It’s an even series between the Buffs and Beavers, knotted at 5-5 all-time going back to their first meeting 1931. Colorado has won the past three games and none of the prior ten matchups were played in November. Coach Mike MacIntyre and the Buffs square off for the first time against former offense coordinator Brian Lindgren. He spent the past six years under MacIntyre at San Jose State and Colorado before taking over as Oregon State’s offensive coordinator before the start of the season.
Oregon State has lost 16 straight games vs. FBS opponents going back their last Civil War victory over Oregon, 34-24, on Nov. 26, 2016.
