Good Luck Ducks, Week 14: The 123rd Civil War

Oregon takes on their upstart rival down the road. 

After some clunkers, this could be an exciting game for fans of both of the big college teams in the state of Oregon. The Ducks take on the Beavers this afternoon in the annual conclusion to the conference schedule, with both programs establishing that they are on the rise this year.

The Ducks will try to wipe away any lingering bitterness from a rough game last week and establish some momentum heading into the Pac-12 Championship next week. Meanwhile, Oregon State looks to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2013. While Oregon improved on both sides of the ball this year, the Beavers gains were mostly felt on offense under new head coach (and former Beaver QB) Jonathan Smith.

The Civil War is usually when the trick plays really start coming out, and it should be a fun one today - at least initially. The hope on this side is that Oregon's playbook will open up considerably today, as some tendencies to be conservative this year have not always gone the way of the Ducks. Turnovers were a huge problem against Arizona State as well, which was very unexpected. Look for those things to get cleaned up this week.

  • Luke Skyywalker's Crystal Balls say: It's not clear that 2 Live Crew got into a lot of rap beefs in their day, as their rivalry was more with the music industry and those that would try to censor them. Luke does go after the haters in his football rivalry, though. You have the right to listen to whoever you want to

Game time is 1:00 PST on the Pac-12 Network. Ted Robinson, Yogi Roth and Jill Savage are on the call. Go Ducks!

  1. Go Ducks! Any "OSU" team is automatically bad and should be beaten.
