Welcome to my Oregon Ducks home page.
The Oregon Ducks Football program was established in 1893 and played its first game on March 24, 1894, six months before the season started, defeating Albany College 44–2 under head coach Cal Young.Oregon then finished the season with two additional losses and a tie, but went undefeated the following season, winning all four of its games under head coach Percy Benson. Oregon then finished the season with two additional losses and a tie, but went undefeated the following season, winning all four of its games under head coach Percy Benson. In 1899, the football team left the state for the first time, playing the California Golden Bears in Berkeley, California. Oregon's largest margin of victory came in 1910 when they defeated the University of Puget Sound 115–0. In the 1916 season, Oregon went undefeated with five wins and one tie under head coach Hugo Bezdek, shutting out all their opponents except California. They opened the season against Willamette University, defeating them 97–0. The game against Washington ended in a 0–0 tie. The tiebreaker for the Pacific Coast Conference went to Washington due to Oregon's use of ineligible players but Oregon was given the invitation to the Tournament East-West Football Game at Tournament Park (moved to the Rose Bowl in 1923) due the cost of a train ticket to Los Angeles being significantly less from Eugene than from Seattle. The Oregon football team defeated the heavily favored University of Pennsylvania Quakers 14–0, securing their first and only Rose Bowl victory. Playing at newly constructed Hayward Field, which would be their home field until 1967, the Webfoots returned to the Rose Bowl at the end of the 1919 season, losing to Harvard University 6–7. This would be the team's last bowl appearance until the 1948 Cotton Bowl. The Oregon Ducks are now one of the most successful football teams to today.
