Doctors advised the family to get their things in order: Lauren wouldn't live past December. To Lauren, that meant she still had time to make her dream come true. Which brings us to October 1, 2014: Lauren's 19th birthday. There was a surprise party after practice with her teammates from The Mount.

When Mount Saint Joseph University opens its women's basketball season in November, the opening game will be unforgettable.

It won't have anything to do with the score.

For one incoming freshman, taking the floor will be fulfilling the dream of a lifetime.

If she lives that long.

But the video doesn't include anyone from the Ducks Men's Basketball team, which has been at the forefront of the sexual assault discussion following allegations against 3 players last March.

The Dawgs come to Autzen with new head coach Chris Petersen - a former Duck coach who twice beat the Ducks while head coach of the Boise State Broncos.

The game starts at 5 p.m. and will be televised on Fox Sports 1.

The game comes days shy of the 20th anniversary of the Oct. 22, 1994, showdown between the two teams.

In that game, Oregon cornerback Kenny Wheaton intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown, sealing a Duck victory.

The play, known as The Pick, is celebrated as a turning point in the program's history.

The 97-yard interception return for a touchdown by Wheaton put the Ducks up for good, 31-20, in what proved to be a key victory on their way to the Rose Bowl.

Twenty years ago, the Washington Huskies came into Autzen Stadium as heavy favorties.

Late in the game, quarterback Danny O'Neil led the Oregon offense on a 98 yard drive to put the Ducks ahead by four.

But then like so many years before, here came the Dawgs, marching right back down the field in what looked like a game-winning drive to beat the Ducks.

What happened next stands as a turning point in the history of the program. | Learn More

The dream of the 90s is alive at Autzen

Oregon led Washington 24-20 at Autzen. The Huskies had a first down on the 9-yard line with plenty of time to play. The ball was snapped. The pass went up, headed for the corner of the end zone.

Next stop, touchdown - only for Oregon, not Washington.
