Boy, is it good for the Civil War to mean something again.
In 2008 and 2009, the rivalry game between Oregon and Oregon State was a semifinal for the Rose Bowl, but with the Beavers' irrelevancy in the Pac-12 over the past two years, it became just a game for bragging rights.

Despite their title hopes being dashed, the Beavers have been quite a success story this season. However, with only two marquee wins coming against UCLA and Wisconsin, Oregon State has been called overrated by multiple members of the media.
The following slides will detail how Oregon will expose its in-state foes on Saturday.
