Valero Alamo Bowl: #10 Oregon vs. Texas

Longtime coaches for Ducks, Longhorns to make final stand at the Alamo before retiring

wewanttexasshirt

Oregon (10-2) vs Texas (8-4) looked like a potential BCS matchup before the season started. Instead, the two teams meet in San Antonio for one final game before an offseason of significant change. After spending most of the season ranked in the top 2, the Ducks limp into the game after losing two of their final four games. Texas was mauled by Baylor in the de facto Big XII championship game after starting ...   More

Game Preview: Oregon State vs #12 Oregon

Ducks play Beavers in the Civil War for dignity, Platypus

civilwarbiebers

The oldest rivalry on the west coats finds #12 Oregon (9-2) and Oregon State (6-5) in a familiar position in the 117th iteration of the Civil War: Coming off of bad losses. The Ducks have won five straight in the series and hold a 14-game lead in it overall, but they have lost their final game before the Civil War in each of the past three seasons. The difference is that this time, it wasn't the Ducks' ...   More

The fifth-ranked Ducks (9-1) face the inconsistent Arizona Wildcats (6-4) in the penultimate game of the regular season. Thanks to a Stanford loss last week, the Ducks once again control their own destiny in the Pac-12. Autzen Stadium will host the third annual Pac-12 Championship Game if the team wins tomorrow's game in Arizona Stadium and the Civil War. But funny things always seem to happen when ...   More

Game Preview: Utah vs #6 Oregon

For some reason, Ducks favored by 26 points against the team that beat Stanford

ducksutesimage

News
The Oregon Ducks (8-1, 5-1 Pac-12) host the Utah Utes (4-5, 1-5 Pac-12) in the first ever meeting between these two schools as conference foes. Before the season, we joked about Utah not taking advantage of its supreme luck in not playing Oregon or Stanford in its first two seasons in the extended Pac-12. Welp, they're 1-0 against the Big Boys from the northern division thus far. Oregon, on the other ...   More

News
The preseason Pac-12 "Game of the Year" is finally upon us. For the second consecutive season, it is a revenge game between Oregon and the one conference team that beat Oregon the previous season—Stanford, in this case. Like USC the year before. Stanford started the season ranked in the top 5. Like USC the year before, Stanford lost to an unranked team before the Pac-12’s premier matchup. Like ...   More

News
After months of obsessing over recruiting rankings, crucial missed plays and the saga of Johnny Football, the 2013-14 college football season is finally upon us. The season officially kicks off with the battle of the Carolinas set to the tune of that old South Carolinian ditty, “Sandstorm,” on ESPN at 3pm this afternoon. Both Oregon schools, however, wait until Saturday to kick off their campaigns. ...   More

News
It’s hard to ignore Phil Knight’s influence on the University of Oregon campus—from the library named after his family, to the law school named for his dad, to the basketball arena named after Knight’s son. Those on the Eugene campus are always aware of what his cash has bought. But his latest endeavor—a $68 million,145,000-square-foot football training facility—caught the eye of the ...   More

Almost Live: Oregon vs Oregon State

Ducks aim to lick, pound, [insert sexual verb] Beavers in the Civil War

beaverjuice

News
The attitude throughout the Oregon community has been muted over the past week. The braggadocio that once defined the fanbase has given way stunned, mildly appalled melancholy. But as fun as it was wallowing in self-pity after the Cardinal’s upset last Saturday, the time has come to move on. We’ve a war to prepare for.  There are plenty easterners, Southrons, and history books that will try ...   More

Almost Live: Stanford vs Oregon

Perennial also-ran takes on perennial champion for the Pac-12 North title

stanfordtree

News
Stanford has a wonderful football program. It holds its student-athletes to the same rigorous academic standards as its less athletic students. The Cardinal plays fundamentally sound, physical football. It consistently beats teams not named Oregon. Even in a season when other Pac-12 teams engage in a boorish competition to see which team can embarrass itself the most, Stanford is rock solid—mind-boggling ...   More

Struggling Golden Bears attempt to beat the spread against undefeated Oregon

You are looking live a California Memorial Stadium as the 9-0 Oregon Ducks bring their high-powered offense to face the struggling Golden Bears of California. If that sounds familiar, there’s a reason: This is the exact same script as 2010. Those Ducks limped out of the stadium that day with a 15-13 win, the second-lowest point total of the Chip Kelly era. Oregon would go on to play for the national ...   More
