Vin Lananna is leaving the University of Oregon to become head track coach at the University of Virginia. Lananna was hired as head track coach following the 2005 school year, and was head coach until 2012 when he gave up coaching for an administrative role. Lananna says he misses coaching and wanted a chance to work with athletes again.

24/7 Sports talks with Mario Cristobal about the coming game with Montana. The Grizzlies are ranked 19th in the most recent FCS poll and are 2-0 so far on the year, most recently defeating Northern Alabama 61-17.

Oregon is now the slight favorite to win the Pac 12 North in the ESPN FPI rankings following the Uw loss and a strong victory over Nevada. Oregon’s toughest game remaining is against USC per the current rankings, where Oregon has a 61% chance of winning.
