5 coaches who could replace Willie Taggart

Willie Taggart

Multiple reports have indicated that Florida State will pursue Oregon's Willie Taggart to replace Jimbo Fisher - including FSU's research on Taggart and other potential candidates - but the first official steps in the hiring process weren't set in motion until this week. "I'm sure our fans will enjoy a trip to Las Vegas to watch the Ducks, and we will continue to have our team prepared and focused for such a strong opponent".

OR has a fun offense, led by quarterback Justin Herbert.

Taggart has a new contract offer from OR that will pay more than $20 million over the next five years. The Pac-12 is only slightly better at 56.6 percent, and the SEC leads the nation in bowl game wins at 64.4 percent. UO has proven to be one of the country's most consistent winning bets and has only missed bowls twice since 1994, which was well before the births of most of the players who'll participate in this game.

This will be Oregon's third appearance in the Las Vegas Bowl. It beat Fresno State to win the Mountain West title.

Boise State and OR have faced off twice, with the Broncos coming out on top both times.

OR and Boise State have met twice on the field, with Boise State winning both games - 37-32 in Eugene in 2008 and 19-8 in Boise in 2009.
