How to Watch the Las Vegas Bowl: Boise State vs

After debating whether or not to play one more college game in his hometown, senior offensive tackle Tyrell Crosby announced Friday morning that he will suit up Saturday afternoon to face Boise State wearing No. 58 in honor of the number of victims who were killed at an outdoor music festival in Las Vegas on October 1.

On the ground, Oregon's star running back, Royce Freeman, decided not to play in the Bowl and focus instead on getting set for the NFL Draft.

You can watch OR play Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl on ABC live.

Odds: Oregon opened as a five-point favorite.

The Oregon Ducks mascot, Puddles, performs during a college football game between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Oregon Ducks on September 9, 2017, at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, OR. With Boise getting the ball back, it seemed as if they were ready to punch OR right back in the mouth with a score.

Facebook makes it easier to ignore those annoying friends with 'Snooze'
Facebook added a new feature that allows users to " Snooze " friends or groups on the social media site on Friday, Dec. 13, 2017. Facebook has announced some changes and the most important of them is probably the new " Snooze " button.

The Ducks go 3-and-out again on offense. Troy Dye and Jalen Jelks are a force from the middle of the line and Arrion Springs leads the Pac-12 in protecting his side of the field.

The Ducks wrap up against Boise State in a game that also serves as the starting point for Mario Cristobal's tenure as UO coach. It could show they style of play he will have for this team next season.

"For him to come back and play in this game is huge for our offense", OR quarterback Justin Herbert said. I expect Stanford to do the same to Kenny Hill and TCU.

“(Freeman) is one of the best running backs in the nation — big, physical, fast, ” Boise State sophomore safety DeAndre Pierce said.

OR quarterback Justin Herbert already has some buzz as possibly being a Heisman Trophy candidate next season. Boise State will have trouble keeping up. This season, Herbert threw for 13 touchdowns along with over 1,700 yards passing. The Broncos were aided by a holding penalty on OR on 3rd-and-8 at the Boise 18-yard line. Rypien has at least two touchdown passes in four of his last six games. Rypien will find his rhythm with stud receiver Cedrick Wilson and the physical Broncos will give the Ducks all they can handle.
