We look back at the 2019 Oregon football season, from the lows of the Auburn loss to the highs of the Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin.

The doldrums of the offseason are upon us, after LSU’s national championship victory over Clemson, the long and odious offseason has begun. What better way to forget that college football is on its annual hiatus than looking back at the recently concluded 2019 season.

For this edition of the season recaps, we will take a look back at the many highlights and few lowlights of the Oregon Ducks’ 2019 campaign.

Auburn loss dents playoff hopes

The Oregon Ducks came into 2019 with high expectations, many pundits felt that they could compete for a College Football Playoff spot as evidenced by being voted 11th in the preseason polls.

The season opener against the Auburn Tigers was the premier game of the opening week pitting the pre-season 11th ranked Ducks against the preseason 16th-ranked Tigers.

After thoroughly dominating the first half, yet failing to deliver a knockout blow, the Ducks watched the Tigers storm down the field scoring on a 26-yard pass from true freshman quarterback Bo Nix with nine seconds remaining in regulation, giving the Tigers the win and severely denting the Ducks playoff hopes.
