The Oregon State Beavers football team represents Oregon State University in NCAA Division I-A college football. The team first fielded an organized football team in 1893[1] and is currently a member of the Pacific-12 Conference. The head coach is Mike Riley, with Danny Langsdorf as the offensive coordinator and Mark Banker as the defensive coordinator. Their home games are played at Reser Stadium in Corvallis, Oregon.

RivalriesEdit

University of OregonEdit

Oregon State's primary rival is the University of Oregon. The two schools enjoy a fierce and long-standing rivalry due to the proximity of the two campuses. The University of Oregon is located in Eugene, Oregon, about 40 miles south of Corvallis. The teams first matched up on the gridiron in 1894 and have been playing each other almost every year since. The rivalry game between the two schools is called the "Civil War" and is typically played the last game of each season. They have played each other 114 times which makes it the seventh-oldest college football rivalry game.

Washington and Washington StateEdit

The two other Pacific Northwest Pac-12 schools are also rivals. The Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars are within driving distance of Corvallis, so a large number of the road team's fans typically travel to each game. The Beavers have been playing the Huskies since 1897 and the Cougars since 1903. It is notable that the Oregon State-Washington rivalry predates the first Apple Cup and Oregon-Washington games, which were initiated in 1900.

The rivalry between the four Pacific Northwest Pac-12 schools is occasionally called the "Northwest Championship". Former Washington Huskies coach Rick Neuheisel coined the phrase to describe the four-team competition during the 2002 season. Since 2002, Oregon State has won the "Northwest Championship" two times (2004, 2007) by beating all three of its rivals in the same season. The Beavers have struggled to challenge rival Oregon's dominance for the past half-decade, resulting in a potential termination to head coach Mike Riley.[citation needed] Riley receives an annual salary of $1,600,000 per season.[citation needed]

Conference historyEdit

Oregon State has been in several athletic conferences. These include the Northwest Intercollegiate Association (1902-1914),[2] the Pacific Coast Conference (1915-1959),[3] and the Pacific-12 Conference (1964-present). Prior to 1902, and in-between the Pacific Coast and Pacific-12 conferences, Oregon State played as an independent school.

Bowl historyEdit

Oregon State has played in 15 postseason bowl games.[6] The Beavers have also played in the Mirage Bowl, but this was a regular season game and a "bowl" in name only, not a post-season invitational bowl game.[7] The 15 bowl game total does not include an invitation to play in the Gotham Bowl in 1960, when no opponent could be found for Oregon State.[8] The Beavers are 10-5 in bowl game appearances.
