The Ducks ended the year on a high note, capping off with an Alamo Bowl victory against rival Texas for a #9 ranking. With the departure of speedy De-Anthony Thomas to the NFL Draft, the Ducks have themselves covered with a talented 4-stars Tony James and Royce Freeman suiting up. Marcus Mariota, ranked second in the nation behind Jameis Winston in total QBR (90.1), foregoes the pros for another season, as he returns to the Ducks for his junior year! On the other side of the ball, the Ducks welcomed 4-star corner Arrion Springs, after the early leave of Terrance Mitchell and the graduation of safeties Brian Johnson and Avery Patterson. With so much incoming talent, and a matured QB returning, the Ducks are primed for another terrific season. Get your Oregon Ducks tickets and see if they can take it all the way this time!
10/29/13 – The Ducks ranked No. 3 in the initial BCS rankings but jumped up a spot after a 42-14 win over UCLA last weekend.

With multiple tricks up their sleeves, don’t be surprised if the quack continue their attack straight to a Conference title and compete for the school’s first National Championship in football.
