There are still several high profile bowl matchups left before the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Alabama Crimson Tide square off in the BCS National Championship game on Monday. On Thursday night, the Oregon Ducks and Kansas State Wildcats meet in a battle of high-powered offenses in the Fiesta Bowl at 8:30 p.m. ET.
The No. 4 Ducks are scoring 50.8 points per game on the season and averaging 550.1 yards of offense. The No. 5 Wildcats led by Heisman candidate Collin Klein are not quite as prolific, but are putting up 40.7 points per game.
Heisman winner Johnny Manziel will be in action on Friday night when the No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies face the No. 11 Oklahoma Sooners in the Cotton Bowl at 8 p.m. ET. Manziel became the first freshman Heisman winner ever thanks to his dynamic season passing and rushing for the Aggies.
On Saturday, the Mississippi Rebels will face the Pittsburgh Panthers in the BBVA Compass Bowl at 1 p.m. ET. The final bowl game before the national title game is the GoDaddy.com Bowl on Sunday between the No. 25 Kent State Golden Flashes and Arkansas State Red Wolves.
