Bo Nix, Oregon football demolish Liberty Flames in Fiesta Bowl

Though the No. 8 Oregon football team gave up the game’s first score, the Ducks came back with a vengeance and dominated No. 23 Liberty in the Fiesta Bowl on New Year’s Day, 45-6, behind a record-breaking outing from quarterback Bo Nix at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

In his last collegiate game, Nix broke four records, including the national FBS record for completion percentage in a single season, previously held by Alabama’s Mac Jones (2020). Nix finished the year with a 77.44% completion percentage, and also broke Marcus Mariota’s (2014) single season record for touchdown passes and yards, finishing with 45 touchdowns and 4,508 yards, respectively. His five touchdown passes are also the most any Oregon quarterback has ever thrown in a bowl game.
