Oregon Football: The State of the Program After the 2013 Season

With plenty of stars returning next season, the Oregon Ducks will likely enter the season as the Pac-12 favorite.

After an 8-0 start, which led to a No. 2 ranking in the BCS standings, the Ducks struggled to a 2-2 finish to close out the regular season. Once a program reaches the point where a 10-2 season is viewed as somewhat of a disappointment, it has officially arrived. 

Heading into their Alamo Bowl matchup with the Texas Longhorns, that is where the No. 10 Oregon Ducks find themselves.

Despite a sixth consecutive season with at least 10 wins, the 2013 season has left many of the Oregon faithful with a bad taste in their mouth. Not even the disappointing 2-2 finish to the regular season should overshadow another outstanding season from one of the country's best programs.

A win against the Longhorns would be a nice way for Oregon to cap off another remarkable season. With a win in the Alamo Bowl, the Ducks would secure a fourth straight season of at least 11 wins and another top-10 finish.

With a roster full of young and talented players and the biggest news, the return of quarterback Marcus Mariota and center Hroniss Grasu, the Ducks are primed to have another outstanding season in 2014.
