Oregon is a school known for its daring uniform design choices, and they are using that reputation to raise awareness and, more importantly, money for The Kay Yow Cancer fund, a charitable organization dedicated to raising money for breast cancer research by wearing pink helmets during its game against Washington State and putting them up for auction after the game.
