On New Year's Day It's Roses for the Ducks

Florida State is the Oregon opponent at the Grandfather of all Bowls, the Rose Bowl. It’s a classic matchup for Garnet and Gold and Green and Yellow, the schools from Tallahassee and Eugene.

The Seminoles concluded an undefeated regular season and carry a 29-game win streak and three straight ACC Championship into Pasadena. Seven victories were by six points or fewer. Their ACC Championship victory over Georgia Tech was 37-35. FSU is coached by Jimbo Fisher.

If you are in Pasadena or watching on television, Duck fans can feel pride as their band performs in the Rose Parade and the game where the Ducks fulfill their #2 national rating.
