November 24, 2023

The 2023 “Civil War” will take place on Friday night and will feature two of the best teams in the Pac-12 Conference when the Oregon State Beavers travel to Eugene, Oregon to face the 6th-ranked Oregon Ducks at Autzen Stadium with the game scheduled to start at 8:30 PM ET and will air on Fox.

The Oregon State Beavers almost defeated the Washington Huskies on Saturday, however, they lost the game by a score of 20-22 at home which also ended their two-game winning streak. Oregon State enters this game with a record of 8-3 including a record of 5-3 in the Pac-12 which puts them in 4th place in the conference. The defense for the Oregon State Beavers has played a pivotal role in the success they have had this season as they are allowing an average of 20.64 points per game while also having one of the best scoring offenses in college football as they enter this game ranked 18th in points per game with an average of 36.27 points per game and DJ Uiagaleli has had a resurgence this season after transferring from Clemson as he has completed 161 of 280 attempts for 2,418 passing yards with 20 touchdown and six interceptions and if the Beavers are going to beat the Ducks he will have to have an above-average performance on the road on Friday night.

With a win in this game, the Oregon Ducks will face the Washington Huskies in the Pac-12 Championship game in what could determine one of the playoff spots in the 2023 College Football Playoffs. The Ducks enter this game with a record of 10-1 and are on a five-game winning streak since the loss against the Washington Huskies earlier this season which includes a 49-13 win on the road against the Arizona State Sun Devils with Bo Nix playing a pivotal role in the win as he completed 24 of 29 attempts for 404 yards and six touchdowns and has been a major catalyst in the 2nd best scoring offense in college football this season and is one of the favorites to win the 2023 Heisman Trophy as he has completed 282 of 361 attempts for 3,539 yards for 35 touchdowns and two interceptions while rushing for 128 yards and five touchdowns. The defense has been equally as impressive as they are allowing the 11th fewest points per game with an average of 16.73 points per game. 

BookMaker has the Oregon Ducks listed as 13-point favorites at home against the Oregon State Beavers on Friday night in week 13 of the college football season. Oregon has won seven of the last ten while Oregon State has won two of the last three meetings. The Beavers are 6-4 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series.

Oregon is one of the best teams in the Pac-12 and has a chance to make the college football playoffs this season, however, they will need to win this game as with a loss they would be out of the playoff picture and if they lose and Arizona wins then they don’t play for the Pac-12 Championship. However, the Ducks have won seven of the last ten against the Beavers and have been one of the best teams at covering the spread in the Pac-12 this season as they are 8-2-1 ATS overall and 5-2-1 in conference games while the Beavers are 6-5 ATS overall and 4-4 ATS in conference games. Lay the points with the Ducks in the Civil War against the Beavers on Friday night.
