Ducks' Remington reinstated; Oregon locks up home-and-home with Buckeyes

EUGENE — Oregon has lifted the suspension for senior defensive tackle Isaac Remington.

The decision came after The Register-Guard newspaper reported that Eugene prosecutors had decided not to pursue a driving under the influence charge against Remington.

Remington was pulled over on Oct. 12 and cited for DUI. Oregon coach Chip Kelly suspended him indefinitely, "pending clarification of the incident."

Remington missed the second-ranked Ducks' victory over Arizona State last Thursday night. Oregon hosts Colorado this Saturday.

He has 12 tackles in six games this season.


Ohio State and Oregon have agreed to a home-and-home series with games to be played in 2020 in Eugene, and in 2021 in Ohio Stadium.

The Buckeyes and the Ducks have met eight times, including in the 2010 Rose Bowl game, a 26-17 Ohio State win. The first meeting between the teams came in the 1958 Rose Bowl, a 10-7 Ohio State win. All six meetings between those Rose Bowl games were Ohio State wins.

Ohio State will play in Eugene on Sept. 12, 2020, with Oregon playing in Columbus on Sept. 11, 2021. At the same time, Ohio State announced it has completed its 2016 schedule by adding home games against Tulsa on Sept. 10 and Central Michigan on Sept. 24.
