It’s not every day that a benefactor makes a $500 million gift to a public university in Oregon. Since the October 2016 announcement that Phil and Penny Knight have promised to give $50 million each year for the next decade (matched by other private donations and fundraising), there has been a buzz of anticipation around this new addition to the University of Oregon. Groundbreaking on this billion-dollar new scientific and research campus is expected in February 2018.

Oregon fans were deflated following the 42 to 20 loss to Ohio State in the National Championship Monday night.

Trailing 35 to 20 halfway through the fourth quarter, the Ducks began playing desperate football. The defense was unable to stop Ohio's running game, and the offense couldn't find their rhythm. When a comeback was obviously out of reach, people began closing their bar tabs and the sour taste of defeat was pasted on everyone's faces. Oregon student Enrique Munoz describes the loss.
