Michigan State and Oregon are set to face off in the Redbox Bowl today as the two teams vie for a chance to finish the season on a high note.

The Spartans started the season ranked in the top-15, but early losses to Arizona State and Northwestern quickly ruled them out of the running for the Big Ten title.

The Ducks got off to a 5-1 start that included a win over eventual PAC-12 champion Washington. But Mario Cristobal's team lost three of their last six games to finish 8-4 and unranked.

ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the game.

ESPN’s computer model believes that Oregon will win the game. The computer model gives the Ducks a 55.0 percent chance to win this Saturday’s game.

Michigan State and Oregon have played each six times in three home-and-home series, splitting every single one.

This will be the first time that the two teams play each other at a neutral venue or with a bowl on the line.

The game will be played at 3 p.m. EST on FOX.
