Oregon backup QB Anthony Brown throws first touchdown with the Ducks

Oregon Football / Oregon Athletics

The first drive for the Oregon Ducks in the Pac-12 Championship couldn’t have gone better.

After winning the toss and deferring to USC, senior corner Deommodore Lenoir intercepted a pass from USC quarterback Kedon Slovis and returned it down to the nine-yard-line.

After a dropped pass to Jaylon Redd and then a run from Travis Dye down to the two-yard-line, Ducks backup quarterback Anthony Brown trotted onto the field.

This was Brown’s first action at quarterback for the Ducks all season.

When everyone thought Brown was in for a quarterback designed run, he threw a pass out to the left to Redd for a touchdown.

Last season at Boston College, the 6’2”, 220-pound quarterback rushed the ball 33 times for 128 yards and two touchdowns in six games. Threw the air, Brown completed 81-of-137 passes for 1,250 yards and nine touchdowns in six games.
