Nix Receives Academic Honors, Dec. 7

UO release – LAS VEGAS — For the second time in five years, college football’s premier award for athletic and academic achievement was bestowed upon an Oregon quarterback. Four years after Justin Herbert became the first UO winner of the William V. Campbell Trophy, senior quarterback Bo Nix was presented with the honor Tuesday at the 65th National Football Foundation Awards dinner. The Campbell Trophy recognizes an individual for combined success in athletics, academics and leadership. Nix, who will be in New York City this weekend as a Heisman Trophy finalist, graduated magna cum laude from Auburn before joining the Ducks for the last two seasons as a graduate student in public relations. He was named Pac-12 Football Scholar-Athlete Of The Year last week, and earlier Tuesday was named the conference’s offensive player of the year as well.
