Here we go again. Another season, another BCS bowl for the Oregon Ducks. This time, it's back in the desert against Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl. University of Phoenix Stadium has a retractable roof, but it will be closed for tonight's game. That won't stop us for tapping our weather guy, AMS Vice President Bobby Corser, for a look at the official Duck Cast:
"The Oregon Ducks 2012 season will come to an end in 2013 and playing on or after new years is the goal. The Ducks took care of Oregon State and punched their tickets to the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona. University of Phoenix Stadium will be the venue that plays host to the game as Kansas State comes calling. This is the same place, just two years ago, that Oregon and Auburn played the "Natty". It's a dome, which makes this forecast pretty easy. It will be a comfortable at kickoff, but cool enough for a sweatshirt or light jacket as the night wears on. Other than that, no wind, rain, or anything inside to worry about. The boys will leave it all on the field. If you are going to the game, make sure to wear "YELLOW" and cheer for a BCS bowl victory. Go Ducks !"
