Oregon to wear pink Breast Cancer Awareness jerseys on Thursday

Sep 30, 2014, 6:55 PM | Updated: 6:56 pm

Arizona Wildcats fans, this is a warning, your TV is supposed to be covered in pink on Thursday night.

The Oregon Ducks will be wearing special jerseys when they host the Wildcats on Thursday, with pink numbers, names, socks, gloves, shoes and team decals on black jerseys. The Ducks will wear the pink in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Ducks are wearing the uniforms in association with the Kay Yow Cancer Foundation. The foundation honors the former North Carolina State University women’s basketball head coach who died from breast cancer in 2009.

This is the second straight year Oregon is wearing the pink jerseys, after donning them against Washington State in 2013. The school raised over $200,000 for the foundation in 2013, when they auctioned 25 game-worn helmets.

The cancer fund will make a $100,000 research grant to the Oregon Health & Science Knight Cancer Institute, and the school will donate part of the proceeds from special edition fan merchandise to the foundation.
