UO staff and faculty with current ID's also receive free admission Friday night, while current Duck students always get in free to regular-season matches with valid student IDs.As part of the area Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, a special raffle will also be held on-site Friday by the Willamette Valley Cancer Institute, and proceeds from the $2 raffle tickets will support local research and treatment programs.
Duck fans can also look for special pink additions to the Oregon uniforms as they take on the recent NCAA runners-up from Berkeley who won the Pac-12 title in 2010.
