The Lowdown: Let's get right to the down and dirty in this year's Fiesta Bowl. Can Kansas State's defense slow down Oregon's scoring machine? Only one team has been able to do it and that was Stanford in their 17-14 victory over Oregon on November 17th. The Ducks scored at least 40 points in every other game this season and scored 50 points or more seven different...
