It may seem hard to believe, but tomorrow's game against Pac-12 North foe Washington marks the midpoint of Oregon's 2012 regular season. At stake for the No. 2 Ducks is a chance to head into thier bye week with an unblemished record ahead of the first BCS rankings of the season and extend the longest winning streak in the Oregon/UW rivalry in the process (currently at eight games). For the weekly weather update, here's AMS Vice President Bobby Corser with his Duck Cast:
"The Oregon Ducks return home this week as they welcome in the Washington Huskies. We all know this rivalry is very intense. You can look at a few moments, in a handful of games, that have shaped this series and make it a big game each year. Every week, we get to see a play that helped create what we know Oregon Football to be to this day, Kenny Wheaton's Pick 6. The freshman stepped in front of a pass and took it back to seal the win against the Dawgs. That day in 1994 was beautiful, and this Saturday will be no different. Sunny skies will dominate the landscape. Temperatures will be in the mid 70s as the festivities around the stadium get going. The temperature at kickoff will be in the mid 60s and steadily falling as the game continues. A light North wind will make it feel a few degrees cooler. If you're going to game, dress for warm weather in the afternoon, but prepare for cold temperatures during the game. Make sure to wear yellow and cheer on the boys. Go Ducks!"
