EUGENE, Ore. – The Oregon Ducks are just a few days away from taking on Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl.

The team arrived in Las Vegas Monday night and Tuesday they spoke with the media.

Right now, the Ducks are 7-5 on the season while Boise State is 10-3.

The Ducks have undergone a big shift recently with the loss of Head Coach Willie Taggart and the promotion of new Head Coach Mario Cristobal.

Cristobal says the transition might actually work in their favor.

“Things happen in life and for us particularly last week, we went through a transition and I know I’ve said it before and I don't want to sound like a broken record, but those types of situations and circumstances can have a way of galvanizing and strengthening a program and individual group or team and I see that happening with us,” he said.

The Ducks take on the Broncos on ABC, Channel 2, on Saturday. Kickoff is at 12:30 p.m.
