Oregon football reflects on the missed opportunity that was this weekends Washington State game. Oregon proved capable of playing with the Cougars in the second half, but was doomed by not showing up at all for the first half of the game while the Cougars were fired up and ready.

Austin Meek notes that this is the fourth straight loss against apparent Pac 12 powerhouse Washington State. The previous three years were weird years for Duck football, but this year was simply getting beat bad without any excuse.

Volleyball lost to second ranked Stanford this weekend after taking the opening set with a score of 25-16. The Ducks then lost the next three sets straight. UO coach Matt Ulmer says that learning how to sustain the level of play from the first set is the difference between making the final four and making the sweet sixteen.

Oregon soccer ended a stretch of five straight games against 2017 NCAA tournament teams, including three on the road, with a 5-0 loss at second ranked USC. The final three games of Oregon’s season will be at home.
