To attend college football games, the Oregon Ducks and Oregon State Beavers will require vaccination documentation or a negative COVID-19 test.

OREGON, EUGENE
— Oregon and Oregon State were the first Power 5 schools to declare that persons above the age of 12 will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test in order to attend football games.
The decision was taken with public health authorities and “peer institutions in the state,” according to Oregon’s release on Friday. The negative test result must be from within three days of the event.
The mandate takes effect on Monday, ending a week in which state officials warned of fast filling hospitals as daily recorded cases hit new highs.
Several Pac-12 colleges have mandated that students and employees get vaccinated or request for an exemption.
On September 1, the Oregon football team will kick off its season at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, which has a capacity of 54,000.
Fresno State was defeated by a score of 4 to 1.
On September 1, Oregon State kicks off its home schedule at Reser Stadium.
Hawaii is favored by 11 points.
Due to a recent COVID-19 spike, Hawaii became the first major college football school to announce that it would have no fans in attendance for its first sporting activities of the season.
Hawaii’s first home football game is scheduled for September.
Against Portland State, the score was 5 to 1.
The announcements come just a week after Tulane University in New Orleans became the first NCAA Division I institution to require proof of vaccination or a negative test to attend sporting events.
Tulane’s decision was prompted by a city rule that also affects the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, although school officials said they were working to implement the policy on their own.

Jay Cutler was fired from an Uber promotion because to his opposition to the disguising of children.

Jay Cutler left the NFL to take on a new role as a man of the people.
After stating his ideas on school boards’ stringent mask regulations on minors, the unrepentant former quarterback — renowned for his strong arm and extraordinary guy energy — stated that he has been withdrawn from an Uber-NFL promotional campaign.
CLICK HERE FOR MORE FOXNEWS.COM SPORTS COVERAGE Cutler has referenced recordings of zealous parents, notably OutKick founder Clay Travis, who was grilled by the Williamson County Board on Tuesday, battling for their children’s right to avoid wearing masks and other PPE in the classroom.
All of this is based on CDC evidence that shows that children are safe from major COVID effects.
This week has seen a number of impassioned speeches on behalf of parents who are committed to fight school board policies that are not based on evidence.
Cutler, a father of three, has been a vocal opponent of mask mandates, putting him in hot water with firms that monitor behavior to maintain their monopoly on information.
Uber’s choice was clearly aimed at keeping the correct politics on board rather than allowing for a range of viewpoints in their promotions.
Cutler’s work with pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly has helped support children with diabetes — a demographic severely hit by COVID-19 — since 2009. While talking heads criticize Cutler for his “anti-science” remarks, his work with Eli Lilly has helped support children with diabetes — a demographic heavily impacted by COVID-19 — since 2009.
Cutler is the founder of the Jay Cutler Foundation, which has supported at-risk youngsters suffering in and out of high schools.
GET THE FOX NEWS APP HERE Although evidence on the hazards of COVID among children shows that the virus, in all of its forms, is less dangerous than regular flu seasons, firms like Uber are willing to ignore the data in order to create examples out of opposing viewpoints.
This does not appear to be the case.
Cutler, thankfully, appears unconcerned by Uber’s views, adding “Future School board member” to his Twitter account.
Keith Olbermann criticized Cutler’s views on kid masks, implying that the former quarterback said something correct.

Troy Hill’s amazing journey from Youngstown, Ohio to the Cleveland Browns – The Athletic

Troy Hill’s ticket to a better life — and possibly the one that could save his life — went unused the first time around.Feeling a little like he’d been duped by his family, but largely that he wasn’t ready to leave the only place he’d ever known at the age of 15, Hill skipped his one-way flight from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles and instead stayed out all night on the streets of the south end of Pittsburgh.
He wasn’t thinking about the NFL at the moment, mostly because he wasn’t thinking about anything other than the next night’s game.
Hill wasn’t academically able to play high school football one year after starting at Chaney High School, and he wasn’t coming to school at all most days.”When I did go,” Hill recalled, “I was generally asleep in class.” Hill’s mother, Sandra Jennings, felt her son needed a change, so she requested her brother, Jim Gilmer, to take Troy away from the house she shared with her mother and move him to California.
In the early 1970s, Gilmer departed Youngstown for the military, eventually settling in Southern California.
Hill had previously aided family members by housing them for a few weeks or even months, and when he learned that his mother and uncle were planning a longer-term arrangement, he purposefully missed the flight.He wasnt going anywhere, which was exactly the problem at the time and now makes his story all the more extraordinary.
Hill has had no qualms about revealing any aspect of his experience, from high school to college to now, as he prepares to begin his seventh NFL season.
