Civil War 2012: Oregon-Oregon State previews, TV schedule and odds

Steve Dykes

Oregon has to bounce back quickly from its heartbreaking loss to Stanford last weekend with rival Oregon State awaiting on Saturday.

The No. 5 Oregon Ducks hope to bounce back this week on the road against the No. 15 Oregon State Beavers on Saturday at Reser Stadium in Corvalis, Ore.

Oregon is coming off its first loss of the season, a soul-crushing defeat at the hands of the Stanford Cardinal last weekend that likely removed the Ducks from the national championship picture. Oregon had not scored less than 42 points in any game until putting up just 17 in the loss, so the offense will have to get back on track against an Oregon State team that ranks 21st in FBS in points per game allowed.

Oregon State is shooting for its first 10-win season since 2006. Although the 8-2 Beavers don't have to beat their rival to accomplish that, a win over the Ducks would give them a chance at 11 wins, something they have yet to achieve under current head coach Mike Riley.

Game time, TV channel: 3 p.m. ET, Pac-12 Network

Point spread: Oregon favored by 9 1/2.
