Oregon will Take on (25) Boise State in Las Vegas Bowl

Oregon and (25) Boise State will square off in the Las Vegas Bowl, it was announced Sunday.

EUGENE -- The Ducks are putting all their chips on Willie Taggart staying in Eugene as they've tried to lock him up long term. For now, Taggart will be the team's coach when they head to Las Vegas to take on the 25th-ranked Mountain West champion Boise State Broncos.

It was announced Sunday that the Ducks (7-5) and Broncos (10-3) would meet on December 16 for the Las Vegas Bowl. While Oregon is happy to just be playing in a bowl game, this selection actually hurts next year's recruiting. 

Originally, most of Oregon's 2018 commits were all going to be meeting in Eugene on December 15. With preparation and travel for bowl games, this can no longer happen. It remains to be seen how much this and Willie Taggart's uncertain future impact a recruiting class, which is currently tops in the country. The team has already lost the commitment of one four-star recruit over the uncertainty.

One thing is certain: the Ducks and Broncos will meet in Las Vegas for the first time since the infamous 2009 postgame incident between the two teams which saw LaGarrette Blount punch a Boise State player in the face, prompting a suspension.

Boise State beat Oregon in 2008 and 2009, the only two times these teams have met.

Kick off is set for 12:30 PT.
