NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Oregon’s final ranking in both the AP and Coaches Poll. After the embarrassment was over and the dust had settled (which mainly came from Notre Dame fans sprinting out of the stadium in the third quarter), Alabama stood in the No. 1 position for the second straight year while the Oregon Ducks, who took care of the Kansas State Wildcats in the 2013 Tostito’s Fiesta Bowl, finished the year at No. 2.
NWSportsBeat senior writer Matt Larkin explains why the road ahead isn’t easy for the Oregon State Beavers football team and coach Mike Riley. The worst part is that Oregon State has already lost two of its most winnable games – including a home game against the FCS’ Sacramento State and a home tilt against UCLA.
