SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Arizona will face Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl after being blown out by Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship game.
The Wildcats (10-3) appeared to be in danger of missing out on one of the four New Year's bowls after losing 51-13 to the second-ranked Ducks in Friday's Pac-12 title game.
Arizona was ranked No. 11 in the College Football Playoff rankings despite the loss and will face the Broncos (11-2), the Mountain West Conference champions who are making their third trip to the Fiesta Bowl.
Boise State ended its season with a 28-14 win over Fresno State. The Broncos qualified for a major bowl as the top-ranked champion from a group of five conferences without New Year's bowl contracts.
The Fiesta Bowl is Dec. 31 at University of Phoenix Stadium.
