Rose Bowl Week, Day 1 Wrap
Sunday, December 27, 7:00 a.m. PST
Oregon's first full day in Southern California is in the books.
The Ducks got back to their normal practice routine, complete with music being pumped through portable loudspeakers to make the Pac-10 champs feel at home, before going off script with a visit to Disneyland for an official welcoming ceremony and press conference.
This morning, they are getting ready to do it all over again - minus the Disney detour - as we inch one day closer to one of the most anticipated Oregon football games ever.
