2013 Fiesta Bowl: Oregon vs. Kansas State game preview, location, history and more

After just missing out on chances to head to the National Championship game to face Notre Dame, both Oregon and Kansas State will face each other as one-loss teams in the Fiesta Bowl on January 3 in Glendale, AZ.

Saturday, Nov. 17 will be a day to remember for both the Oregon Ducks and the Kansas State Wildcats. That was the day that both of these teams, who were undefeated and playing for a shot at the National Championship game lost, Oregon to Stanford and Kansas State to Baylor, ending their shot at the BCS title and giving Alabama another chance at it. Now these two one-loss teams are on a collision course in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl set to be played in Glendale, AZ.

The two high-powered offenses will put on a show as Oregon is second in scoring and Kansas State is 10th. The Ducks have the second best rushing attack in college football and will challenge Kansas State's front seven, especially the linebackers. At the same time, though, many believe that Kansas State has the advantage at the quarterback position. Whoever comes out on top, this season's Fiesta Bowl is picked to be one of the more exciting and high-scoring games as these two teams' potent offenses clash.
