Photo countdown: Three days to the Alamo Bowl

There are only three days until the 2013 Alamo Bowl where the Oregon Ducks will face the Texas Longhorns. Every day we’ll post a meaningful photo from the year to recap the eventful season and get fans prepped for Oregon’s matchup in the Lone Star State. Be sure to check out the rest of the Emerald’s football coverage leading up to the game.

The Oregon student section at Autzen stadium is a coveted spot for many Duck students, with the online lottery ticket system regularly overwhelmed during Sunday distribution times. While a seat near the front row is almost a surefire way for 15 minutes of fame on television (particularly if it’s an ESPN broadcast game), the entire section is energetic and particularly loud, at least while the score is close during some of Oregon’s blowout victories.

The Oregon student section is alive and rowdy as always, replete with body paint and creative chants. The No. 3 Oregon Ducks play the No. 12 UCLA Bruins at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore. on Oct. 26, 2013. (Michael Arellano/Emerald)
