Ducks battle back to win 106th Rose Bowl


Justin Herbert rushed for three touchdowns, the last a 30-yard burst with 7:41 to play in the 4th quarter, to lead Oregon past Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual. In his final collegiate game playing for the team he worshiped as a kid growing up in Eugene, Herbert used his legs more than his arm to will the Ducks to the win and a 12-and-2 season.

Minnesota dominated the time of possession in beating Auburn in the Outback Bowl 31-24. Tyler Johnson had 12 receptions for 204 yards and two touchdowns. The Gophers also out-gained the Tigers on the ground 215 to 56 yards.

The VRBO Citrus Bowl was a yawner as Alabama beat up Michigan 35-16. Mac Jones threw three touchdown passes and Jerry Jeudy became the first Alabama player to top 200 receiving yards in a bowl game as the Crimson Tide roled.

George Pickens caught 12 passes for 175-yards and a touchdown as No. 5 George defeated 8th-ranked Baylor in the All State Sugar Bowl 26-14. Jake Fromm, the kid who once dawned a University of Washington uniform, led the Bulldogs completing 20-of-30 passes for 250-yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
