer for a second time with a drive to a field goal when Brandon Dorlus hit Shough as he was throwing. The ball went straight to Bassa for the easy score.
