College football fans around the nation circled this game when the 2015 schedule came out. Two powerhouses in the Conference of Champions facing off in a late-season match up, hopefully rife with College Football Playoff implications. We didn’t quite get such a storybook scenario, but given the struggles of these two programs at the outset of the 2015 campaign I think that we can all be tickled over a game that somehow still has something to say about the conference championship.
Kickoff: 4:30pm Media: Fox Weather: ~60 Game Color: Yellow Vegas Says: Ducks -10 Mathematically speaking, the Ducks are alive in the race to the Pac-12 championship game. There are several things that need to happen and the first is within their control: beat Stanford. If they can do that, thousands of Duck fans will suddenly … [Read more…]
With a few extra days of rest the Ducks welcome the California Golden Bears to Autzen Stadium for a game that may be a whole lot more entertaining than we perhaps thought at the start of the season. Similar to the Ducks and the Huskies, this is a series that has historically swung in the direction of the Golden Bears, but has seen a string of recent success for the guys in the green and yellow to the tune of 6 straight.

In the first half of the 2014-15 season, the Ducks started 3-0 before traveling to Pullman, Washington, to face the Washington State Cougars. They received quite the scare before eventually winning 38-31 and running out of Pullman like they stole something, and in fact, thanks to some questionable officiating some would say that a theft indeed occurred.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we want to raise money to help Oregonians fighting for their lives. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and it is the second leading cause of death among women — about 40,000 women in the United States lose the battle to breast cancer each year. And breast cancer isn’t just a women’s disease; about 2,360 men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
The entirety of Duck nation is still seething at the missed opportunities in the Michigan State game. Personally I’ve been having nightmares of balls sailing over the head of Bralon Addison during that final drive. I think it’s fair to say — without sarcastically invoking Jameis Winston’s famous assessment of last year’s Rose Bowl — that the game in East Lansing could have gone either way. The defense played well enough to win, but the offense had those few inopportune hiccups that killed drives and ultimately gave the Spartans a 3-point victory.
