Hopes for the Rose Bowl were diminished today for Oregon State.

(CORVALLIS, Ore.) - It was a quack attack. The OSU Beavers were pounded by the Oregon Ducks during the Civil War game today, with a final score of 65-38. The game now represents the most points scored on the Beavers in their history.

This doesn't fit with the Beavers hopes of earning a win that would have advanced them to the Rose Bowl.

Oregon State's defense just couldn't find the right moves to counter the attack from the Ducks, and it meant Oregon State would not see their third consecutive Civil War win.

Little hope was left at the end of the second half; when the Ducks scored 14 points in a short window of time, and suddenly shot up 27 points.

Oregon State's offense experienced problems managing the red zone early and simply did not cash in enough on scoring opportunities when they had them.

The Beavers were trailing by 14 points as they entered the fourth quarter, then they suffered another setback and suddenly they were looking at an unlikely 21-point comeback. It didn't happen.

Oregon remained strong and scored a few more first downs, then came another long touchdown pass and run, followed by an interception return to close out the game.
