    EUGENE — Oregon is an underdog for the second time in as many games.

    The No. 25 Ducks (4-2) opened as three-point underdogs against No. 10 Iowa State (8-3) in the Fiesta Bowl at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. on Jan. 2 (1 p.m., ESPN), according to VegasInsider.com, which lists the line from online sportsbook Circa Sports. The move moved to ISU minus-4.

    UO is 5-4 against Big 12 teams but has never played ISU. Oregon is 2-0 all-time in the Fiesta Bowl, which has never featured Iowa State.



    Shrunken bowl season makes it more important to watch'em all

    Well, hope you're happy, Mr. (or Miss) There Are Too Many Bowls guy (or gal).

    This long season through a pandemic has whittled the bowl lineup from the 43 games that were originally scheduled to fewer than 30. That's a lot less college football and there is no reason to be happy about it.


    Oregon players excited for Fiesta Bowl gift package featuring PS5
    The Fiesta Bowl’s title sponsor is Sony and the PlayStation 5 is the gift, players from No. 25 Oregon and No. 10 Iowa State will receive for reaching the Jan. 2 game.

    EUGENE — Oregon defensive coordinator Andy Avalos is among two candidates to interview for the head coaching job at Boise State, according to the Idaho Press.

    Avalos, a Boise State alum and former Broncos defensive coordinator,.. and Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator and former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore have both been interviewed for the head coaching job, according to the report.

    A report earlier Saturday by FootballScoop indicated Moore is the lead candidate but should he choose to stay in the NFL, Boise State has “another alum ready to go.”

    Herbert been looking good, not as good as the blonde. OR maybe in just a different way.
    I'll take the three and bet Ducks.
    Iowa State got whacked at home by ULL and split games with an underachieving Oklahoma. A couple of 3 point wins (lucky) and they are overrated. The Ducks haven't played their best game yet.

    Ducks are top ten since 2000, congrats

    you can have all of those
    thanks, buddy,.. I'm just happy that I'll be able to see them play again, and in a game that still has some standing, a six game season isn't near enough

    Sorry duck. Don’t sweat it man. This season really only matters to the Ohio State vs. Bama winner.

    Phil and Penny Knight gave 2nd and 3rd largest U.S. charitable donations of 2020

    https://www.oregonlive.com/business...-largest-us-charitable-donations-of-2020.html

    The world’s richest person made the single-largest charitable contribution in 2020, a $10 billion gift that is intended to help fight climate change... Amazon’s founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, whose worth estimates at roughly $188 billion

    Phil Knight, who with his wife, Penny, made the second- and third-largest donations last year according to the Chronicle, increased his wealth by about 77% over the same March-to-December period. Knight and his wife gave more than $900 million to the Knight Foundation and $300 million to the University of Oregon.

    :cool: Uncle Phil's wealth increased by 77% in nine months,.. whew, I was afraid @Bengal B's Nike boycott was gonna sink him
