Poll:
Do you think the Ducks will win the Fiesta Bowl?

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Thousands of Oregon Ducks fans are sight-seeing in Arizona, as the team gets out the kinks during their final practice of the season before Thursday’s Fiesta Bowl.

John Marston is a native Oregonian who opened up a Ducks-themed bar in Phoenix six years ago. Now that the Fiesta Bowl has brought Ducks fans to his new hometown, he’s enjoying a surge in business this week. The Well Bar is located in the heart of the desert.

“I just made it into a little dive bar, an Oregon bar, where Oregon fans could come and watch football on Saturdays,” Marston said. “It's like a little piece of home... like a cooler, exactly, that's exactly what it is."

The Ducks face Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl Thursday night. The game starts at 6:30 p.m., at the University of Phoenix in Glendale, Ariz. It will also be broadcast live on ESPN.
