In the final BCS Bowl Game before the National Championship Game on January 7, tonight's Fiesta Bowl takes center stage with the Kansas State Wildcats playing the Oregon Ducks. In a game that was nearly the National Championship Game, the Ducks and Wildcats will have to settle for playing in Arizona instead of Miami this year.
The game features five players who have been invited to the 2013 Senior Bowl, and ten prospects for April's Draft. Dan Kadar, over on Mocking the Draft, breaks down all the players to watch during the Fiesta Bowl.
The game also features one of the more interesting coaching prospects for 2013. Oregon's Chip Kelly is once again one of the hot NFL coaching prospects this offseason. There are several teams, led by the Cleveland Browns, who are reportedly in Arizona to meet with Kelly as soon as this game is over. Kelly has been a constant coaching candidate since getting to Oregon, but has never wanted to make the jump to the pros. This year, however, Kelly reportedly has assurances that, if he were to leave, his assistants would remain at the school and take over the program. That could be enough for Kelly make the jump.
Enjoy the game!
