Jubilation In Eugene!

Ducks Defeat the Boomer Sooners 34 – 33.

Can you hear the cheers? Did you watch the game?

What an awesome autumn afternoon at Autzen! With only three minutes to go, Oklahoma was ahead 33 to 20. Seemed pretty hopeless to me. I almost changed the channel. But the Ducks pulled their balls out of the fire. A lucky (and slightly suspect) call gave them the ball for one touchdown, and a "hail mary" in the last minute gave them the second touchdown. They topped it off by blocking Oklahoma’s final point kick effort in the last two seconds.

This was the first win in seven times they’ve played this team. Certainly, as the coach said, the seventh time was the charm.

What a great game! What a great team!! What a great day to be an Oregonian!!!
