Just an hour after the 21st Annual Valero Alamo Bowl extended an invitation to the No. 10 Oregon Ducks ( 10-2 ), quarterback Marcus Mariota and center Hroniss Grasu spoke via teleconference about the late December match-up with ( 8-4 ) Texas.
Both Mariota and Grasu spent nearly 20 minutes with local reporters Sunday evening talking about the Ducks opportunity to play in San Antonio against the Longhorns and possibly extend their bowl winning streak to three straight.
The Ducks will step away from practice this next week to allow the student athletes to concentrate on finals and will return to bowl workouts next weekend when the Ducks resume preparations for Texas.
The 21st Valero Alamo Bowl is scheduled for Monday December 30th in San Antonio. Kick-off is scheduled for 3:45 pm pacific time / 5:45 pm central time and will be televised by ESPN.
