It’s only 19 days until the 2013 Fiesta Bowl where the Oregon Ducks will face the Kansas State Wildcats. Every day we’ll post a meaningful photo from the year to recap the eventful season and get fans prepped for Oregon’s fourth consecutive BCS game. Be sure to check out the rest of The Emerald’s football coverage leading up to the game.

As Oregon’s season progress the greatest revelation was Marcus Mariota’s high level of play. Against Arizona, the redshirt freshman passed for 260 yards and 2 touchdowns. One of his greatest assets is the ability to extend a play by escaping the rush and either finding a receiver or rushing for extra yardage.
