The Civil War has supplied some magnificent memories and finishes, 1983 would not be one of them. Neither side lost, but it sure seems like the Ducks and Beavers both did in the "toilet bowl'.
The 1983 Civil War has the distinction of being the last scoreless tie in Division 1 football (prior to the advent of overtime in college.)
The game at a cold and soggy Autzen mercifully featured 11 total turnovers.
Oregon did get into the end zone twice, but both were called back on penalties.
It was the tenth and final scoreless tie in the series. The first since 1931.
The tie ended Oregon's eight game win streak in the series but they went on to win the next four.
