COLLEGE FOOTBALL RECORDS

Oregon-Oregon State
First game: 1894 
At stake: The Civil War 
When: late November 
Where: Autzen Stadium, Eugene or Parker Stadium, Corvallis

Misc.: 
The 1957 game was memorable for a couple of reasons, not the least 
of which was that Oregon lost the game, but still got to go to the Rose 
Bowl, because the Beavers had been there the previous year and the 
conference had a "no-repeat" rule at the time. Oregon State won, 10-7, 
when Nub Beamer recovered Oregon receiver Jim Shanley's fumble at the goal 
line, turning the Ducks away. Shanley crossed the plane of the goal line, 
a touchdown today, but lost possession before the play was over. Fumble.

In 1962, both teams were powerful, with Oregon State following Heisman 
Trophy winner Terry Baker to a 7-2 record and Oregon was led by Mel Renfro 
to a 6-2-1 mark. Bob Berry hit Renfro with a bomb for a touchdown that 
boosted Oregon to a 17-3 lead early, but Baker brought the Beavers back, 
earning a trip to the Liberty Bowl in the process.

In 1964, it was "winner goes to Pasadena, loser stays home," even though 
the teams didn't know it. Oregon State prevailed, 7-6, by blocking an 
extra point. USC and Oregon State tied for the conference title, but 
Oregon State received the invite to the Rose Bowl.

The series spent the better part of three decades as significant only 
within the state, as the programs struggled. It hit bedrock when the teams 
tied in 1983, 0-0, leaving the teams with a combined six wins for the 
season.
