Quack Fix: Golf Team Advances to NCAA Final

Your daily dose of all things Oregon.

Michael Madrid-USA TODAY Sports

  • The Oregon men's golf team has advanced to play the Texas Longhorns in the NCAA championship match.  The Ducks have been underdogs all season, and that will continue against the top-seeded Longhorns. Texas will be looking for its second title in five years, but Duck golfer Aaron Wise is looking to help the Ducks claim their first team title. The sophomore sensation already won the individual title and will turn pro after the tournament. The Ducks knocked off defending national champion LSU and second-ranked Illinois Tuesday night.
  • The women's track & field team fell out of the top five in the national rankings after a rocky weekend at the NCAA West Prelims. Sprinters had been the bright spot all year, but the departure of Jasmine Todd coupled with Hannah Cunliffe failing to qualify in the 200 were both disappointing. Todd did not compete at the regional before announcing she was leaving the team. Cunliffe was projected to take second at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. The women are now ranked sixth going into next week's championships, while the men held steady at No. 3.
  • ESPN's blog has identified Oregon football's toughest stretch as three weeks in October (at Washington State, Washington, at Cal). These games will be must-wins heading into back-to-back matchups with Pac-12 rivals USC and Stanford. The rationale is that the Ducks have to take care of business in the earlier three games to put themselves in position for a Pac-12 North title.
