The 2019-2020 Oregon Football season was one for the history books.

The Ducks finished with a 12-2 overall record, 8-1 in the Pac-12 conference, Pac-12 champions and Rose Bowl victors.

On Friday, the players and staff received their championship rings:

Here's how the Ducks earned these rings.

First, a dominant 37-15 win over Pac-12 south champion Utah in the Pac-12 championship. Running back CJ Verdell obliterated the Utes defense that was ranked No. 1 in the nation in run defense (allowing 70.2 yards per game on the ground) with 18 carries for 208 yards and three touchdowns. Verdell was named the MVP of the Pac-12 championship game.

That earned the Ducks a trip to the 2020 Rose Bowl against the Wisconsin Badgers. Oregonians Justin Herbert and Brady Breeze scored all four of Oregon's touchdowns in a 28-27 win over the Badgers; three from the legs of Herbert and one special teams touchdown from Breeze.

These rings are well-deserved.
