Oregon State Congratulates Heisman Trophy Winner Marcus Mariota with Classy Ad

Even in a rivalry, it's important to give respect where it's due.

Oregon's Marcus Mariota won the 2014 Heisman Trophy on Saturday night after putting up ridiculous numbers in the regular season. He was so good that even one of his biggest rivals had to give him some respect.

Oregon State suffered a 47-19 defeat to Mariota and Oregon in its regular-season final on Nov. 29. That loss gave the Beavers a 5-7 record, meaning they would not be playing in a bowl game.

Even though Mariota ended their season, the Beavers paid tribute to the Ducks quarterback with a classy ad.

Oregon and Oregon State are rivals on the field, but there is plenty of mutual respect between the two schools, as this ad clearly demonstrates.
