Mariota's TD pass in final minute sends Ducks over Beavers
Eugene, OR (SportsNetwork.com) - Marcus Mariota's touchdown pass to Josh Huff with 29 seconds left lifted 12th-ranked Oregon to a 36-35 win over Oregon State in the 117th installment of the Civil War.
Victor Bolden broke off a 25-yard touchdown run to put the Beavers in front 35-30 with 1:38 left.
Mariota then completed four of his next five passes to get the Ducks deep into the Oregon State zone. After his pass on 2nd-and-5 fell incomplete, Thomas Tyner broke off a seven-yard rush to give Oregon a fresh set of downs.
Two plays later, Mariota found Huff in the end zone for a 12-yard touchdown completion to give Oregon (10-2, 7-2 Pac-12) the decisive margin.
Oregon State (6-6, 4-5) hasn't taken down Oregon since 2007 when it beat the Ducks, 38-31, in overtime.
