SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Oregon will meet Kansas State in another marquee matchup at the Fiesta Bowl.

Still in the BCS championship chase just two weeks ago, the fifth-ranked Ducks and seventh-ranked Wildcats will play in the Jan. 3 game at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

Oregon (11-1) has a Heisman Trophy contender in running back Kenjon Barner and one of the nation's most dynamic offenses.

Kansas State (11-1) has a Heisman hopeful of its own in quarterback Collin Klein and a stingy defense.

Once the top two teams in the BCS standings, the Ducks and Wildcats dropped to fourth and fifth after losing on the same day in November.

Oklahoma State beat Stanford in overtime win last year's Fiesta Bowl and this one has a chance to be even better.
