Back in 2000, Oregon had a chance to clinch a Rose Bowl berth with a victory over Oregon State in the Civil War rivalry game. Instead, Joey Harrington threw five interceptions and the Ducks lost 23-13 in Corvallis.
There's been some debate among fans this week about which loss was harder, that game 12 years ago or Oregon's 17-14 overtime loss to Stanford last weekend. Only time will ultimately tell for the Ducks, but the stakes are high again for this year's Civil War on Saturday at Reser Stadium.
Fifth-ranked Oregon (10-1, 7-1) needs a win over the No. 16 Beavers (8-2, 6-2) for a shot at its fourth straight Pac-12 championship. The Ducks also need the No. 11 Cardinal (9-2, 7-1) to lose to southern division winner UCLA in Los Angeles on Saturday.
