Both Beavers and Ducks go bowling in post-season

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — No. 10 Oregon will square off against Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30.

Oregon (10-2) won its first eight games and was in the national title discussion before losing at Stanford on Nov. 7. The Ducks also got blown out at Arizona before rallying to beat rival Oregon State 36-35.

Texas (8-4) will play in San Antonio for the second straight year, having beaten Oregon State 31-27 a year ago.

The Longhorns had a chance to win the Big 12 title and play in a BCS bowl game, but the Longhorns lost to Baylor 30-10 Saturday in the regular season finale.

Texas opened league play with six straight wins before losing two of its last three.


HONOLULU (AP) — Boise State will play Oregon State in the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve.

Boise State went 8-4 this season under coach Chris Petersen, who was hired last week as head coach of Washington. Assistant head coach Bob Gregory, who has been with the Broncos for five seasons, was named interim coach for the bowl game.

The Broncos are making their 12th straight bowl appearance, and second in the Hawaii Bowl. In 2007, the Broncos fell to 41-38 to East Carolina in Honolulu.

The Beavers went 6-6 but dropped their final five games. It will be the team's eighth bowl appearance under coach Mike Riley, who is 5-2 in the postseason.

It will be the eighth overall meeting between the two teams. Oregon State leads the series 4-3.
