It’s been a decade of dominance for the Ducks against the rival Washington Huskies, and 20 years since the famed “Pick” by Kenny Wheaton. Since that play in 1994, the Ducks have won 15 of the last 19 matchups.
Interestingly, the heavy hand of the Ducks has been so overwhelming that the validity of the word “rival” has been a major topic of discussion among writers and analysts in the week leading up to the game. On Monday, Jon Canzano released a piece in the Oregonian suggesting that you would consider Oregon vs Washington a rivalry “Only if you’ve been in a coma,” while Addicted To Quack wishes you a happy “I hate Washington Week.”
Since there are clearly differing opinions on the matter, let me tell you where I stand: LET’S. GO. DUCKS!
