EUGENE, Ore., Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to Josh Huff with 48 seconds left Friday, giving Oregon a 36-35 win over Oregon State.

The dramatic decision came in the 117th meeting between the rivals and allowed the No. 12 Ducks to finish the regular season with a 10-2 record. They wound up at 7-2 in the Pacific-12 North Division after their bid for a national title collapsed late in the season.

Mariota then led the Ducks 83 yards in 10 plays, hitting Huff with a scoring throw of 12 yards. A 2-point conversion attempt failed.

It was Oregon's sixth straight win over the Beavers.

Huff caught three touchdown passes and compiled 186 receiving yards on nine catches. Mariota went 17-of-34 for 285 yards, but was intercepted twice.

Oregon State scored 17 points in the second period to create a 17-17 tie at halftime Sean Mannion completed 29-of-47 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns with one interception.

The Beavers finished at 6-6 and were 4-4 in the Pac-12 North.
