Oregon Headed to San Antonio to Face No. 16 Oklahoma in the Alamo Bowl

The Ducks will head to Texas for their bowl game.

Selection Sunday is upon on us, and the College Football Playoff is set with No. 1 Alabama set to face No. 4 Cincinnati and No. 2 Michigan set to face No. 3 Georgia.

Meanwhile, fanbases across the rest of the country are making travel plans to following their teams to their postseason bowls, and now we know who and where the Ducks will play. 

No. 14 Oregon (10-3, 7-2 Pac-12) will face No. 16 Oklahoma (10-2, 7-2) in the 2021 Valero Alamo Bowl.

Oregon is coming off a loss to Utah in the Pac-12 championship, while Oklahoma is reeling from a 37-33 loss to Oklahoma State before USC hired away their then head coach Lincoln Riley, who took numerous assistants with him to Los Angeles.

With Oklahoma in the coaching carousel, the program has since named Bob Stoops the interim head coach. 

Following Riley's departure from Norman, numerous Oklahoma commits have flipped their commitments to USC and players including quarterback Spencer Rattler and wide receiver Jadon Hasselwood have entered the transfer portal. 

Duck fans are still waiting to see who their head coach will be in this game, with Mario Cristobal reportedly in talks with Miami to be their next head coach and Oregon reportedly offering him a new contract.
