On to second round voting:
(1) OSU wins Civil War: For the last nine years, the home team has won the Civil War. But not this season. With time expiring in regulation, the Ducks failed to ground the ball, forcing their kicking team onto the field with the clock approaching zero. The kicker was rushed, and the extra point fell short. In OT, an Alexis Serna 41-yard field goal sent the game into double OT. In that overtime, it was the infamous James Rodgers fly sweep that put the Beavers on top. Then, it was the Beaver defense shutting down Jonathan Stewart on fourth and one to seal the game.
(4) Oregon State wins the Emerald Bowl: San Francisco turned orange for a week, the Beavers won a bowl game, and it was lots of fun for everyone who went. What's there not to like? The game itself was a bit sloppy, but the Beavers prevailed over Maryland, a team we barely knew before the season started. The Beavers have now won four straight bowl games, five of the last six.
This should be a great matchup, but I have a feeling we're not going to see an upset this time around either.
