Oregon held its final practice in Eugene prior to the Rose Bowl...The Ducks will reconvene on Dec. 25 in Los Angeles to resume preparations for their New Year's Day matchup with Florida State...

So there was no hitting, although plays were run closer to full-speed, as opposed to the "no-sweat Thursday" mantra when a game is two days away.
