Her role was named “Amanda in the City” as Pflugrad was a woman about town in the Phoenix area, where she focused her coverage on “charity events that both pro athletes and celebrities are involved with in the Valley.”

#4 Oregon Ducks: College Football 77 in 77

The Oregon Ducks 2011 college football season will commence under the dark cloud of an NCAA investigation, but Oregon’s exciting, super-charged offense (#1 in the nation in scoring, total offense) will give their fans some sunny skies. Third straight conference title? Getting back to the national championship game? Ma.

oregon-cheerleaders-hot

The Oregon Ducks open up against the LSU Tigers at Cowboys Stadium Saturday night at 7pm CT. Talk about starting fast out of the gate!

I’ll still do two previews each week; only this time It’s going to be a nationally significant/sometimes out of region game in addition to the regional game I’ll be at the press box for. Not only is this the game of the week by miles and miles, it’s also the last two teams I previewed in my 77 in 77. That’s 77 college football teams in 77 days.

So let’s kick 2011 off!
