Autzen Stadium: Eugene, OR

In little more than a decade, the Ducks have gone from laughingstock to national contender—and the NCAA’s number one fashion show. Nobody does uniforms like the chic Nike-clad Ducks, who normally sport a dozen different looks in any given season. Many a visiting coach, player, and broadcaster have claimed that Autzen is the loudest stadium in college football. The highest noise level recorded inside the stadium was an eardrum-shattering 127 decibels during a 2007 victory over USC—a level that falls right between a jackhammer and a jet plane.

Team Tradition: The Oregon Duck mascot doing push-ups for every point the team scores.

Typical Chant: “Go! Ducks!”

Biggest Rival: Oregon State (their annual game is called the “Civil War”).

Postgame Hangout: Rennie’s Landing.

Stadium Capacity: Approximately 54,000; goducks.com.
