Oregon Ducks offensive line weighs in against PBR bucking bull

Oregon Athletics

Rest easy, Dakota Prukop, Royce Freeman and the entire Oregon Ducks backfield - you officially have a proven mountain of muscle protecting you.

Need proof? A quintet of Ducks offensive linemen officially weigh more than a bull. And not just any old bull.

The Professional Bull Riders tour series is in Eugene this weekend for its latest stop, and they brought one of its bucking bulls - Percolator - to campus Thursday. The mission? Weigh Percolator in against some of the biggest, baddest dudes on the Oregon roster.

The Ducks put offensive linemen Calvin Throckmorton (listed at 6'6", 300 lbs.), Shane Lemieux (6'6", 310 lbs.), Jake Hanson (6'5", 295 lbs.), Cameron Hunt (6'4", 300 lbs.) and Zach Okun (6'4", 315 lbs.) on the scale to see how they weighed in as a group versus one of the fiercest bulls that PBR riders try to tame. The results:

In the end, it was the Ducks O-Line that prevailed. The five Ducks came in at a grand total of 1,510 pounds, a stout 70 pounds heavier than Percolator at 1,440 pounds.
