Oregon's mascot absolutely roasts UCLA during Ducks' win
The Duck had a good day.
College GameDay was in town, he got to smash a guitar, he got to be on set with Lee Corso and hand the legendary analyst an Oregon-specific headgear piece one more time. And he got to celebrate a sixth consecutive Oregon win — this one a 45-30 beatdown of ninth-ranked UCLA.
During the game, The Duck also got to eviscerate UCLA on Twitter.
.@UCLAFootball y’all ever seen this many fans before?

As UCLA opened its year with three straight nonconference home games, attendance became a major talking point. The Bruins drew lousy crowds to open the year. They attempted to explain them away by pointing to the weather, to the Rose Bowl’s proximity to campus, and to the lack of star power on the schedule. Even amid the best start to the Chip Kelly tenure, fan interest was a sticking point.
It got so bad at one point that even legendary UCLA alum Troy Aikman called out the problem, tweeting that poor turnout to open the season was an “embarrassment.”
Oregon has had no issue selling out Autzen Stadium, and it was once again a sellout crowd for Saturday’s game. According to the Ducks, it was the fourth-largest crowd for an Oregon game in program history.
