Oregon will wear green matte helmets with green facemasks for the Rose Bowl Game on New Year's Day, the Ducks revealed Friday.

No. 2 Oregon will face No. 3 Florida State, with the winner advancing to the inaugural College Football Playoff National Championship to play the winner of No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Ohio State Jan. 12 in Arlington, Texas.

The Ducks will go all-green with their Rose Bowl uniforms, which Nike unveiled earlier this week.

Oregon went 12-1 this season to win the Pac-12 and earn its Playoff spot. Quarterback Marcus Mariota won the Heisman Trophy earlier this month, beating out Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon and Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper.
