Basement Framing Wide Span Ductwork

I have a wide span for the ceiling ductwork in my basement . The clear span from edge to edge is 60". The supply and return are butted tight against each other and I do not have any room between them for additional support. I am planning to drywall it and am concerned about it sagging while maintaining maximum height, currently 84". I don't believe flat 2x4s could carry it. What could I use/how would I be able to span the 5'? Any suggestions re appreciated and thank you in advance!
