EUGENE, Ore. (AP) The Ducks obviously missed Justin Herbert.
Oregon's starting quarterback returned after a five-game absence and helped lead the team to a 48-28 victory over Arizona on Saturday night. Royce Freeman ran for four touchdowns in the win, which made Ducks (6-5, 3-4) bowl eligible in coach Willie Taggart's first year as head coach.
"It was just a lot of fun to be back out there," said Herbert, who threw for 235 yards and a score in his first game back since fracturing his collarbone. "We've got great guys on this team and it's so much fun to be part of this and it's awesome to play in that game."
