Not sure what this Oregon State cheering section is doing on the photo deck with me, but they are only adding to my enjoyment.â John Locanthi (@HuekahJohn) November 24, 2012
Barner one of the last out of the Oregon locker room and onto the Reser field. Seems to be walking OK.â Adam Jude (@A_Jude) November 24, 2012
Oregon just reached Vicksburg in the Civil War ... moving toward Atlanta.â BCS Guru (@BCSGuru) November 24, 2012
I had a few people this last week tell me the beavs had a chance. I should of bet on the over. #goducksâ Preston Orr (@NEPres) November 24, 2012
Oregon State is the most #B1G team in the Pac-12â John Locanthi (@HuekahJohn) November 24, 2012
Sean Mannion completes his second pass to Brandin Jackson of the game. That would've been a good play if Jackson played for the Beavers.
Bennett is tagged into the game to loud cheers from the Oregon faithful. It's backup time in Cow-town.
Oregon State's starters stop Oregon's back-ups on 4th & long prompting the marching band to play the Gladiator theme. Just keep reaching for that rainbow, Beavers. Pay no attention to the fact that the Civil War is becoming a bigger blowout with every single year. On that same note, Oregon has a svelte 432 yards rushing right now. That has to be some sort of Civil War record.
Final Score: Oregon 48, OAC 24
The Beavers couldn't even give Oregon a game. This is the best Oregon State team since the 11-1 Fiesta Bowl squad in 2000. Hell, at least some of the past Oregon State teams looked like they were trying to play competently. Muffed punts, muffed kickoffs, horribly thrown interceptions, these are not the plays of a team trying to pull off one of the biggest upsets in its sad, sad history. Granted, this may Oregon's greatest team despite its loss to Stanford. This is Oregon's 60th win in the series.
This caps off a stellar 11-1 campaign from the Oregon Ducks. If a few things fall our way. By a few things, I mean a lot of things. But have faith, Florida State is holding onto a 7-point lead over the Gators entering the fourth quarter. Should that score hold, a USC over Notre Dame would likely put the Ducks into the national championship game with or without a Pac-12 Championship Game appearance. Here's your rooting list for the rest of today: Florida State, UCLA, and USC.
