Duck Domination

I took a road trip this weekend down to Eugene, Oregon for a chance to go shoot the number one team in the land. Autzen Stadium is a great place to watch (or photograph) a game and with their Ducks being at the top of the heap, the fans were as loud and crazy as ever. With every Ducks game, there is always the question, “what uniform are they going to wear this game?” Well, they came out in all black and looked intimidating as they dismantled the Locker-less Huskies 53-16

Un-Luck-y Dawgs

Andrew Luck, that is. Luck and the Stanford Cardinal came in to Husky Stadium Saturday and dominated the Huskies from from the very start, winning 41-0. It was another wet one for the first half and then the skies cleared for the rest of the game, but the Huskies were already sunk. At least they get to go on the road to Eugene next week to take on the #1 team in the country next week! Here are a few shots from the game.
