The 2012 Oregon Ducks football team represented the University of Oregon in the 2012 college football season. The team played their home games at Autzen Stadium for the 46th straight year, and was coached by Chip Kelly in his fourth and final year at Oregon.

For the fifth straight season, Oregon swept all of their regional rivals in the Pac-12: Oregon State, Washington, and Washington State.

Previous season[edit]

The Ducks won their third straight conference title after defeating UCLA in the inaugural Pac-12 Football Championship Game. They represented the Pac-12 in the Rose Bowl, where they defeated Wisconsin 45–38 to win their first Rose Bowl game since 1917. It was their second Rose Bowl appearance in three years and their sixth overall. It was Oregon's third consecutive year in a BCS bowl game (prior to which having played in the 2010 Rose Bowl and the 2011 BCS National Championship Game), the longest active streak in college football. The Ducks finished the season 12–1 (8–1 Pac-12).
