2012 bowl game projections: Oregon headed to the Fiesta Bowl

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

The Oregon Ducks are projected to be picked as an at-large team to play in the Fiesta Bowl.

With the college football regular season complete and only the conference championship games remaining, a clearer picture of where teams will land in the BCS and other bowl games is shaping up. After a long, unpredictable season, at least two people think the same about the Oregon Ducks.

Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards of ESPN both project that the Ducks will face the Kansas St. Wildcats in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl as an at-large team. With the Stanford Cardinal projected to face the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Rose Bowl due to their predicted Pac-12 championship, the flashiest team in the land will be picked to still participate in the BCS festivities by heading to the Fiesta Bowl.

Meanwhile, Edwards predicts the Oregon St. Beavers to face the Oklahoma St. Cowboys in the Valero Alamo Bowl as the Pac-12 representative. Schlabach has the Cowboys facing the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the Bridgepoint Holiday Bowl. Whichever one of the two bowls chooses the Beavers, the other one will most likely land the UCLA Bruins, according to Edwards and Schlabach.
