Oregon took down rival Oregon State on Friday night, notching its eighth win of the season in the process. The Ducks won't be playing in the Pac-12 title game, so their next contest will be a bowl game.

Which bowl game? We won't know for sure until next Sunday, but the most likely contest seems to be the Holiday Bowl.

The Ducks are looking like the fourth team in pecking order in the Pac-12 - behind the two teams in the league's title game (Washington and Utah) and 10-2 Washington State.

The Holiday Bowl takes place in San Diego. It's actually called the San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl this year.

Some have suggested that Iowa, with an 8-4 record, could make sense for the Big Ten's selection. An Oregon vs. Iowa game would have a lot of fans in attendance on both sides.

We'll know more in a week, but Oregon fans could be heading south.
