Fiesta Bowl Fail
It was a disappointing loss for the Ducks on Saturday as the Iowa State Cyclones dominated Oregon. Head Coach Mario Cristobal made some interesting choices as he moved starting qb Tyler Shough out and placed senior Anthony Brown behind center. Brown on one possession fumbled the ball and it was recovered by Iowa State. Shough also had a turnover. Final Fiesta Bowl: Score 34-17.
