Chip Kelly praises ‘unbelievable’ Oregon fans at Autzen Stadium
Chip Kelly had high praise for the fans of UCLA’s opponent this weekend.
On Saturday, Kelly and his Bruins head up to Eugene for a game against a school the UCLA head coach knows well. Kelly, who spent six seasons at Oregon (four as the head coach), will return to Autzen Stadium for a Pac-12 game.
Ahead of the matchup, Kelly was extremely complimentary of Oregon’s fans, calling them a “very educated crowd” and “unbelievable.”
Chip Kelly on Autzen Stadium: "I think they’ve got probably the best home advantage because of the crowd and the setting and the stadium and how loud they can make it. A very educated crowd—know when to cheer and not to cheer. …That crowd’s unbelievable up there."

Kelly is certainly familiar with the crowd there. They supported him as he led the Ducks to a 46-7 record during his time at Oregon. However, this weekend, they will be against him as the Bruins look for just their third win of the season.
