Stage is set for a classic Oregon-Oregon State showdown Dec. 3
Oftentimes, the most exciting college football Saturdays are the ones you least expect. On a day without a single game between two ranked teams, the sport provided us an all-day marathon of dramatic finishes, culminating with No. 11 Oregon's 44-41 double-overtime win at Arizona.
