"For him to come back and play in this game is huge for our offense", OR quarterback Justin Herbert said.

OR did get itself back into the game, thanks to some help from the defensive side of the ball. Herbert was pressured and looked like he was trying to throw it away but instead he turned it over for the third time as the Ducks have four turnovers.

The Ducks, down 24-0 with roughly 40 seconds remaining in the half, faced a potential 31-0 deficit with Boise State driving at the Ducks' 10-yard line. The Oregon Ducks have split their last 12 bowl appearances. Freeman ran for 1,475 yards this season along with 16 touchdowns. The Ducks leading rusher won't play in the game as he prepares himself for the NFL Draft, and his absence should have an impact on the offense.

OR and Boise State will kickoff at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.

This year, Boise State in particular has been a driving force for college esports.

Royce Freeman made the decision earlier this week to skip the Las Vegas Bowl.

"We have the utmost respect for them due to their history and what they show on film how they do things on and off the field so to me that's the most relevant and important thing we have a tremendous game against a tremendous opponent", said Oregon Head Coach Mario Cristobal. But since Taggart bolted to Florida State, the interest in the game has risen exponentially. With an interim head coach, I doubt Oregon's roster will be fully focused on the game itself.

In their previous two meetings, in 2008 and 2009, the Mustangs prevailed, winning 37-32 and 19-8, respectively.
