Welcome to Autzen Stadium

Greetings, everyone. I just got settled in at the press box at Autzen Stadium. It’s funny to look around right now because the place is absolutely empty. In a couple of hours, this place is going to be rocking. I’ve only covered one game here before, about six years ago, and I remember walking away just amazed by the atmosphere. Cal will have to be very disciplined and mentally tough to win.

The anticipation of this game in Eugene is palpable. Three hours before the game, the parking lots are filling up and tailgating is in full throttle. This definitely is one of the most anticipated games at Oregon in a while.
