Ducks vs Lubbock Streak...Thrilla Cyclocross Returns

Oregon is on the road at Texas Tech Saturday where a 16 game non conference home winning streak is on the line for the Red Raiders. The game is set to be played in front of a record sellout with temperatures in the 90s at kick-off. With that heat it’s probably a good idea the Ducks will wear white uniforms with silver helmets.

10th ranked Washington plays Boise State at 12:30

Washington State plays Colorado State at 4

NBA: 

A story in Forbes reveals the Trail Blazers didn’t have many decent offers for Damian Lillard even before the star guard let it be known he would only play for the Miami Heat. An unnamed executive in the article cited Lillard’s  large guaranteed contract, game-limiting injuries the last two seasons, and that he’s in the back nine of his career as the reason there is a lack of interest for teams to part ways with assets the Blazers would agree on. A trade for Lillard probably won’t happen until the season is underway, when Portland could gain more value in a deal with a team looking to make a run.
