Oregon Wins Scoring-Starved Redbox Bowl

Justin Herbert's touchdown pass to Dillon Mitchell was the first and only of the game, and proved to be the eventual game-winner for Oregon in the Redbox Bowl.

SANTA CLARA—It wasn’t pretty, or even watchable, but the Oregon Ducks escaped Levi’s Stadium with a 7-6 win over Michigan State in the Redbox Bowl.

The Ducks and Spartans combined for 17 punts—more punts than points—and four turnover-on-downs in a game that featured a mix of dominant defenses and inept offenses.

The first scoreless first half in Redbox Bowl history was followed by a pair of Michigan State field goals in the third quarter, and Dillon Mitchell’s eventual game winning touchdown in the fourth quarter.

It’s Oregon’s first win when scoring seven or fewer points since 1992.
