With a fifth straight win in the series -- their third straight in Corvallis -- the Oregon Ducks made it abundantly clear that they are clearly the best program in the state of Oregon and the Northwest. Saturday was the third time in five years that the Ducks have ripped a BCS bowl from the Beavers' grasp and now have a complete stranglehold on the series.

The Ducks have five straight wins against in-state rival Oregon State, nine consecutive against Washington and six straight against Washington State.

Oddly enough, the Ducks don't go head-to-head with Oregon State or Washington State very often for recruits.
