EUGENE, Ore. – Oregon's uniforms were the talk of Saturday's game against Washington State, as the No. 2 Ducks donned pink and black uniforms worn to support breast cancer awareness.

After taking down the Cougars at Autzen, Oregon notables like coach Mark Helfrich, Dan Fouts, Joey Harrington, Ahmad Rashad and Phil Knight signed the helmets

The collectables were then put up for auction, with the proceeds going to the Kay Yow Cancer fund.

With three days left in the week-long auction bids on the bright pink helmets range anywhere from $2,000 to $20,000.

“Cancer has touched so many lives and hopefully, together with Nike and the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, we can help create awareness and help raise money for the fight against women’s cancers,” said coach Mark Helfrich.
