According to a media release issued by the Oregon Athletic Department, Nebraska's last win over Oregon came five years ago Saturday (Dec. 15, 2007) in Omaha, Neb., 88-79.

The Ducks defeated Idaho State, 87-35, in their last contest. The 52-point victory over Idaho State was Oregon's largest since beating Winston-Salem State by 51 points in 2009. In addition, the 35 points allowed was the fewest since giving up just 23 points to Savannah State in a 2005 contest.
