2013 Fiesta Bowl picks and predictions: Oregon a near-unanimous favorite

Christian Petersen

Many college football experts are picking the Oregon Ducks over the Kansas State Wildcats in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl.

With the slate of BCS bowl games about to start Tuesday, many experts are chiming in with their opinions of who they think will win the big games.

When it comes to the 2013 Fiesta Bowl, the Oregon Ducks appear to be a near-unanimous selection among football reporters across the country over the Kansas State Wildcats.

Of the six CBS Sports writers to submit bowl predictions, only one, Jerry Hinnen, feels that the Wildcats will win. Those picking Oregon from CBS Sports include Dennis Dodd, Bruce Feldman and Tom Fornelli.

SI's Stewart Mandel predicts that Oregon will have no problem putting points up on the board against Kansas State, as he has them winning 40-27.

Will Harris of ESPN is going in a different direction, however, as he feels that Kansas State will pull a 31-30 upset.

Kickoff for the 2013 Fiesta Bowl from Glendale, Ariz. is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. PT on Jan. 3.
