With the Pac-12 North lead at stake, the Ducks traveled to Seattle to square off with arch-rival Washington.

Down a few scores late in the 3rd, the Ducks got a touchdown from Cyrus Habibi-Likio to cut the deficit to seven. After a Washington field goal, the Ducks responded with a 4th-down TD pass from Herbert to Mycah Pittman to end the 3rd Quarter that would cut Washington's lead to three. Midway through the 4th Quarter, still down by a field goal, the Ducks went to the ground attack to get close enough for Justin Herbert's five-yard TD strike to Jaylon Redd to give the Ducks the lead. Washington wouldn't bow down as they sustained a good drive late in the 4th, but an incomplete pass on 4th and 3 with a minute to go gave Oregon the win. The Ducks would take a three game lead in the Pac-12 North with only five games to go.

The Ducks would meet the Big Ten runner-up, the 10–3 Wisconsin Badgers, in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for a rematch of the 2012 Rose Bowl. The game started out well for Oregon as they scored a touchdown on their opening possession from Justin Herbert on a QB run. The Badgers would return the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown to tie it up. After Wisconsin kicked a field goal to make it 10–7, Herbert ran for his second score of the game to give Oregon the lead, 14–10. Wisconsin would respond as Jack Coan found Quintez Cephus for a short touchdown to give Wisconsin a 17–14 lead at halftime. Wisconsin did not get much going on their first drive of the 3rd quarter, leading to a punt. But Oregon's special teams managed to block the punt and Brady Breeze took the blocked punt to the end zone to put Oregon up 21–17. Wisconsin's defense held off the Ducks offense and put up the next 10 points to go up 27–21 in the 4th quarter. But during a possession late in the game, Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor fumbled the football, which was recovered by Oregon. On the next play, Herbert would keep it himself for a 30-yard touchdown run, his third of the game, to put the Ducks up 28–27. The Ducks defense would stop the Badgers on their final two possessions and Oregon ran out the clock to secure the win. The Ducks won their first Rose Bowl since 2014 and finished the season 12–2 and Rose Bowl Champions.
