Autzen Stadium- Utah/Oregon football game

Last week we made a quick trip up I-5 to the old hippie town of Eugene to see the Utes play the 6th ranked team in the country Oregon Ducks at one of the hallowed stadiums on the west coast- Autzen. Indeed, I used to own (back in high school) a Grateful Dead bootleg concert tape from their Autzen concert in the mid-80’s. We strolled around the University of Oregon admiring the stately campus, which looked a little like an ivy league school. The next day was game time and although Utah hung in there close in the first half, the 2nd half was all Oregon and they rolled us 44-21. Not surprisingly. Still a good time being there and the Ducks fans, despite their stupid Disney logo, were all very kind to us.
