EUGENE, Ore. - Ellen Degeneres made a surprise appearance via satellite at the University of Oregon on Thursday after Tweeting to her followers to show up dressed for a fiesta - and a chance to win tickets to the BCS game.
Ellen challenged students to write their own UO fight song, with the winner scoring tickets to the game.
And here's the Twitter-ing that made it all happen (edited to appear chronologically).
1. Eugene, Oregon! Get over to the EMU by 2:30 and dress for a fiesta! You'll be glad you did.
2. Throw on your best fiesta outfit and get over to the EMU on the @Univ_Of_Oregon campus. There's gonna be a big prize!
