PULLMAN – Washington State paid tribute Saturday to a fallen member of the Oregon football program.

WSU and several other Pac-12 Conference teams honored Spencer Webb, a former Ducks tight end who died tragically this summer from a climbing accident.

Webb wore jersey No. 4 for Oregon. All of the Pac-12 programs hosting games in Week 4 painted the markers at the 4-yard lines yellow in his memory.

A tight end from Sacramento, California, Webb appeared in 29 games for the Ducks over the past four seasons. He tallied 296 yards and four touchdowns on 31 receptions.
