Oregon-Washington is one of the West Coast's best college football rivalries. For the past two seasons, the rivalry game has gone down to the wire.

The Ducks were down 28-14 early in the 3rd quarter of today's game. But Oregon's offense managed to score 21 points over the last two quarters, escaping Seattle with a 35-31 win.

After the game, Oregon LB Troy Dye spoke with ESPN's Holly Rowe. At the end of the interview, Dye trolled Washington with a "W down", mocking Washington fans "W" hand gesture they use during games.

Check out his epic trolling in the video below.

This isn't the first time an Oregon player has flashed the "W down" when playing Washington. In last year's Oregon-Washington thriller, receiver Dillon Mitchell trolled the Huskies in the same way after scoring a touchdown. The Ducks went on to win in overtime.

Is this a new tradition Oregon players will start to use more frequently? It's pretty similar to Oklahoma's "horns down" trolling of Texas, a trolling hand gesture which has taken the college football world by storm.

Oregon's "W down" won't garner as much attention as "horns down" used by Oklahoma. But it adds a spicy new element to an already heated Pac-12 rivalry.
