Oregon improved to 4–7 on the season after salvaging a big upset win over Utah in the final seconds on Saturday.

A long throw from Justin Herbert to Darren Carrington in the end zone connected, and Carrington managed to stay in bounds and complete the catch to flip the 30–28 victory.

After much discussion about Mark Helfrich’s job security, the win could prove major for the Ducks, who finish the season against in-state rival Oregon State next weekend.

The win also clutters up the race in the Pac-12 South, with Utah now dropping behind USC and Colorado. The Trojans were pretty happy with the result, or so they tweeted.
