Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota clearly has plenty of admirers after winning the Heisman Trophy in landslide fashion on Saturday. Count Oregon State among them.
The Beavers made their admiration for Mariota known with a congratulatory message on their athletic website, a classy move coming from an in-state and Pac-12 rival.
"It takes dedication. Standing with your team until the job's done. Representing your school and state with character to the last," the message read.
"And you've done that."
Check out the entire message on Oregon State's athletic website.
