The No. 15 Oregon Ducks will close the first year of the Dan Lanning era in San Diego when facing the North Carolina Tar Heels in the 2022 Holiday Bowl. The game will take place on Wednesday, December 28 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

Like several teams across the country, Oregon will have a handful of players who will be opting out of the bowl game for various reasons. The most notable player is cornerback Christian Gonzalez, who is focusing his attention on the NFL Draft. The First Team All-Pac-12 defensive back is being projected as a potential first-round pick this April.

Here is the latest list of players for the Oregon Ducks that won’t be participating in the 2022 Holiday Bowl.
