Nix and Johnson led the Ducks to the 35-6 road win over Utah. Nix was 24-of-31 passing for 248 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for another score. Johnson intercepted two passes as he led a defense that held Utah out of the end zone for the first time since 2018.
Nix is the first player to win this award multiple times this season and he also won three times last season. His fifth Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week award matches him with Marcus Mariota for the most by any Oregon player.
Punter Ross James was nominated for the special teams award by averaging 50 yards in his five punts and center Jackson Powers-Johnson was also nominated for offensive lineman of the week.
