Welcome to the most relieved website on Earth. Just when it appeared the Ducks’ domination of the Huskies might come to an end, Washington turned to its hurry-up offense and scored in just under a Millenia.
This week, Oregon takes a much-deserved breather from Pac-12 play. FishDuck.com decided to take a look around the conference to see what we should watch elsewhere in the league.
Washington State at Arizona: 1 p.m., Pac-12 Network a.k.a. Blow me, DirecTV users network: Football fans who are not using DirecTV will get a chance to watch the Cougs play Arizona at Bear With Us While We Again Fail to Go to the Rose Bowl Stadium in beautiful Tucson.
Arizona is the only team out of the original Pac-10 never to go to a Rose Bowl. But there is one guy who is hanging on to hope.
Utah at USC: 4:30 p.m., Fox: This would be an easy spot to take a shot at Steve Sarkisian. But we aren’t going to go there. FishDuck.com has dealt with addiction and we know it should not be fodder for humor. We wish coach Sarkisian help with his problem and a swift recovery and return to his chosen profession.
We are sensitive because this is what FishDuck.com staff meetings used to look like.
Colorado at Oregon State, 7:30 p.m. Pac-12 Network: Yahoo Sports is streaming Sunday’s hound of a game in London between Buffalo and Jacksonville so no one has to watch it on TV. I wonder if anyone considered that for Buffs at Beavs.
Washington at Stanford, 7:30 p.m ESPN: “The Huskies take their high-powered offense down to The Farm for a must-see clash between Pac-12 heavyweights.” That’s what I would say if I worked for ESPN.
Actually, if any game could recreate this long-lamented Civil War …
Enjoy the games.
Go Ducks! Batter Bye.
