EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Travis Wilson returned from a shoulder sprain and threw for 227 yards and four touchdowns in No. 18 Utah's 62-20 victory over No. 13 Oregon on Saturday night in the Pac-12 opener for both teams.

Wilson completed 18 of 30 passes, hitting nine receivers, and ran for 100 yards and another score for Utah (4-0). The lanky senior sprained his left shoulder two weeks ago against Utah State and sat out the Utes' victory last weekend over Fresno State.

It was Oregon's worst loss at home since falling 54-0 to Washington in 1977. Utah's 62 points were the most scored against a Pac-12 opponent since joining the league in 2011, and also the most the Ducks have ever allowed in Eugene.

Vernon Adams Jr. started at quarterback for Oregon (2-2) despite a broken index finger that kept him out of the Ducks' victory last weekend over Georgia State, but he didn't last long and was replaced by backup Jeff Lockie in the second quarter.
