Love ‘em or hate ‘em? The Oregon Ducks have become known for many things throughout the years, but their numerous uniform combinations appear to be near the top of the list. The team has showcased some of the best looking combinations that college football has to offer, but with so many possibilities, you’re bound to find a few misses among the many hits they’ve discovered over the years. 5) Sun Bowl: Oregon vs. Minnesota (2003 Season) Ducks fans have a tendency to like the extreme, but this look might have been a little too much for the Oregon faithful. The classic green helmet was easy to look at, but the all-yellow uniform that lacked any semblance of creative design made a Sun Bowl loss that much more difficult to swallow in 2003. #5.

Darron Thomas, a freshman quarterback at the time, rallied the troops to make it a respectable loss, but down big most of the game, the team couldn’t muster a comeback big enough to make fans feel good about what they’d seen at Autzen Stadium that afternoon.

On Dec. 3, against the Oregon State Beavers, the team went with a new-meets-old combination that was unfortunate at best. Mixing the green throwback jersey of the 90’s with the fresh white pants of today was strange, but the seldom-used helmet, which can only be described as something between yellow and orange, put the uniform over the top. Many fans have good feelings for this look because of the victory that took place that night, but if you detach yourself from the positive emotions of the game, you’ll realize that it was a display that simply made no sense. 2009 Civil War (Photo Credit: Bruce Ely The Oregonian) 2) Las Vegas Bowl: Oregon vs. BYU (2006 Season) The Ducks made it to the Las Vegas Bowl in the 2006 season, but unfortunately for the team and their fans, the final score was just as ugly as the uniforms they sported on national television. The gleam of the yellow helmet should have balanced out the jersey’s bright yellow numbers, but in the 38-8 loss against BYU, it was more of a distraction than a complement to the otherwise neutral look they sported on the field that day.

The Ducks visited Tempe, Ariz. in 2008, and the yellow pants came out in bizarre fashion. With no yellow to be found anywhere else on the team’s uniform, the yellow pants almost looked as if the team manager packed the wrong attire. Luckily for the Ducks, the team dodged the laughs by avoiding a national television audience and dominating the game from start to finish. Jeremiah Masoli in a truly awful uniform.
