Carl Mile Jr. of the Kansas State Wildcats stands bewildered holding the infamous helmets worn by the Oregon Ducks. The uniforms were shown so that they have actual feathers on them and literally change colors depending on the angle. The Pac-12 team will take on the Big 12 team for ALL OF THE TOSTITOS in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Both teams had a shot at the BCS National Championship game but each blew it with a loss allowing Alabama to play Notre Dame. This picture sums up their situations perfectly.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- This time a year ago, Oregon running back Kenjon Barner was dodging more questions ahead of the Rose Bowl about whether or not he would return for his senior season than about the opposing defense. This year, it's been all football.
Barner ultimately took a gamble on one more season at Oregon and is now seeing a payoff even greater than he thought possible...
Nino Williams scored 16 points and No. 25 Kansas State pulled away late to defeat South Dakota 70-50 on Monday.

The Oregon Ducks and head coach Chip Kelly arrived in Glendale, AZ Monday for the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl amid the various NFL head coaching firings that were taking place.
So naturally, Kelly is going to have to field questions about whether he's making the jump to the NFL.
"I've got a game to play," Kelly said during the Fiesta Bowl's media day on Monday...
Kansas State coach Bruce Weber wasn't surprised his team suffered a letdown in its last game, but he knows that can't continue with Big 12 play starting next week.
The 25th-ranked Wildcats will try to deliver a more well-rounded effort on Monday when former Wildcat Juevol Myles leads South Dakota into Manhattan.
Coming off a 67-61 victory over then-No. 8 Florida on Dec...
MANHATTAN, Kan. - After missing the final two games of the year with what was believed to be a broken fibula, the Wildcats are expected to have Ty Zimmerman back in uniform for the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3.
MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State signed five junior college players this December and more may be on the way. The staff is close to extending an offer to Tyrone Ward, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound linebacker from City College of San Francisco. Ward spoke to KStateFans.com about his season and how his recruiting is shaping up heading into January.
After knocking off the No. 1 team in the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday, we had to hope there would be no let down on Monday afternoon by the UConn Huskies women's basketball team.
It's pretty safe to say there was no let down.
Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis led six Huskies in double figures with 19 points as they went on to an easy 95-51 win over the Oregon Ducks at Matthew...
Oregon picked up their eleventh win of the season, but may have lost a key contributor in the process. The Ducks (11-2) beat Nevada 56-43, in a game of runs that included long scoring droughts for both teams, but Arsalan Kazemi left the game in the first half with a head injury.
It’s been more than a month since the Oregon Ducks last took the field, but not much has changed since the Nov. 24 routing of the Oregon State Beavers. The quad from Eugene is still one of the best teams in the country, and even though they’re not in the bowl game they hoped for, they still have a chance to assert their dominance on a national stage.
At one point...
