By Chip Patterson | College Football/Basketball Writer

On a weekend when Oregon saw its BCS title dreams likely disappear in one of the most devastating losses of the season, Nike chairman and noted Ducks supporter Phil Knight was able to cheer up with a quick visit to Tuscaloosa to witness Alabama protect the No. 1 spot in the BCS standings with a win against LSU.

Dennis Dodd and others reported that Knight was walking the sideline wearing Alabama apparel. Late Saturday night, a photo surfaced to confirm the chatter.
