Created to rate the best athletic universities in the country based on a point scale, the Capital One Cup gives money back to the first place schools in the men’s and women’s categories at the end of each year.  Points are awarded for each collegiate sport based on the position in the standings at the end of the season.  Oregon Men’s and Women’s programs both currently rank in the top-5 in the Capital One Cup standings.

The football operations building puts another pristine facility in Oregon’s back pocket.

Oregon has largely been known as a track school, and more recently, a football school.  The Ducks rank first in the women’s standings and 4th in the men’s.  We have become a powerhouse in college athletics.  Facilities and enrollment only continue the growth trend in Eugene.  The productivity of our athletic programs increasingly publicizes a school nestled in the most upper-left corner of the country in a town of less than 150,000.

Nicknamed Tracktown, USA, Eugene possesses some of the finest collegiate athletes in the country in more than a dozen sports.  Oregon Women’s Indoor Track and Field squad won another national title and the football team appeared in a 4th straight BCS bowl game.  Add in the basketball team’s imminent bid to the NCAA Tournament and a potential college world series for our baseball team, and I’d say we have it pretty good.

Brandon has been a Duck fan for ten years since he moved from southern California to Salem, Oregon, and quickly realized the Ducks were the missing piece in his life. A Pac-12 fan since birth, much of his family attended UCLA and has since converted all of them to the Quack Attack. Brandon interned for the Statesman Journal covering the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes and hopes to work for the Pac-12 in the near future. He also hopes to see the "Flying-V" formation played out on the football field in the fall of 2013. Brandon would love your feedback on any and all articles. Tweet me: @BrandonGruber
