The crosswalk in front of the University of Portland's main entrance has a tumultuous history. It has been the site of over six collisions since November 2016, the most recent of which injured a student last November.

Turnovers proved to be one of the major problems for the Pilots this evening, as they ended the game with 18 in total.

The starting date of the holiday changes every year depending on the Hebrew calendar, and this year, it starts on Tuesday, Dec. 12, which happens to be in the middle of UP’s finals week.
