Fans will get a chance to see the 2016 Oregon Ducks team Saturday, April 30 at 11 am. The game will include the Webfoots against Mighty Oregon, including new uniforms for the spring game.
Oregon will don throwback uniforms, with the school’s original colors. The Webfoots are set to wear a navy uniform with copper and gold accents. Mighty Oregon will boast a white based uniform, both with helmets that feature decals of the original Pacific Coast Conference. Quarterbacks and non-contact players will be in yellow. The uniforms are a piece of memorabilia of Oregon’s first Rose Bowl team from 1916.
The game will feature a tribute to the armed forces and as a way of helping out the local food bank. Admission to the scrimmage will be three canned food products that will be donated to Food for Lane County. Spectators will need to come through the north, east and south gates.
