Civil War History

Civil War - 1912


1912: UO 3, OSU 0. A fragile truce is made and a compromise is struck to hold the game on a neutral field in Albany. An army of carpenters build a temporary 10,000-seat grandstand in the week before the game and 20 Albany police officers usher students in from opposite sides of the field. Students from both schools are prohibited from walking into downtown Albany before or after the game. Oregon wins on a lone field goal and wins for the ninth time in 12 meetings.
