Oregon football practice recap: Arizona loss doesn’t prevent Oregon coaches from appreciating recent success
Oregon players, coaches and fans can all agree: Saturday’s loss to Arizona hurt.

For the first time in his career as Oregon’s head coach, Mark Helfrich lost a game. Defeats are rare experiences for basically all of the Ducks players and staff — Oregon has lost five times in the last four seasons — so being prepared and motivated to play a 4-5 Utah team (1-5 in the […]
