In the Las Vegas Bowl, Boise State's defense held Oregon to 47 yards rushing, forced four turnovers, sacked QB Justin Herbert four times and kept the Ducks from crossing midfield until midway through the third quarter. The Broncos' offense churned out 481 yards that included respectable rushing numbers and nearly 37 minutes of possession time, and suffered only one sack. Not to mention the Ducks' 10 penalties for 95 yards and eight punts, other factors that contributed to a 38-28 loss.
It's been quite a journey for Oregon and its seniors in the past four seasons. There was the high of January 2015, winning the Rose Bowl and playing Ohio State for the national championship behind Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota. There was the drama-filled 2015 season, with a 62-20 blowout loss to Utah at home, a huge win at eventual Pac-12 champ Stanford and then the infamous Alamo Bowl when QB Vernon Adams went out injured and the Ducks blew a 31-0 lead and lost.
After an up-and-down season, it almost feels like a big deal for the Oregon Ducks to be playing in the Las Vegas Bowl, going for an eighth win. The "what if?" crowd might look at QB Justin Herbert's 5 1/2-game absence with a broken collarbone as the reason the Ducks lost four games without him, and the season could have gone much better with him. Not necessarily, as the Ducks were outscored 151-34 in the four games; they might have beaten UCLA, but maybe not the others.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
