Last Minute Gameday Stories

GO DUCKS!• Ted Miller says the Duck defense is ready to be underestimated.There is some resignation to Nick Aliotti -- "I'm trying to answer your question here," he repeatedly said to reporters -- because he'd like for his defense to get more credit, but he also knows that Oregon's national perception is gaudy uniforms and gaudy offensive statistics.
