Oregon penalized for taking a bow

In a game full of penalties, a late one by the Ducks proved to be costly.

On third-and-goal from Oregon's eight yard line, Ducks defender Tony Washington sacked Arizona QB Anu Solomon. He proceeded to run the middle of the field and take a bow, a celebration the officials deemed an unsportsmanlike. The penalty kept the drive alive, and the Wildcats would go on to score the touchdown go-ahead touchdown in a previously tied game.

It's worth noting Arizona got a similar penalty earlier in the game.
