The football gods have been kind to Oregon football in recent years. Since 2010, the Ducks have been one of the most successful teams in college football, making a couple of National Championship Games, winning multiple BCS/NY6 bowl games, and perhaps most importantly, delivering some of the most memorable moments in program history.
There are the obvious plays and games that will forever be entrenched in the memories of the Oregon faithful, such as the Ducks’ historic blowout of Florida State in the 2015 Rose Bowl, LaMichael James’ ridiculous touchdown scamper against Tennessee in 2010, Marcus Mariota’s Houdini act against Michigan State in 2014, and De’Anthony Thomas’ electric touchdown run in the 2012 Rose Bowl. But there are so many others that deserve a mention, such as Vernon Adams Jr.’s otherworldly effort against Arizona State in a 2015 instant classic, Justin Herbert’s last-second touchdown strike to upset No. 12 Utah in 2016, or even Oregon’s shocking upset of the CFP-contending Utes in 2019.
The Ducks have been blessed with a decade of numerous exciting players, downright wild games, and a handful of can’t-miss performances. As we take some time to reminisce on the most successful decade in Oregon football history, what is your favorite memory or moment from the 2010s?
