The Oregon Ducks went up to the hostile territory of Seattle, Washington on Saturday and picked up the 35-31 win over the rival Huskies. The win keeps Oregon undefeated in conference play and a near-lock to represent the North in the Pac-12 championship game.
So what did we learn from one of the greatest rivalry games in college football?
We learned that everyone loves Mycah Pittman.
A four-star recruit out of high school, the buzz was loud around the freshman wide receiver upon Pittman's arrival in Eugene this summer.
Pittman suffered an injury during camp and was sidelined to start the season, but since making his debut two weeks ago against Cal, he has been turning heads.
Entering Saturday's rivalry game, Pittman had seven catches for 100 yards on the season, but no touchdowns. That changed against the Huskies.
On 4th and 3 from the Washington 36, Justin Herbert found Pittman on the screen pass. Pittman didn't just get the first down though, he sprinted 36-yards to the endzone for the first touchdown of his career.
Following the game, Herbert had some high praise for his freshman weapon -
Mycah just makes plays and that's all he's ever done since he's shown up. It was good to see
Ducks fans on social media, well, they love Pittman too:
