Last year I was pulling for the Beavers, who had a Rose Bowl on the line. (They lost it.) This year, it's the Ducks with a national championship game at risk. I generally pull for the underdogs, but in the grand scheme of things, a Ducks national championship would be a triumph of the little guy. The 5-6 Beavs are mainly playing for spite (and a Toilet Bowl)--as good a reason as any--but this year, I'm a Duck man.
