[10/3 Update: Our uniform prediction was wrong, and ESPN removed the College GameDay video, so we’ve replaced it with a nifty photograph. Oregon actually wore all-green uniforms.]

So ESPN College GameDay wants to get its ass handed to it when Stanford beats Oregon and its “pundits” are proven wrong. But more importantly, we here at The Daily Axe believe we know which uniforms Oregon will be wearing this afternoon. That’s right, folks: despite the Ducks’ seemingly infinite options, we believe that we have narrowed it down to one combination. After watching this video, in which Oregon head coach Chip Kelly discusses his team’s uniform choices with Sports Illustrated, we predict that Oregon will march out in their throwback yellow and green uniforms tonight. Put it on the record, unless, of course, we end up being wrong.
