Oregon Football Recruiting During the Bye Week

Jason Fowler Recruiting 2 Comments

Husky Stadium was rocking and hostility toward anyone in green and yellow was in the air. A huge win at then-19th-ranked USC plus nine days of rest and confidence-building and a 12-game losing streak to the Ducks on the line, it appeared it might have been Washington’s game to lose.
