After the home team won nine consecutive times in the annual "Civil War" game between Oregon and Oregon State, the Beavers beat the Ducks in Eugene in 2007 for their second consecutive win in the series. It took overtime for the Beavers to beat the Ducks, who were completely decimated by injuries at the end of the season.
The Beavers don't care how it might come; they would take a win over the Ducks any way they could get it. After winning the matchup in 2006 and 2007, the Beavers had their Rose Bowl dreams shattered by the Ducks in 2008 and 2009. The Ducks have beaten the Beavers in five straight matchups, with the last three coming by an average of 23 points.
This season, both teams enter the game desperately wanting a win to help salvage their seasons.
The Beavers started the season with a shocking home loss to FCS Eastern Washington, but they responded with six consecutive wins. Since the 6-1 start, the Beavers have lost four straight, including a disastrous 69-27 home loss to Washington last week.
The Ducks started out 8-0 and were ranked No. 2 in the nation before a loss to Stanford derailed their season. After a shocking 42-16 loss to Arizona last week, the No. 13 Ducks have lost two of their last three games and need to make a statement if they have any hope of extending their run of BCS bowl appearances.
Oregon leads the all-time series between the two programs 60-46-10
