No. 7 Oregon avoids stumble, rallies to top Washington 26-16

SEATTLE (AP) — Travis Dye rushed for a career-high 211 yards and one touchdown, Anthony Brown ran for one score and passed for another and No. 7 Oregon overcame a sluggish start to beat Washington 26-16. A year after the border rivals didn’t play due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the Huskies program, the Ducks fell behind early before running off 21 consecutive points and beat Washington for the seventh time in the past eight games played in Seattle. The Ducks avoided the kind of stumble that befell Michigan State earlier in the day and should give Oregon the chance of moving up in the College Football Playoff rankings.

Washington looking at sideline incident involving coach

SEATTLE (AP) — Washington says it’s looking into a sideline incident between coach Jimmy Lake and a player during the first half of Saturday night’s loss to No. 7 Oregon. Lake appeared to fling his right arm toward Ruperake Fuavai during a brief skirmish on the Washington sideline. Fuavai was exchanging words with Oregon’s Jaylon Redd. Washington athletic director Jen Cohen says the school is gathering more information. Lake said he did not strike the player and was trying to separate him before it could become a penalty.
