Great Clips of the Week: Oregon hilariously trolls Arizona State, but it backfires

THE INTERNET — In case we don't see you before the end of the week, happy Thanksgiving to your and your family.

Also, a happy Turkey Day to the Oregon Ducks, who had the best moment of the weekend.

As always, click the video above for more Great Clips of the Week. And remember to think before you tweet.

'Let it O'

Oregon football Twitter has quite the following, and the Ducks tried to leverage that following and celebrate the release of "Frozen II" this weekend with a parody of "Let it Go" released shortly before Saturday night's kickoff at Arizona State.

The video received mixed reviews, with some fans laughing, others finding the gross skewering of a Disney classic offensive, and some just wanting to know what Puddles the Duck would look like dressed as Elsa.

But the worst part about this video?

The Sun Devils picked off Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert twice and held off the Ducks, 31-28.

The loss effectively ends Oregon's College Football Playoff hopes, though the Ducks were still all-but guaranteed a berth in the Pac 12 title game because of the excessive mediocrity of the North division.

Here's Arizona State's response, by the way.

The coolest thing you'll see on Twitter

The best thing we saw this week came from FCS Youngstown State.

The Penguins played their final game of the regular season, but senior quarterback Nathan Mays wasn’t in the starting lineup.

Mays was injured during Youngstown’s loss to North Dakota State, suffering a broken leg and dislocated ankle that effectively ended his season long before senior night.

Still, his teammates wanted him to see one final snap. So with a 21-3 lead over Illinois Sate, the Penguins dressed Mays and carried him on to the field so the senior could take the final knee of end the season.

This is what sports is all about, folks: teammates, brothers, family, all battling for the same goal — and sticking together through wins, losses and devastating injuries.

And finally …

BYU basketball is spending Thanksgiving in Maui, where the Cougars will take on UCLA in the first game of the Maui Invitational tonight (9:30 p.m. MST, ESPN2).

Yoeli Childs won’t be in that game, as you all know, because of a nine-game NCAA-mandated suspension handed down over the summer. So the Bingham High product spent some time walking 94 feet on the beach with ESPN analyst Jay Bilas prior to the game.

The duo dished on the Childs’ upbringing, the Cougars’ season, and some of the oddest rules on campus in Provo — like why Bilas wouldn’t get away with his trademark stubble if he were a BYU student (without a beard card, of course).
