For the 122nd time, the Oregon State Beavers take on the University of Oregon Ducks at the annual Civil War NCAA game on Friday, November 23, 2018. Just like always, we’ll be hosting a special viewing party for the game in our Event Center. Though the game will actually be played at OSU’s Reser Stadium, you can enjoy it in the warmth and comfort of Spirit Mountain Casino, out of the rain and close to the snacks. Speaking of…
Your $25 entry fee includes:
- Delicious “Tailgate” Buffet catered by our very own, award-winning Banquet staff.
- A huge 15’ X 20’ HD screen for your game-viewing pleasure.
- Additional drop-down screens located throughout the Event Center, so you can comfortably watch the game from wherever you’re sitting.
- A single raffle ticket entry for unique Ducks and Beavers merchandise.
The Beavers and Ducks have been playing a single Civil War game each year (with the exception of 1900, 1901, 1911, 1943, and 1944; two games were played in 1945) since 1892. Since both teams are from Oregon (they’re not even 50 miles from one another!), as well as members of the North Division of the Pac-12 Conference, the Civil War game is always a heated match for the winner’s trophy! If you’ve ever been to a live game, the energy is palpable.
Counter to that energy is the excitement our guests at Spirit Mountain Casino feel when we host our viewing party each year. Due to the nature of our sponsorship of each team, we won’t speak on which team is our favorite (we honestly can’t choose), but that doesn’t mean our guests can’t come to the party decked to the nines in their preferred school colors! In fact, we encourage it!
Over the record-breaking lifetime of the Civil War series, there have been a number of notable games and incidents, including:
- Of all the games played, there have only been 10 tie games, four of which were back-to-back (1913-1914 and 1920-1921).
- In 1987, the University of Oregon wallopped Oregon State with an impressive 44-0 game, sweeping that year.
- From 2008-2015, the University of Oregon won ALL of the Civil War games, until Oregon State finally squeaked out a win in 2016.
- In 1983, because the game was so waterlogged from a storm and both teams played horribly, fans dubbed the game the “Toilet Bowl.” The game ended with no points awarded.
There’s only one way to make sure you’re there for one of the biggest events of the year, and that’s by picking up a ticket to our Viewing Party and enjoying the game at Spirit Mountain Casino, surrounded by fellow College Football fans!
We’ll see you at kick-off!
