War for the Roses

Two of the top three scoring offenses in Pac-10 conference will face off this Thursday in what’s being labeled as “The War for the Roses.” #13 Oregon State (8-3) travels to Autzen Stadium boasting the conference’s best passer and second best rusher, while #7 Oregon (9-2) will showcase the league’s best ground game and most dangerous dual threat quarterback. Who has the edge?

Oregon has made four appearances in the Rose Bowl, most recently following the 1994 season. The Ducks would have played in the 2002 game but went to the Fiesta Bowl because of the Rose Bowl’s tie with the national championship game that season. Oregon State has not earned a trip to the New Year’s game in Pasadena since the 1964 season. The winner of this game will take on Big-10 Conference champion, Ohio State in the Rose Bowl on New Year's day.

Oregon Ducks or Oregon State Beavers?
