Oregon rolled into Lubbock, Texas and used a 20-point fourth quarter to come back and beat Texas Tech by eight on Saturday. It was a hard-fought college football game that came down to the wire, but ultimately went in favor of the visitors and left the home team at 0-2.
Oregon linebacker Jeffrey Bassa sealed the win for his team with a pick-six in the fourth quarter.
Texas Tech fans were completely devastated.
One fan threw a drink from the crowd at Bassa’s head after he crossed the goal line.
That was not the only projectile that was thrown at the visitors throughout the night and Red Raiders fans were vicious. As a result, Oregon players were quick to flip the script when the clock hit zero.
Oregon fired back at Texas Tech.
They talked a lot of talk as they made their way off of the field. And deservedly so.
A few of the players gave the middle finger to the home crowd as others jawed in their direction. Running back Bucky Irving was especially vocal.
However, things reached a new level when one Ducks athlete threw something back into the stands.
That caused the Texas Texas supporters to unload the clip. Security on the field didn’t know what to do.
College football is not college football without rowdy fans. The passion and emotion behind the sport is what makes the product so great.
For Oregon to clap back at the Texas Tech fanbase after a long night of insults and chirps is all in good fun. The same can be said for Red Raiders fans getting on the Ducks.
However, to have players and fans throwing projectiles at one another is not a good look. For either side.
