Flying standby aside, I'm going to Eugene this weekend to watch the Fresno and Oregon game. I genuinely expect Fresno to win as they've seemed to continue their momentum from their MPC Bowl win over Virginia, where as the Ducks looked pretty flat against Houston and still a little unsure of their new offense against Montana. On the other hand, Fresno hasn't done real well against Oregon in the last decade or so. In 2002 Oregon won 28 to 24, but these are very different teams. Fresno returned 80 starters and Oregon is starting a completely new, spread offense...
A nice benefit of visiting Eugene though is that I don't care to much who wins either way, so it ought to be a pretty good time regardless of the outcome. Fresno by 7!
- $14 for a standing room only ticket
- $19 for a bunk bed in a sweet Hostel
- $2.40 for 2 day bus passes on Saturday and Sunday
I really think it'll be guaranteed fun. Not to mention, if the game is flat, theres always Oregon Cheerleaders and hippies to look forward to.
