"Both teams finished 9-3 and we expect a great game," said Holiday Bowl President Larry Baber.
This is Oregon's third trip to the Holiday Bowl in Oregon Head Coach Mike Bellotti's tenure in Eugene. The Ducks finished 9-3 for the season and 7-2 in the Pacific-10 Conference with a 65-38 win over Oregon State. Because both Oregon and Oregon State finished with identical 7-2 records in the conference race and tied for second place, Oregon was chosen because of the head-to-head competition.
Interestingly, the Cowboys' headman Mike Gundy, is a member of the Holiday Bowl's Hall of Fame for a game he participated in 1988 featuring Barry Sanders.
Oregon will travel to San Diego on Dec. 25th to begin final preparations for the bowl game that will kickoff at 5 p.m on Dec. 30th at Qualcom Stadium in San Diego.
