The University of Oregon will host its first bowl game since 2000.
The Ducks are in the midst of a five-year stretch in which they have gone 10-3 and reached the College Football Playoff title game.
They also have won the Pac-12 title.
But in 2019, the team is in the final year of its contract, and there is some pressure to perform.
So how can the Ducks stay on the same path?
They have to overcome the issues that have plagued them the last few years.
They are dealing with injuries to key players and coaching staff members.
The football program has been mired in scandal and turnover since 2014.
But the Ducks are looking ahead to a bowl game in 2019 that will provide the opportunity to finish their schedule and reach a bowl that would take the team to the national championship game.
The next big question is whether Oregon State can turn things around quickly enough to win a bowl against a team like Alabama in 2019.
The first bowl matchup in 2019 will be in the Rose Bowl against the defending national champion Florida State Seminoles.
The Ducks will likely lose to the Seminoles in their first meeting in the Fiesta Bowl, which has a neutral site.
The second matchup will be at home against the Florida Gators, a team that has won three consecutive games and has been ranked in the top 10 for several weeks.
The third matchup will likely be at the Rose Garden against Notre Dame, a school that is ranked in both the AP Top 25 and the Coaches Poll.
The fourth matchup will take place in the Cotton Bowl against Clemson.
The Tigers are ranked No. 1 in both Coaches and AP Polls.
The final bowl matchup will most likely be in Athens against Texas Tech.
The Sooners have won seven straight games against the Red Raiders and have won three straight at home, including a 29-10 victory last season.
Texas Tech has won nine straight against the Sooners.
The Longhorns are coming off a win over Alabama and a loss to Oregon State in the Chick-fil-A Bowl last season and will be looking to build on that momentum this season.
The last matchup in the 2019 season will be a home game against Alabama, the reigning national champion.
The Red Raiders will likely have a chance to win the national title in 2019 against the Crimson Tide.
But the Red Raider team that beat the Ducks in the last meeting in 2021 will be coming off the worst year in the program’s history.
Oregon State is scheduled to play two bowl games this season, the Rose and Cotton.
The Rose Bowl is the most common choice, with three teams in the AP poll coming away with the No. 2 seed.
The Cotton Bowl is not as common, with two teams in both polls coming away in the fourth spot.
The Sun Bowl is usually the least common, and four teams in two polls are in a tie for the final spot.
A bowl game can be one of the biggest wins of a season, and it is expected that the Ducks will be the favorite.
Oregon State will be hoping to put a good season together after a slow start to the year.
It will be interesting to see if Oregon State has enough depth to make it into a bowl match-up.
The loss of defensive coordinator Mike Leach to the NFL this offseason has limited the depth of the Ducks’ secondary, and the Ducks may have to rely on some veteran players who are familiar with the league.
There is no guarantee that Oregon State could have a top-10 defense in 2019 and would be in a position to make a run at the top spot.
Oregon is one of only five schools to win two consecutive games in 2019 in the Orange Bowl.
The other schools are Texas Tech, Texas A&M, UCLA and TCU.
The game will take on a different feel in 2019 than it did last season, when Oregon State had to play at home and had to come back from a late deficit.
The weather could be a factor this year, and Oregon State won’t be the only team in the Pac 12 that has to play a road game.
Oregon will have a tough schedule.
The Bears have a home date against Michigan State in November, then a road date against Stanford.
Oregon has to go at home to host Oklahoma State, which is ranked No
