OR fall late to Auburn 27-21”

Nix barely converted a fourth-and-3 at midfield on the final drive when he tucked and ran. On 3rd and 1, Auburn put in Whitlow's hands again and he picked up the first down.

The Tigers, who trailed 21-6 late in the third quarter, delivered another opening-weekend blow to the Pac-12.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound McCormick, who broke his left fibula during last year's season opener against Bowling Green and missed the remainder of the season, is listed as a co-starter with redshirt-senior Jake Breeland, who had four catches for 26 yards. Defensive end Big Kat Bryant scooped it up and ran 83 yards to the OR 3, though the Tigers had to settle for a field goal.

Herbert led the Ducks with 242 yards passing and one touchdown pass. Oregon's leading rusher was C.J Verdell who had 76 yards rushing and one touchdown.

OR will take on Nevada at Autzen Stadium on Saturday looking to win their first game of the season. Jevon Holland had an 81-yard punt return to the Auburn 9, setting up a chance to go up 21-3.

Auburn's offense stalled in the red zone as they had to settle for a field goal after an 83 yard fumble recovery from Big Cat Bryant. 21 seconds. On 3rd and 10, Nix threw an out route to Williams that gave Auburn a first down well within Carlson's range and with 16 seconds left.

Both Auburn and OR are Top 25 teams, but the Tigers should be the higher-ranked of the two in the next poll. OR would get one chance to throw a hail mary but it would fall short to give Auburn a crucial win to start the season.

Auburn plays at home Saturday night against Tulane.
