With just two games left in the regular season, the University of Oregon’s bowl game options are still wide open.
After losing to Stanford, it looked like the Ducks would be ringing in the New Year in Miami or New Orleans. Then USC toppled the Cardinal, putting Pasadena—and the 100th playing of the Rose Bowl—firmly back on the UO’s list of potential January destinations.
In addition to the four BCS bowl games and the last-ever BCS championship game, four states host bowl games with Pac-12 ties, covering a 1,700-mile stretch of America from San Francisco to San Antonio. Pac-12 football fans will spend this holiday season enjoying the warmth and beaches of Southern California, the U.S. history in San Antonio, the culture in El Paso, the bright lights of Las Vegas, the architecture of San Francisco, or the dramatic scenery of New Mexico.
While most bowl-eligible teams won’t officially know which bowl game they’re going to until selection Sunday on December 8, what is a certainty is that whichever bowl game the Ducks go to, the University of Oregon Alumni Association will put together a travel package to help you enjoy the experience in style.
The UOAA’s bowl game travel packages traditionally include hotel accommodation, transfers, and a fan fest, and, depending on demand and the bowl game in question, chartered flights from Eugene. In addition to providing Duck fans with an opportunity to travel together, the bowl travel packages offer non-stop excitement and activity for the thousands of Ducks who participate. The cheerleaders and Oregon Marching Band make regular appearances, guest speakers such as ESPN sportscaster and UO alumnus Neil Everett ’84 have been known to stop by, and a recent fan fest concert was headlined by Sebastian Bach, former singer for multiplatinum-selling rock band Skid Row.
Details will be announced once the University of Oregon’s bowl destination is known. Stay tuned to your inbox and uoalumni.com for details.
