Undefeated Oregon is projected to play in the Rose Bowl this season versus Big 10 champion Nebraska, according to Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com.

The Ducks, undefeated at 6-0 to start the season, debuted in third in the BCS standings this week and are ranked second in the AP poll behind only Alabama. Palm projects USC to land in the national championship game versus Alabama which insinuates that the Trojans will defeat the Ducks in their November 3 showdown.

Eighth ranked Oregon State, who has yet to lose a game this season, is projected to play in the Alamo Bowl versus the University of Texas. Texas has suffered two losses in a row to Big 12 rivals West Virginia and Oklahoma and have yet to play No. 4 Kansas State this season.

Palm projects unranked Washington will play Nevada in the Maaco bowl on December 22. Washington is currently 3-3 on the season after suffering back-to-back losses to Oregon and USC in consecutive weeks.
