The Oregon Ducks are Flying High

Americans take their college football very seriously, a sporting event that has been historically important to many states in the USA. Every year fans and parents fill up the college field bleachers to watch their youth play football which is also the base of their NFL draft picks. Majority of the layers are produced at college level and then get drafted in the NFL. Betting is not only done on teams in the NFL but also on the collegiate level teams as high stakes are attached to the year around matches. Many sites like online-slots/ are seeing increased betting action early on in this season.

The Oregon Ducks

The Oregon Ducks Football is the team of University of Oregon for the collegiate level tournament of American Football. The team is the state team for the state of Oregon. The team competes at the NCAA Division I level in the FBS. It is also a member of the Pac-12 Conference (Pac-12). They are generally termed as the Ducks. The football team started its journey in 1984. They play their home games at the Autzen Stadium which can check in up to 50,000 fans in one night. Their main rivals are the Oregon State Beavers; the contest every season gives the outlook of a war rather than just a football game not only for the players but the fans alike.

A Running Tradition

The Ducks historically produce talented and legendary running backs and the legacy seems to continue in the resent era as well. C.J. Verdell who is the starting running back for the class of 2017 ran for 286 yards and five touch downs with an additional kickoff return score in a 51-42 loss to Augustus Hawkins. In the current season Verdell has 668 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on 58 carries (11.5 yards per carry) with an additional 151 yards on three kick returns.

Legendary Ducks

The 2014 Ducks are considered to be one of the legendary teams put up at the varsity level. That year they won division and conference title along with finishing in the national finals. Their 1-of-5 success rate was widely analyzed in the aftermath of their current losses. The discipline is to be brought under control is the common tag line after such losses. Helfrich made it apparent that the penalty problem has to be dissected and brought under control if the ducks have to be at their best against Colorado on Saturday at their home stadium.
