Oregon-Oregon State will no longer be a conference game beginning with the 2024 season with Oregon headed to the B1G. However, school officials are reportedly looking to ensure that the long-running rivalry, which will be staged for the 127th time on Friday, remains on the schedule.

According to Pac-12 insider John Canzano and The Oregonian beat writer James Crepea, both programs are working to keep the series going. Per Canzano, the proposed date is Sept. 14.

That said, while that is an open date for the Beavers, the Ducks currently have a game scheduled against Boise State for that day, part of a 3-game series that sees the Broncos come to Eugene in 2024 and 2026 and the Ducks travel to Albertsons Field in 2025. Per Crepea, the proposal is to push the 2024 and 2025 games “back to [the] 2030s” to continue the Oregon-Oregon State series at least for the next 2 years.

Regarding buying out the series, Canzano stated that it would make sense for the Broncos to cancel outright given that they recently fired head coach Andy Avalos and still owe him $2.85 million.

“Canceling the series with the Ducks and collecting a six-figure check would help with cash flow,” he noted.
