Casey Matthews discusses Ducks' title run and brother's NFL playoff win
DALLAS, Texas -- Former Oregon standout linebacker Casey Matthews held a meet and greet with Ducks fans on Sunday at the College Football Playoff Fan Central on Sunday, about 24 hours before his alma mater faced Ohio State in the CFP National Championship at AT&T Stadium.
Pac-12 Networks' Ashley Adamson had the chance to speak with Matthews, who currently plays for former Oregon coach Chip Kelly on the Philadelphia Eagles. Matthews still has plenty of Pac-12 pride, as he helped Adamson spread the #BackThePac energy to Oregon fans.
"Any time you see green and yellow, it's good," Matthews said. "Great showing out here. You can definitely tell it's exciting to be a Duck right now. Hopefully we bring home our first National Championship."
Matthews also might have been something of a marked man on Sunday in Dallas. Earlier in the afternoon, his brother, Clay, and the Green Bay Packers knocked the Dallas Cowboys out of the NFL playoffs with a controversial 26-21 victory.
"Dallas losing, and me playing for the Eagles, defnitely not a fan out here in Dallas," Matthews said. "But it was a good win for him and it's good to see him going to the next round. Looking forward to him getting back to the Super Bowl."
