EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Any jitters that the Oregon Ducks may have
had about playing on a BCS stage were iced last season when they
went to the Rose Bowl. There's no such emotion this time around,
The No. 2 Ducks wrapped up a three-day practice session on
Monday after getting most of last week off and taking final exams -
part of the team's businesslike approach to preparation for the
national championship game against No. 1 Auburn on Jan. 10.
Oregon resumes practice on Friday, when the team will start
game-planning for the Tigers. The Ducks will practice for a few
days before breaking for the holiday, and they're scheduled to
leave for Glendale, Ariz., on Jan. 2.
