Hopeful to play in Fiesta Bowl Coach Mario Cristobal said the team is hopeful that Verdell (hand) will be able to play in the Fiesta Bowl on Saturday against Iowa State, Matt Prehm of 247sports.com reports.
Impact Verdell was held out of the Pac-12 Championship game on Dec. 18 due to a hand injury. Oregon is usually very tight lipped on injuries, so we'll have to wait until closer to game-time to find out if the junior will indeed be back to lead the Ducks backfield in Glendale. Travis Dye and Cyrus Habibi-Likio would see extended run again if Verdell is unable to go.
