In honor of college football season getting underway this weekend, we're holding a contest to see which school has the best game day traditions.

  • Let's set aside for a minute the hot feelings about the University of Oregon's move to the Big Ten, leaving Oregon State scrambling for a league starting next fall.

Details: Our bracket includes colleges and universities in cities that are home to an Axios Local newsroom, or that have one of our newsrooms nearby.

  • This week, UO is up against Arizona State — clearly an opportunity for the Ducks to dominate.

Our thoughts on why Oregon deserves to advance in this contest:

ğŸŽ¸ They're "Thunderstruck," no doubt by our "Shout."

🙀 We throw the O. The most perfect letter, even if it's not first in the alphabet.

🏍️ The Duck on the Harley. Nothing can compete.

Vote here by noon Tuesday to keep the Ducks in the running.
