2008 RETRO GAME 12: Oregon at Oregon State

IT WAS SIMPLE, really -- win and go to the Rose Bowl. But a heretofore stout Oregon State defense couldn't stop the Duck ground or passing game. Oregon took two interceptions back for points and eight plays from the line of scrimmage went for 35 yards or more. The win snapped both OSU's six game in-season streak plus the Beavs' two game Civil War winning streak.

Nov. 29 | No. 19 Oregon | L, 38-65

SHORT RECAP: It was simple -- win and go to the Rose Bowl. But the Oregon State defense couldn't stop the Duck ground or passing game as Oregon took two interceptions back for points with eight plays from the line of scrimmage that went for 35 yards or more in scoring a Civil War record 65 points. The win snapped both OSU's six game in-season streak plus the Beavs' two game Civil War winning streak.

KEY STAT: 694 - The number of yards the Oregon offense had.

KEY QUOTE: “It definitely hurts coming this whole way during the season, playing through the games we had to play through and then not being able to top it off.” QB Lyle Moevao
