This year, the annual Civil War matchup between Oregon and Oregon State will hold added importance as the Ducks plan to host 4-star cornerback prospect, Dior Mathis, that weekend.
Mathis' father confirmed for eDuck this afternoon that the family plans to visit Eugene from Thursday to Saturday the week of the Civil War game. The Mathis family watched the Oregon-USC game with great interest this past Saturday and came away very impressed with the Ducks' effort against a top five team. "We would have liked to have been there," said Mathis' father, "it looked like quite the game...those fans are crazy!"
Originally, the Mathis family had planned on visiting the Oregon campus this past Saturday, though with Cass Tech reaching the Michigan state playoffs, it wasn't possible. Cass Tech was victorious in their playoff victory over Dearborn Fortson, as they rallied from a 23-2 deficit to win 24-23, with Mathis capping the Technicians' comeback bid with an 80-yard interception return for a touchdown with four minutes left to play.
