Alamo Bowl: Texas Longhorns vs. Oregon Ducks

Marcus Mariota of the Oregon Ducks.

Eight games into the season the Ducks were undefeated and in the National Championship conversation. Then their quarterback got hurt and they lost a tough game to Stanford. With a still injured quarterback they dropped another to lose out on the Rose Bowl, and now they draw a Texas team that had a chance at the Big 12 title. No matter how good the second place Longhorns might be, they are not as good as a healthy Ducks team, and it would seem Oregon should have their way with Texas. But, the Longhorns are playing very close to home, and this will be the last game for their coach, so the emotional aspect could give them enough of a boost to upset the Ducks.
