CORVALLIS, Ore.—The 121st edition of the Civil War, Oregon and Oregon State’s rivalry game, comes this Saturday at Autzen Stadium.
For a 1-10 (and winless in Pac-12 play) Beavers team, the season hasn’t gone according to plan.
Yet an Oregon State win for a second year in a row over the Ducks would alleviate much of the pain.
That's the message being echoed from all members of the coaching staff—from Cory Hall at the top, to quality control coach and Medford-raised Mitch Singler.
"They know the feeling they had last year, all the success we had especially the last two games,” Singler said. “It's something they want to accomplish two years in a row."
This season will be Singler’s ninth year involved with the rivalry. Though he’s only beaten the Ducks once in his five years as a player and three as a coach, he looks back on each moment with fond memories.
"It's very special,” Singler said. “The game itself, it's fun to play in as a player, and then to coach in, it's electric. The atmosphere is crazy, it's loud. The fans are always cheering. It gives you chills."
