Just hours away from the kickoff of the Alamo Bowl between Oklahoma and Oregon football, everyone is wondering what kind of game we’re going to see.
Will we see what everyone was expecting as a potential playoff matchup with two talented teams giving everyone a great game or will it be an energy-less matchup of two teams disappointed to be playing in the Alamo Bowl?
For Oregon, energy won’t be lacking for one reason: there are a number of young players fighting for playing time in 2022.

Future flashing for Oregon football at multiple positions
On the offensive side of the ball, you have guys like Troy Franklin, Kris Hutson, Terrance Ferguson, Moliki Matavao, Byron Cardwell, Dont’e Thornton, and potentially Ty Thompson who will be seeing the field and who will all have a big hand in the future of the program.
On defense, you have recently-transitioned Jackson Powers-Johnson, Kristian Williams, Bradyn Swinson, Jeffrey Bassa, Dontae Manning, Trikweze Bridges, Avante Dickerson, and Daymon David.
There are a ton of talented underclassmen taking the field for Oregon and it’s going to act like a playing time tryout. Dan Lanning will be watching and scouting his future roster. He’ll be taking notes of guys who step up and those who break out.
