Even though the Oregon Ducks won their final regular season game, the injury concern surrounding Justin Herbert put a damper on the mood. With the superstar quarterback possibly entering the 2019 NFL Draft, this upcoming bowl game could be his final appearance.
Herbert injured his shoulder against Oregon State, as his status is unclear right now. The Ducks own a 8-4 record, which features losses to Stanford, Washington State, Arizona and Utah.
College football experts from various sites have revealed their bowl projections for this season. Let's take a look at what they’re saying for Oregon.
Jerry Palm of CBS Sports placed Oregon in the Holiday Bowl against Northwestern. The Wildcats face Ohio State this upcoming weekend in the Big Ten Championship.
College Football News also has the Ducks in the Holiday Bowl, but against Iowa.
Eric Single of Sports Illustrated has the same exact prediction as College Football News, which features the Ducks and the Hawkeyes in the Holiday Bowl.
These projections all have Oregon playing in San Diego next month. However, the Ducks opponent would depend on the conference championships on Saturday.
