Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert has announced his intentions to remain in Eugene for one more season.

Expected to be the first quarterback taken in the 2019 draft, Herbert's return makes the Ducks the favorite to the win the Pac-12 in 2019 and could be enough for them to open next season in the top 10.

Herbert has thrown for 2985 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 8 picks so far this season. The Ducks will take on the Michigan State Spartans on New Year's Eve.
