Marcus Mariota, Oregon Football Team Get Snow Day, Go Sledding On Campus Ahead of Bowl Game (Video)


Neither the snow nor the fleeting chances of a Rose Bowl berth could keep the Ducks from having a little fun.

Much of Oregon and especially the Willamette Valley is digging out from some heavy Friday snow. Oregon’s campus in Eugene saw more than half a foot of snow, and instead of clearing off the field at Autzen Stadium, quarterback¬†Marcus Mariota and his teammates chose to embrace the weather and enjoy the snow.

Armed with several cell phone cameras, a GoPro and much less clothing than should normally be worn in 20-degree weather, the Ducks took to a suitably snowy hill on campus and took turns riding inner tubes down the incline. At one point, they attempt to build a jump out of the white fluffy stuff, apparently unaware that they’re massively built football players that normal highway on-ramps have difficulty supporting.

Check out the video of the Ducks turning into snowbirds below.
