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.
