Both Oregon and South Florida flirted with the top of the BCS standings at various points this season. Three game losing skids cost each a ton of momentum and positioning however, and as a reSUlt, they'll meet in the SUn Bowl in El Paso on New Year's Eve, with USF a 6 & point favorite. If past trends in this game provide any indication, it's advantage Oregon, since underdogs are on an incredible run of 10 & 1 & 1 ATS in the L12 SUn Bowls, and the Pac 10 is 7 & 3 & 1 ATS in the L11. The Ducks will be looking to snap a 4 game bowl losing streak, but they are 4 & 1 ATS in their L5 postseason games as an underdog. They played the nation's toughest schedule, playing eight bowl teams in '07 going 5 & 3 straight up AND ATS in those. The Bulls own big wins over West Virginia and UCF, and are 20 & 10 ATS in non & conference play under HC Jim Leavitt.
