Oregon leads the series...
The Civil War is the seventh-most contested rivalry in the nation. It dates back to 1894. Oregon leads overall in the match-up 58-46-10 and has a three-game win streak.
Last season, Oregon won 37-20 in Corvallis led by LaMichael James’ 134 yards rushing and two touchdowns. The victory put Oregon in last year's BCS National Championship.
Cloudy. Highs in the low 50s and lows in the mid 40s.
Two UO faculty members will be honored during the game.
Biology Professor Eric Selker was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of the nation’s most prestigious honorary societies. Professor Selker studies the methylation of DNA, essential for growth and development and, when abnormal, associated with cancer and other diseases.
Assistant Professor Yvonne Braun, of the Department of International Studies and the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, received the University’s Ersted Award for Distinguished Teaching, established by the late Mr. A. J. Ersted and honoring faculty who "have taught comparatively short time periods and have demonstrated exceptional abilities to induce students to reason and not merely memorize."
