Oregon football is TOMORROW! We have finally made it to kickoff 2017. Saturday the Ducks will commence their season vs Southern Utah at Autzen Stadium.

If you’ve been following us on Instagram @eugene_levys_eyebrows, then you’ve been counting down the Duck players of past and present this summer.

We started at No. 99 with Canton Kaumatule and it’s almost hard to believe we’re one day away from opening day.

Let’s take a look at an interesting fact about Oregon’s No. 1 Josh Huff:

  • After never compiling more than 517 scrimmage yards in a season, Josh Huff erupted during his senior campaign in Eugene. The Houston product secured 62 grabs for 1,140 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns during the 2013 season. That year, he finished inside the Pac-12’s Top 10 in five categories; receptions (9) receiving yards (3), yards from scrimmage (8), touchdowns from scrimmage (9), and touchdowns (10). His magical ‘13 season led him to the next level where he was drafted in the third round (86th overall) by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2014 NFL Draft. Entering his fourth season in the NFL, Huff has collected 51 receptions, 523 receiving yards and four scores while playing for the Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 5-foot-11 receiver is happy lining up alongside NFL superstars Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson in Florida

This concludes our 12-part series. The Ducks open the 2017 season on Saturday from Autzen. Kickoff is set for 5:15 p.m. PT from Eugene. Keep calm, the Ducks are set for a new beginning.
