The best postseason matchup besides the BCS title game certainly appears to be the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3, when Collin Klein and the seventh-ranked Wildcats will try to keep up with the high-powered offense of the No. 5 Ducks.
Oregon, which is facing the Wildcats for the first time, is making an eighth consecutive bowl appearance and fourth straight in a BCS game after winning last season's Rose Bowl.

The Fat Guy Hustle Award - Jake Fisher: He scored a touchdown. Wait, let me rephrase: he chased De'Anthony Thomas fifty yards down the field, arrived at the endzone at roughly the same time, and was there to fall on the ball after DAT fumbled at the 1-yard line. That's true fat guy hustle.
