For Iowa football, it’s hard to understand what a big deal it will be to play the Oregon Ducks at the Fiesta Bowl on Saturday

It’s more routine for the Ducks, though winning the Pac-12 championship and playing in a major bowl game should always be considered an achievement It’s old hat for the ducks compared to Iowa state football, which is taking place for the first time ever in the main bowl look

The Cyclones played the Peach Bowl a long time ago, but that was before it was part of what was called New Year’s Six. And this is the first time Iowa State Football has been in a bowl game on or after New Years Day plays

Iowa State came within a few points of winning the Big 12 championship, but this season beat Texas and Oklahoma Oregon got into the Pac-12 title game with a 3-2 record, shocking the undefeated USC Trojans by forcing three turnovers

Now both teams have the chance to put an exclamation mark on their season in Glendale Here are three bold predictions for the Cyclones and Ducks in the Fiesta Bowl

Breece Hall was an exception for football in the US state of Iowa this season He scored 19 touchdowns averaging 59 yards per try when he was 1Gaining 436 yards on the ground He will be the key in this game for the Cyclones

The Ducks have an athletic defense, but they only kept one opponent under 20 points, allowing three teams to score 29 points or more. Oregon also allowed 42 yards per rushing attempt and more than two rushing touchdowns per game

Hall is one of the best players in the Cyclones, but he’s played three games without 100 yards. If the state of Iowa is to find its groove in the Fiesta Bowl, Hall had to find his own and behind an underrated offensive line I think he’ll be over 100 and hits twice
