Both teams started the season with similar goals and that has remained true as the season has progressed.
OR went 3-and-out on its first possession. "Obviously excited coming off the (Mountain West) championship game, knowing we have another opportunity, another part of our goal to achieve, and to do it against an opponent like OR is something our guys are going to be looking forward to".
So what side do you need to be all over in Saturday's Las Vegas Bowl?
One of the most memorable meetings between the two programs came in 2009, when former Ducks running back LeGarrette Blount, who now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles, punched Boise State's Byron Hunt and sparked an all-out brawl. The Boise State Broncos took down the Oklahoma Sooners in overtime, 43-42. These teams are the Oregon Ducks and the Boise State Broncos.

It will be the first game for Mario Cristobal as head coach of the Ducks.
The line will not block for senior running back Royce Freeman, who chose to sit out the game in preparation for the draft. However, Herbert's job this Saturday might be more hard due to the absence of star running back Royce Freeman. As for Cristobal's first game, there are a lot of questions surrounding the Ducks right now, but perhaps none bigger than the status of Royce Freeman.
The Broncos will have to stop the Oregon Quarterback extraordinar, Justin Herbert, who battled back from an injury and could possibly be a Heisman favorite for next season. Tyree Robinson would pick off Brett Rypien in the end zone and proceed to take the ball 100 yards to the house. Boise's drive started at the OR 32-yard line after Jabril Frazier recovered a fumble by Tony Brooks-James. Defensively, Boise State is allowing 22.5 points and 336.7 yards per game. Rypien will find his rhythm with stud receiver Cedrick Wilson and the physical Broncos will give the Ducks all they can handle. The Broncos were aided by a holding penalty on OR on 3rd-and-8 at the Boise 18-yard line.
Boise State's last 19 senior classes have won at least one conference championship during their college careers, with 11 winning three or more.
