Boise State is 3-0 all-time in the Las Vegas Bowl and OR holds a 1-1 record in the bowl game. Mario Cristobal leads the Ducks for the first time since being promoted to head coach. When Herbert is on the field the Ducks are putting up over 50 points a game.

First, Oregon coach Willie Taggart has left for the Florida State job. If you ask boise state linebacker, Leighton Vander Esch, the Ducks still have other valuable options to go to. Quarterback Justin Herbert is healthy and ready to lead the team to victory; Herbert has helped the team average 52 points per game since his return, giving the Ducks some much-needed confidence heading into this game.

Boise struggled at the end of the season, narrowly knocking off Fresno State 17-14 on December 2 in the Mountain West title game after losing to the Bulldogs 17-28 on November 25. In receiving, Cedric Wilson caught for 1,290 yards and six touchdowns in 73 receptions while A.J. Richardson added 494 yards and two touchdowns.

HERE'S HERBERT - In another banner season for Pac-12 quarterbacks, Justin Herbert made a strong argument that he is the most indispensable signal-caller in the conference despite throwing for a modest 13 touchdowns against three interceptions in seven starts.

The Oregon Ducks (7-5) finished fourth in th Pac-12 North.

Oil rises after U.S. crude stocks fall, again
Brent crude futures, the worldwide benchmark for oil prices, were at $62.81 a barrel, up 37c, or 0.6% from their last close. But increased production in the United States is driving faster growth in the global supply of oil, the IEA said.

Boise State's last 19 senior classes have won at least one conference championship during their college careers, with 11 winning three or more.

Oregon didn't just win three of four, the Ducks blew out teams like Utah, Arizona and in-state rival Oregon State.

The Las Vegas Bowl is the first matchup of bowl season and it quite possibly could be the game that features the best uniforms.

The Broncos took an early lead against OR with a short screen pass for a touchdown.

There's something to be said about a team riding a high heading into bowl season.
