Terrance Ferguson hauled in the play of the first half in the Pac-12 Championship Game. And it came at the very end of the half.

With No. 3 Washington leading 20-3 and the clock winding down on the half, No. 5 Oregon faced a third-and-goal with less than 30 seconds remaining on the clock. When Bucky Irving was stuffed on the previous play, memories of the first meeting in Seattle — when Oregon was stopped on fourth down to end the first half without points — crept back in.

The Ducks rolled quarterback Bo Nix to the right, Ferguson slipped behind the defense, and then hauled in a one-handed touchdown with nine seconds.

Washington kneeled on the ball to take a 20-10 lead into the halftime break.

Oregon receives the ball to start the second half.

UW dominated the first half. Oregon’s first two drives featured three-and-outs. Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr. completed 16 of his 22 passes for 192 yards. UW hit on four explosive pass plays.

But the Ducks were able to hold UW to field goals twice inside the 30-yard-line and that looms large heading into the second half. The Ducks took over with 1:39 to play in the first half and drove 75 yards in seven plays and 1:30 to score.

The drive was also aided by a controversial pass interference call on an incompletion that would have set up a third-and-10 play for the Ducks from the UW 24. Three plays later, Ferguson scored his fourth touchdown of the season.
