(AP) - Oregon can't dwell on what might have been this season, had quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. been healthy from the start.
The No. 18 Ducks (8-3, 6-2 Pac-12) need to prepare for the regular-season finale, the annual Civil War against Oregon State on Friday, and then await word on where they'll go in the postseason. An eighth straight 10-win season is still within reach.
Oregon has won five in a row, but its three losses - to Michigan St., Utah and surging Washington State - thwarted a second straight Pac-12 North title. The Ducks took care of their end Saturday with a 48-28 victory over then-No. 22 USC, but Stanford won the Big Game against California to clinch the Pac-12 championship game berth and a shot at the Rose Bowl.
