It's 2013, and if you're a fan of college football and the Oregon Ducks, things couldn't be much better.

The team currently sits at 8-0, the program is coming off four straight BCS appearances, including wins in the latter two, and fans have had the pleasure of watching players like LaMichael James, De'Anthony Thomas and Marcus Mariota turn the offense into one of the most feared units in the game.

But if you followed the Ducks before the turn of the century, you'll know that things weren't always this way. The team was mired in a string of awful seasons throughout the '70s and '80s, and Eugene was more likely to be some long-lost uncle for recruits than a destination for football.

Many players, games, coaches, fans and boosters have played a prominent role in Oregon's rise to the top, and it's impossible to narrow down this list to just a few key moments.

However, there are certain parts of Oregon lore that are firmly implanted in fans' collective memories, never to be forgotten and never to be surpassed by what is to come.

Let's take a look at some of the greatest college football moments in Oregon history.
