Just when I think I couldn’t be more impressed with Bo Nix, the Oregon quarterback goes out and has another sparkling performance in a win.
On Saturday, the Ducks dropped 63 points on Cal and Nix had himself 386 yards and four touchdowns with a pick and he completed over 75 percent of his passes yet again.
Nix has been one of the most accurate passers in the nation this season, completing 78 percent of his throws which is six percent higher than his previous career high from last year. He just doesn’t make a ton of bad throws or mistakes as he has 25 touchdowns and his interception against Cal last week was only his second of the season. That’s a heck of a touchdown-to-interception ratio.
The former Auburn quarterback also has five rushing touchdowns this year.
Probably the most improved quarterback in college football over the past two seasons, Nix is very much alive in the Heisman race with chances to prove himself against USC and Oregon State in the final three weeks of the season.
