It hasn't been a good few minutes for college football's best quarterbacks. Moments after undefeated UCF's McKenzie Milton went down with an extremely gruesome leg injury, Oregon's Justin Herbert has been knocked out of tonight's Civil War game.

Oregon is up 28-3 early in the second half against rival Oregon State.

In the first half, Herbert, a potential first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, was 9-for-12 for 102 yards and a touchdown.

Herbert was hit hard by a Beavers defender late in the first half, and looked like he suffered a hang injury.

Herbert was spotted on a cart leaving the locker room after the play.

With the Justin Herbert injury, Braxton Burmeister will be tasked with finishing out the rivalry game.

Freshman Tyler Shough entered the game after Herbert left, and handed it off twice. Reporters at the game say it is Burmeister, a sophomore, who is leading the Ducks now.

Burmeister has thrown just eight passes this season, completing four for 27 yards.

Last season, he threw for 330 yards, two touchdowns, and six interceptions.

Luckily for Oregon, the rushing game has been impressive so far. C.J. Verdell has 16 carries for 125 yards and two scores, while Travis Dye has carried the ball 19 times for 106 yards and a score.
