UW Game Still Big Rivalry to Duck Fans?

EUGENE, Ore. — The first big rivalry of the Ducks’ season is this weekend, when the University of Washington huskies come to town. But are fans still fixated on the UW rivalry?

According to fans, the UW rivalry has dropped down on the list of rival match-ups at Autzen Stadium. Many fans saying the Huskies just aren’t as hated of an opponent as they used to be, but don’t get me wrong, Ducks fans still do not like UW.

Of course, the historical and geographical context the Husky game holds still makes it an important game on the schedule. But a lot of fans feel the excitement isn’t quite the same.

A lot of fans put Saturday’s game third on the most-watched Duck game list, behind USC and OSU.

Regardless, it will definitely be one of the better match-ups of the season Saturday night when the second-place Ducks take on the 23rd-ranked Huskies. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
