The video features leaders in the University of Oregon community, including many athletes.

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

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.
