Saturday’s upset win for No. 11 Oregon over No. 3 Ohio State yielded an all-time great troll move: a rubber duck placed in the center of the “O” in Ohio Stadium.
For days, the culprits of this viral move were a mystery. But on Tuesday, Fox Sports uncovered the identities of these young tricksters: 11-year-old Dublin and 9-year-old Brixton.
Once most of the fans and players had cleared out of the stadium, the two young Oregon superfans jumped down onto the turf and placed the duck at centerfield.
Earlier today, they chatted with FOX Sports’ Charlotte Wilder, who captured the viral image that would become the representation of this weekend’s upset.

Leaving Ohio State with a 35-28 victory over the Buckeyes, the Ducks handed Ryan Day his first regular season loss since taking over the head coaching job in 2018. This was also Oregon’s first win over Ohio State in the all-time series, breaking the previous 0-9 streak.
In this week’s new AP top-25 poll, Oregon jumped Ohio State all the way into the No. 4 position. The Buckeyes dropped six spots into No. 9.
The Ducks will look to continue their success against Stony Brook and Ohio State will look to bounce back against Tulsa later this weekend.
