After starting off a little shaky — giving up the first score to the Cowboys midway through the first quarter — the Oregon defense recovered and managed to make some key stops. Erick Dargan’s two interceptions […]
It’s a good thing that size isn’t everything when it comes to volleyball. When No. 18 Oregon took the floor against No. 23 Michigan State, it was evident that the Spartans were superior in size as their front line towered over the likes of Oregon’s Liz Brenner, Martenne Bettendorf and Kacey Nady. “It’s about playing […]

Aidan Schneider wasn’t the biggest football fan growing up and didn’t start his football career until he was a junior at Grant High School in Portland, Oregon.

The Pac-12 may have gone 9-1 against non-conference opponents in week two, but it would be a lie to label this a productive week.

Mark Helfrich compared his halftime speech to the Gettysburg Address as an uncertain Oregon team headed into the break trailing 24-18. While Helfrich was being a little overdramatic, the results produced afterwards were profound. “Gettysburg Addressish,” Helfrich jokingly said. “We have so many young guys on our team that haven’t had a competitive quote unquote adversity. Just to […]
In the blink of an eye, Devon Allen rose to stardom. On a 70-yard touchdown connection with Marcus Mariota early in the second quarter, Allen not only electrified the sold out Autzen crowd by breaking through a group of Michigan State defenders with his olympic speed, but he more importantly, solidified his role on this […]
Oregon left the mainland and headed 2,500 miles west to Honolulu, Hawaii not knowing what to expect when it played in the Hawaiian Airlines Wahine Volleyball Classic.
