See you in El Paso!

A season to remember...

Ranked #2 and with three matches against unranked opponents left has always been sexy to any college football team. But not without your star, Heisman front-runner QB. Not just that, you're without your 2nd and 3rd choice QB and was left with only two freshmen QBs to get the team going. That's the case for Oregon football team this season.

In fact, #2 wasn't a sexy position this season, which saw it changed hands eight times. The current #2 LSU is ranked at that spot for the third time. That adds to the eight different combinations among the top two teams in the AP poll and the loss of the top two teams, Missouri and West Virginia, in the final week of the regular season.

Dennis Dixon, whom the reason for the Ducks to stand tall this season, is the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year despite missing the final two games. That's a mere consolation, as the Heisman was in his hands before injuring his knee at Arizona. Anyway, he is still in the contention for the Maxwell or Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, or at least the Johnny Unitas Awad for top senior QB.

Anyhow, the Oregon Ducks are headed to El Paso, Texas for the Sun Bowl game on 31st December, to face University of South Florida Bulls. The Bulls, just like Ducks, was ranked #2 after winning its first six games, then dropped three straight before closing the regular season with another three wins.

So, bye for now. Til we meet again for the Sun Bowl.

Oh ya, the basketball season in underway. The Ducks are currently ranked #19 with 6-1 record. I'll be posting basketball updates after the Sun Bowl. Go Ducks!
