Well, here we are again. For the third season in a row, the final game is also the first game of a new year. That's a good situation for a college football program, and the Oregon Ducks will attempt to make the most of it against the Big Ten champion Wisconsin Badgers on Monday. The 98th Rose Bowl Game is upon us, and with that comes great news from Oregon AMS Vice President Bobby Corser, who sees near perfect weather for what could shape up to be an even better season for the Pac-12 champs. Without further adieu, we present the official Duckcast:
Sunday, Jan. 1, 11:15 p.m. PT
"Duck fans have been waiting for this day for a long time. The last time we saw the boys on the field, UCLA wasn't much of an opponent and Coach Kelly was about to enjoy some Dr. Pepper and send his Christmas presents with UPS. That night, the air was cold and crisp, and you had to scrape ice off your windshield before you could leave Autzen Stadium. Fast forward to Pasadena and the Ducks won't have to worry about any weather. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s at kickoff, under mostly clear skies. A light wind will come down off the canyons and it will be an absolutely amazing day for The Rose Bowl Game presented by Vizio. If you're going to the game, wear yellow and make sure to take sunscreen! Cheer on the Ducks to victory and bring home that really cool trophy! Go Ducks!"
