The Flames are looking to keep their undefeated season alive, and are arguably playing in the most prestigious game in program history with their Fiesta Bowl appearance. The Ducks, on the other hand, could see some players who are NFL-bound sit this one out. Oregon is the better team on paper and if Bo Nix plays, it might be worth taking the Ducks. For now, Liberty getting two touchdowns is hard to pass up.
