Oregon wears special uniforms designed by cancer survivors

  Oregon wore special uniforms against Nebraska.

If you watch Oregon play Nebraska on Saturday afternoon, you'll notice the Ducks' shiny silver, chrome helmets, yellow outlines around their numbers, and yellow socks. Oregon is no stranger to sporting a seemingly infinite number of uniform combinations, the team's latest has a unique, and inspiring, origin story.

That's because a trio of cancer survivors who have received treatment from the OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland, Ore., helped design the Ducks' Nike Vapor Untouchable Performance System uniforms.

The uniforms were designed with companion sneakers, which were made available Sept. 4, and all proceeds will go to a pediatric cancer fund at OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital.

At halftime, the Oregon Duck mascot went to midfield, where he crushed the word "Cancer." You can watch below.

In a special post-game moment following Oregon's 42-35 win against Nebraska, the three cancer survivors who helped design the Ducks' uniforms – Sophia, Ethan and Joe – received game balls.
