Oregon pulled off the best April Fools’ prank in college football
Oregon’s motto is "Win The Day," and they might have won April Fools’ Day in 2016. The Ducks went to great lengths to make it look like they bulldozed the field at Autzen Stadium in order to replace the surface with an LED field that will change colors and shoot fireworks when the Ducks score, putting together an entire gallery of the construction work on the program website.

A teaser video released more than a month ago – prank videos published on April 1st are a little too obvious – shows what the field would look like, and it seems like something the Ducks might actually use.
The company handling the work? Gelos LED Systems, a subsidiary of the Globex Corporation.
Fans of the Simpsons will remember that Homer Simpson was briefly employed by Globex Corporation and moved the family to Cyprus Creek.
Very well played, Oregon.
