EUGENE, OR (KPTV) - Coming off a Pac-12 Championship win, the number six Oregon Ducks are headed to the Rose Bowl. The Ducks are set for a rematch against number 8 Wisconsin.
The last time these two schools met at the Rose Bowl was in 2012 and Wisconsin’s Quarterback was Russell Wilson. The Ducks won that game 45 to 38.
Now, the hype is growing, and Duck fans are getting ready to head to Pasadena. There is a lot of excitement across the Northwest. Official gear for the Rose Bowl hasn’t arrived at the Portland Duck store but is expected later this week.
“We are super excited that they are going to the Rose Bowl,” Marilyn Davis said.
“It was exciting, you know, I kind of thought they would win,” Dick Moffett said. “They played Auburn really well, they had some great games against Washington, and so, I thought this could happen. It was exciting, and it was a great game.”
For those looking to head south to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl, expect to spend a little bit of money to get there.
