The Oregon Ducks have been a step ahead of the rest of the college football world when it comes to uniforms in recent years. However, this weekend, the Ducks will be kicking it old school in order to pay tribute to a play that changed the program forever.

On Oct. 22, 1994, Oregon knocked off No. 9 Washington, 31-20. The play of the game: "The Pick."

With the Ducks leading 24-20 late in the fourth quarter, the Huskies were driving and looking to take the lead. That's when Oregon's Kenny Wheaton stepped up and returned an interception 97 yards for the game-sealing touchdown. 

Oregon pulled out a 31-20 victory over Washington and went on to win its first conference title since 1957. The Ducks have won six conference titles since 1994.

With the Huskies in town this Saturday, the Ducks will be honoring the 20th anniversary of "The Pick" by wearing these throwback uniforms.
