For the first time in a long time, there's nothing big on the line in the Civil War. No national championship. No Rose Bowl berth. No Pac-12 title.

When Oregon and Oregon State meet in their annual rivalry game on Friday, it will be about salvaging the season after demoralizing losses this past weekend.

Oregon (9-2, 6-2) got stunned by Arizona, losing 42-16 in Tucson, and subsequently dropped from No. 5 to No. 12 in the rankings and out of the Pac-12 championship game. Stanford, with a 63-13 victory over Cal in the Big Game on Saturday, clinched the Pac-12 North and will play Arizona State for the league title and a trip to Pasadena on New Year's Day.

Oregon State (6-5, 4-4) was routed 69-27 at home by Washington.
