Turns out Oregon’s pep rally yesterday was not all that impressive. Except for the parachuting Duck, of course.

An ESPN blogger argues that the Wildcats’ receiving corps is the X factor in tonight’s game.

The Oregonian reminds everyone that Chip Kelly Watch 2013 will commence immediately following the Fiesta Bowl.

KATU News caught up with some Duck fans that got a little carried away with their school spirit.

ESPN detailed the 10 Fiesta Bowl stats you need to know.

Deadspin once again brings you the most important stat of the game: Kansas State coach Bill Snyder was already a father when the Fiesta Bowl was born back in 1971. Chip Kelly? Just 8 years old.

And, in news that will no doubt elicit relief from Oregon fans, a Phoenix Zoo tiger named Hadiah has apparently chosen the Ducks as the winner of the Fiesta Bowl.
