Here are the latest happenings, events, updates, and match results of your favourite sporting activities in the beautiful state of Oregon.

Without further ado, let’s jump right in.

Oregon to replace Washington in Pac-12 Football Championship Game

In recent reports from the Pac-12 league, a decision was reached to replace the Washington team with the Ducks as the North Division team that will face the South Division champion USC in a match held on Dec. 18.

The decision was made after a close discussion with the Washington team by the Pac-12 league board. Washington needs to be replaced in the title game since they were not able to compete against Oregon. They lacked enough scholarship student players to take part in the championship game. Washington was not able to satisfy the condition of having at least 53 players for the game as some tested positive for COVID-19.

If Oregon comes out victorious over the Huskies, the team would advance straight to the title championship.

Jonathan Flowe recommits to the Ducks

Despite receiving lucrative offers from Ohio and Oklahoma, Jonathan Flowe, a star linebacker for the Oregon Ducks, made a prodigious verbal pledge to the team on Tuesday, Dec. 15.

Jonathan is the brother of the Ducks’ freshman linebacker Justin Flowe. The younger brother was currently ranked the 135th overall prospect in the ESPN Top 300 and ranks 12th in the list of high-rated recruits in the state of Oregon.

The talented linebacker joins the impressive team of 2021 specially managed by head coach Mario Cristobal. After the reassuring pledge on Tuesday, Jonathan will now play alongside the likes of quarterback Ty Thompson and running back Seven McGee.

Oregon plans to carry the impetus gained from this news into the signing period.

Basketball: San Francisco added to abbreviated non-conference slate

San Francisco has been added to the non-conference slate for Oregon Basketball. The Ducks, who are presently 4-1 this season, have shown some exciting teamwork among both old and new players on the court.

The Dons have faced several immense encounters this season, with the slate game against the Ducks being a new challenge. One of their notable moments was the massive victory over ranked opponent Virginia in November. It may have been the largest win in their history.

Oregon Basketball has been trying to get a match to play during the long season and has found a way now with their slated game against the Dons. The Ducks vs. the Dons is scheduled to hold on Dec. 17 (5pm Pacific Time).

Oregon men’s basketball to host Portland

As if things could not get any messier for the Oregon Basketball team, they have a second home game against Portland this week. The Ducks will host Portland at their home arena in the Matthew Knight Arena on Dec. 19.

This will be the 60th meeting between the two sides, with each side having a 49-10 win tally apiece.

Female Basketball Ducks trash the Beavers

The Oregon women’s basketball team maintains their tremendous start to the 2020/2021 season when they trash the Beavers 79-59 in their Sunday game at the Gill Coliseum.

The victory was Oregon’s 24th consecutive win that dates back to last season, thereby lengthening the league’s and nation’s longest winning streak record. 

Players who stood out in the match were Paopao and Mikesell—obtaining 22 and 21 points respectively for the Ducks. Others such as Chavez and Nyara Sabally were also vital in the game as they both helped to secure eight points each.

After this crucial win, the Ducks will have to up their tactics if they want to extend the winning streak to their next game against Washington in Seattle.
