Following the Oregon Ducks‘ win over UCLA on Saturday, the nation has officially tuned in to the Bo Nix redemption tour in Eugene. After a poor start to the season versus Georgia, the former Auburn Tiger has led the Ducks to six wins, each with final scores above 40 points.

In Nix’s post-game press conference, a reporter asked the quarterback to describe factors that have led to his performing at levels he only flashed occasionally at Auburn.

“Well, I think obviously there’s a whole lot of dynamics that go into it,” Nix said. “Different schedules you’re playing, different teams you’re playing, different personnel, different staffs, different offensive schemes, so it’s hard to say that the other coaches didn’t get it out of me because at times I was doing the same thing at Auburn.

“It was just the consistent part. We’re doing that now and it speaks to all 11 of us. All 11 of us who are out there are being consistent. Every once in a while we’ll have a hiccup drive and we’ll have to go three-and-out and punt, but we know it’s not going to happen a second time. Consistency is the main thing we’re doing offensively right now.”

Nix didn’t forget to mention all the work that goes on behind the scenes to get the Ducks executing at such a high level.

“Credit to our coaching,” Nix said. “Our coaching staff is doing a great job offensively. Great with personnel, communication on the sideline, and great play calling, our head coach is allowing us to be aggressive. It’s easy to be in my position because all I got to do is just make sure the ball gets to the right person.”

Nix leads Oregon to primetime win over UCLA

Through seven games this season, Nix has thrown for 1,809 yards and 17 touchdowns, with 3 interceptions. He also has 382 rush yards and 8 more touchdowns on the ground. His completion percentage is 71.5%, which is 10 points higher than his completion rate in any season at Auburn.

On Saturday, Nix went 22-for-28 with 283 passing yards, 51 rushing yards and five touchdowns.

The former Tiger is in the mix for several personal accolades after his performance in Week 8. He already earned the Walter Camp Football Foundation offensive player of the week award, which the foundation announced on Sunday.
