EUGENE -- Oregon's second overtime game of the season resulted in the program's biggest win in years as the Ducks knocked off seventh-ranked Washington, 30-27 at Autzen Stadium Saturday.

After losing to Stanford in their first overtime game of the season (a game in which they led 24-7 in the second half), Oregon made up for a heartbreaking loss with a Mario Cristobal era-defining win. Redshirt freshman running back C.J. Verdell, the man who fumbled against Stanford and contributed to the team's only loss of the season, was the hero Saturday.

Verdell carried the ball 29 times for 111 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner in overtime. 

The Ducks and Huskies were as close as you can get all game long. They were tied 10-10 at the end of the first quarter. They were tied 17-17 at halftime and at the end of the third quarter. They, of course, were tied 24-24 at the end of regulation, sending the game to overtime. 

The Huskies had a chance to win the game on a 37-yard field goal with just three seconds left, but kicker Peyton Henry pulled it wide right. That sent the game to overtime. 

On the first play of overtime, Washington running back Kamari Pleasant scampered inside the Ducks' 10-yard line, setting up first and goal. The Ducks' defense stood tall, though, getting stops on the next three plays, forcing Henry to kick a chip shot field goal to take a 27-24 lead. 

After a holding penalty on third and one, Oregon was faced with a third and 11 from the 26-yard line. Quarterback Justin Herbert fired it to star receiver Dillon Mitchell, who got the first down and more. On third and 6, the Ducks dialed up a run to Verdell, who sprinted untouched into the end zone to give the Ducks the 30-27 win. 

Herbert finished 18-for-32 for 202 yards and two touchdowns. 

Sunday, the new AP and Coach's Top 25 polls will be released and we can expect the Ducks to make a big jump after knocking off the No. 7 team in the country.

Next up for Oregon is Washington State on the road. Kick off is at 4:30 p.m. next Saturday.
