Oregon is a 13-point favorite over Oregon State this week.
The Ducks host the Beavs on Friday in an annual rivalry clash that will carry massive implications. If Oregon wins, it’ll play for the Pac-12 Championship and potentially a spot in the College Football Playoff. If Oregon State wins, Arizona could be sent to the title game.
Last year’s matchup was thrilling. And Oregon State just played Washington tight on Saturday. Still, Vegas has the Ducks as a two-score early favorite.
The over/under from Circa Sports was set at 58.5.

Oregon hasn’t lost consecutive games to Oregon State since 2006-07. The Beavs won in Corvallis last season 38-34 after trailing by as many as 21 points in the third quarter.
Through a litany of self-inflicted errors, the Ducks gave their rivals a short field on three consecutive possessions. Oregon State converted all three drives into touchdowns without attempting a single pass.
The Beavers won with just 13 pass attempts and 60 passing yards, knocking Oregon out of the Pac-12 title game.
They’ll have the chance to do the exact same thing on Friday. Should Oregon lose, Arizona would be a Territorial Cup victory away from meeting Washington for the Pac-12 title.
Oregon coach Dan Lanning said on Saturday this game is the Ducks’ Super Bowl. Quarterback Bo Nix said Oregon has to close things out and make amends for last season. Kickoff is set for 5:30 p.m. PT on FOX.
In 1st start, Oregon native Shelstad hits winning 3 in OT for Ducks in 86-83 win over Michigan
EUGENE, Ore. – Freshman Jackson Shelstad, an Oregon high school product making his first start and home-court debut, hit a deep 3-pointer with 1.4 seconds remaining in overtime to give the Ducks an 86-83 win over Michigan on Saturday.
Shelstad was mobbed by teammates after his bucket blunted a career-best 33 points by Wolverines sophomore Dug McDaniel, whose half-court heave hit the back of the rim at the buzzer.
Shelstad, a two-time Oregon Gatorade Player of the Year in high school at West Linn, was starting in place of injured Jesse Zarzuela. He finished with 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting. Brennan Rigsby led the Ducks with 19 points and Jermaine Couisnard and Kario Oquendo had 13 each. The Ducks (5-2) shot 51%, made 10 of 16 3-point attempts and scored 18 points off 16 Michigan turnovers.
McDaniel shot 12 of 21, making a career-high seven 3-pointers on 12 attempts for Michigan (4-4). Nimari Burnett added 13 points and Olivier Nkamhoua 12. Michigan shot 48% and hit 13 of 31 from the arc.
McDaniel made 6 of 7 3-point attempts and scored 24 points in the second half. But after Oquendo made two free throws to tie the game with 15.1 seconds left in regulation, Jadrian Tracey poked the ball off McDaniel out of bounds, giving Oregon a chance at winning in regulation. The Ducks, though, missed a pair of jumpers.
Shelstad led the Ducks with five overtime points. McDaniel missed his three shots, including the final heave.
Oquendo scored the Ducks’ final six points of the first half for a 38-35 lead.
Head coach Juwan Howard, continuing to rest and rehab from Sept. 15 heart surgery, transitioned back to an assistant coach for this game while Phil Martelli continued to serve as interim head coach. Howard returned to the bench as an observer for the Wolverines’ previous three games. His designation as an assistant coach results in an on-court assistant returning to off-court duties.
Michigan opens its Big Ten season at home on Tuesday against Indiana. Oregon is home against UTEP next Saturday.

Razor clam harvesting now open on Oregon’s central coast
Oregon’s central coast is now open to harvesting of razor clams, the Oregon Department of Agriculture announced Friday.
Razor clam harvesting is now allowed between Seaside and Waldport. Officials say levels of the biotoxin domoic acid have fallen below closure levels. Domoic acid is not dangerous to the clams, but can make humans ill if ingested and can even lead to short-term memory loss.
Symptoms of amnesic shellfish poisoning, which is caused by domoic acid, include vomiting, nausea, diarrhea and confusion.
An area must have two consecutive tests below closure level before the state will open it to harvesting.
The total area for razor clams now stretches from the Washington border to Cape Blanco.
Harvesting of bay clams, crabs and mussels remains open across the entire Oregon Coast.
Harvesters are encouraged to contact the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for license requirements, permits and limits on catches.
Oregon school report card shows gains, declines and dramatic, continuing enrollment drop
The Oregon Department of Education recently released its annual statewide report card, providing a glimpse into the state’s public school system for the 2022-23 school year.
Officials reported a decline in enrollment and regular attendance, a decline in teacher experience and a higher number of students experiencing homelessness.
The percentage of students of color still is dramatically higher than that of teachers of color, with both increasing last year.
And, after adjusting for inflation, average teacher salaries have fallen over the past decade.
“Clearly the results show we have more work to do to set Oregon’s students up for success,” ODE Director Dr. Charlene Williams said in a news release.
The annual snapshot released Thursday includes hundreds of data points — everything from student demographics to education funding information — much of which also is released throughout the year in individual reports.
Among the findings in the 85-page report:
- There has been a dramatic and continuing decline in enrollment since the COVID-19 pandemic. There were 552,380 students enrolled in the state’s public schools on Oct. 2, 2022. That’s 29,350, or 5.1%, fewer students than in 2018-19, before the pandemic. Education officials attributed the decline to the impacts of the pandemic and distance learning.
- There were 21,478 students experiencing housing insecurity in 2022-23, a 15% increase from the prior year.
- There are 333 unique languages spoken by Oregon students.
- The number of women serving as principals increased by 3 percentage points to 58% in 2022-23, compared to 55% in 2021-22.
- For the fourth year in a row, there has been an increase in the number of non-binary students reported in fall enrollment.
- The percentage of ninth graders on track to graduate increased again in 2022-23, compared to 2021-22. The total statewide rate increased by 0.8 percentage points to 83.6% and is approaching pre-pandemic levels.
- Graduation rates increased for all student groups, with the largest increase in student groups whose needs have historically not been met by Oregon’s education system. The graduation rate for students experiencing houselessness increased by 3.2 percentage points, and for migrant students by 3.1 percentage points.
