If you missed any of the late night Pac-12 action Saturday night, you may have missed yet another Oregon loss. This time, the Ducks defense was abused by Washington State’s offense in a 51-33 victory for the Cougars. It’s the second straight victory for Washington State over the Ducks, the first time Washington State has won consecutive games against Oregon since 2002 and 2003. That was cause for a celebration in Pullman, and on Twitter.
Whoever is behind the Washington State Twitter account pulled out a good old fashioned Duck Hunt reference to note back-to-back wins against Oregon…
This is not the first time Washington State pulled a retro video game reference on us in celebration of a win over Oregon. Last year, the Cougars broke out an Oregon Trail joke following a victory. The joke was extra funny because the Ducks wore a specially-designed Oregon Trial (the actual expedition, not the classic computer game) uniform for the game.
One can only imagine what will be in store in the event Washington State goes three years in a row with a victory in this series. What classic video game reference could they drop next?
