The last seven meetings have either been close finishes or scoring trackmeets. There have also been a lot of miscues on the Oregon side. Almost too many for it to be a coincidence. In fact, Oregon blog Addicted To Quack is convinced there's a darker power at work here.
We can tell ourselves that this streak will be broken on Saturday but, lets be honest, we have no control over that. No, we must acknowledge the Juju and his power to control the fate of the football universe. Keth Allen's drop? FLUKE. Cameron Colvin's fumble? FLUKE. These excuses are no more. What the Juju wants is our attention and our respect. We respect you, Juju, and stand in awe of the power that you can unleash.
Oregon fans decided that Juju had been defeated by their success last season. But isn't that exactly what Juju would want them to think?
And there's no better revenge than to strike back with the hated Cal Bears.
Re-live one of Juju's greatest moments below and get ready to see if he strikes again tonight.
