Chung beams with Oregon pride

FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots rookie safety Pat Chung is as intense off the field as he is on it, especially when his alma mater is in action.

Chung doesn't get to watch often, but he had a rare opportunity Thursday night as he went wire to wire in watching Oregon punch its ticket to the Rose Bowl with a 37-33 win over Oregon State. Oregon hasn't been to the Rose Bowl since 1995.

"I'm glued to my TV, there is no moving, I bring my waters and snacks and I'm right there," he said. "A bad play happens, I'm yelling. A good play happens, I'm yelling.

"I'm diehard, man. I'm still bleeding yellow and green. The only difference is that there is a little [Patriots] red and blue in there, too."
