Every Oregon appearance from here on out will be scrutinized for its BCS implications including the Ducks' game with Colorado in Eugene, part of "Showdown Saturday" on Pac-12 Networks (12 p.m. PT).

Colorado meanwhile has more modest goals from here on out: pride, and building a culture for the future.
