A look at some of the more memorable Civil War games

This probably won’t come as a surprise, but the Oregon Ducks will be wearing a sharp new uniform for Saturday’s Civil War game against Oregon State. The uniforms, called Oregon 33 — Oregon became the 33rd state in 1859 — feature a slick green camouflage and a new helmet design.

I solemnly swear I  shall refrain from commenting TOO often about how well these ^^^ dollars could be put to use for other social causes, this time (instead of self promotion in the guise of an Oregon  history lesson-that’s another post!) – but just in case you’re curious~
