Found October 07, 2013 on College Spun:
Washington just lost a heartbreaker, 31-28, to the No. 5 team in the country, the Stanford Cardinal. But the Huskies will have no time to lick their wounds – the No. 2 ranked Oregon Ducks are coming to town this weekend.  The school has been hyping this one up for a few weeks now, and has released a two-part video series announcing a stadium “blackout” for the affair. Here are both parts, set to some of Kanye West’s finest work: While an upset of the Cardinal would have been nice, this is the one that could change the BCS picture nationally. We’ll see if the atmosphere can play in a role in slowing down the Ducks’ ridiculous offense.

Oregon’s players definitely have the right to be confident heading into any matchup, but they’d be wise to take a few of their opponents more seriously than others.
