At the final press conference before his Oregon team faces Auburn Monday night for the college football championship, Ducks coach Chip Kelly made it clear that his team had a vision, and was focused.

"We stand for three things: Playing fast, playing hard, and finishing," said Kelly. "Our vision is not about a ring, it's not about a trophy, it's about playing the game."

Kelly admitted the first quarter of the game was likely to be a "feeling out process" for both teams, but for the Oregon squad it would mostly be about "getting a feel for what did (Auburn) implement for us."

Turnovers could b the decisive difference in the game, the coach said. "Whoever wins that turnover battle is probably going to win the game."

After his morning press conference, Kelly and the Ducks had one more practice at a local high school, then the team was headed to University of Phoenix Stadium to see the field where they'll play on Monday.

Kelly downplayed the visit to the stadium, saying "it's just about what's the field like, what are your cleats like...a photo opportunity."
