The Eagle’s Kellis Robinett and The Oregonian’s Aaron Fentress continue a 10-part series comparing Oregon and Kansas State ahead of Thursday’s Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. on ESPN, Ch. 32. Go to Kansas.com/wildcats for past matchups.
The Oregonian’s Aaron Fentress says
Edge to K-State. Oregon’s wide receivers don’t scare many teams and the Wildcats rank tied for 10th in the nation with 18 interceptions.
The Eagle’s Kellis Robinett says
Edge to Oregon. K-State’s zone coverage is effective against teams that look downfield, but it has struggled against opponents that stretch the field with short, quick passes. Oregon’s speed will give the Ducks an advantage.
