It’s only 17 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.

Kenjon Barner emerged with his best game of the season so far against Washington State, running for 195 yards and scoring three touchdowns — including a long of 80 yards. With the absence of LaMichael James, he finally proved he could carry the load as Oregon’s full-time running back. As the season progressed, he continued his stellar play and even had his name in the Heisman discussion.
