What: Civil War Party

When: Saturday, November 24th 2012

Where: Main Event Center at Spirit Mountain Casino

Tickets: $25 – includes tailgate food and one entry ticket to drawing.

This event is for adults 21 and over.

First played in 1894, this will be the 116th Civil War game between the Oregon Ducks and the Oregon State Beavers. It is the seventh-oldest college football rivalry game in the nation. Until 1929, the “Civil War” was called the “State Championship Game” or the “Oregon Classic.”

From 1996 through 2006, the home team won every game. The Oregon State Beavers broke the streak in 2007 when they beat the Oregon Ducks at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, winning 38-31 in double overtime. The Ducks returned the favor in 2008 by beating the Beavers 65-38 on their home turf at Reser Stadium, and the Ducks have won every game since then.

Can they do it again? The alumni association of the winning team takes home the Platypus Trophy, a tradition started in 1959, and picked up again in 2005 after the trophy was lost for 40 years.

Either way, there’s no better place to watch the game than right here with us at Spirit Mountain. Get your tickets before they sell out!
