Brace yourselves for the never-ending Civil War in college football...
Rivalries in any sport make the game more interesting. It is funny that with so many competing teams, there are colloquial terms invented to spare the real, heated and long-standing rivalry. In collegiate football, there is the so-called “Civil War”. This is not the real war that is part of the history, this is all about the rivalry between two college football teams that are both located near Portland, Oregon. This is between the University of Oregon and Oregon State University. The first with its Oregon Ducks as its athletic team and the other one is the Oregon State Beavers.
The Civil War between these two Oregon colleges started in 1894 and their rivalry is the 7th oldest in the United States in terms of college football. Their first meeting went to the Beavers, which was known back then as the Oregon Agricultural College. These two met for 115 times prior to the 2012 college football season. The Civil War game is alternated between the stadium of the Beavers in Corvallis, Portland and in Eugene, Oregon for the Ducks. Between this rivalry, the Ducks has won the most with 59 wins against 46 wins for the Beavers with ties.
The term Civil War was used in the late 1920s (particularly in the 1929) and it was coined the Oregon Classic or the State Championship game. The game history between the two is pretty much equal in terms or winning streak in which both teams garnered 8 straight wins, several zeroes and the mediocre teams in the 1983 that ended up in a dismaying 0 – 0 score (this game is known as the Toilet Bowl). The Ducks hold the most lopsided victory in which they scored 44 points against 0 for the Beavers. The year 2000 was the first and so far, the only time that these two Oregon-based college football teams placed in the top 10 football teams ranked by the by the experts in the country.
As of now, the Ducks are enjoying their 4 game winning streak in this Civil War since 2008 and seeking to repeat it in the 2012 season. Every game is held during the last regular season week of play for these two teams in which the winner is awarded with the “Platypus Trophy”.
