Civil War Dropped From Rivalry Game

(Corvallis, OR) -- Civil War will no longer be used in the title of the rivalry football game between Oregon State University and the University of Oregon. OSU President Ed Ray says while it didn't reference the actual Civil War, it could have been misconstrued to represent the divisive episode in American history. He says it was a mistake to not act sooner to change the name. The football series between Oregon State and Oregon is the fifth-most contested rivalry in the country in the Football Bowl Subdivision with the 124th edition this November at Reser Stadium in Corvallis.
