Tuesday, October 22, 2013 – Allen West: Out of the Foxhole by Allen B. West for The Washington Times

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida, October 21, 2013 – The stench and abysmal theater emanating from Washington D.C. reminds me of the infamous “Toilet Bowl” college football game between Oregon and Oregon State in 1983.

As I’m a born, raised and schooled Southerner, Fall means one simple thing: Southeastern Conference (SEC) Football. (I’m explaining the acronym on behalf of those Northerners who may have thought I was referring to the Securities and Exchange Commission).

Back in 1983, these two very horrible football teams met in one of football’s storied rivalries, the “Civil War” between the Oregon Ducks and the Oregon State Beavers. The game ended in a scoreless tie, and in fact was the last Division I football game to end in such a way. There were eleven fumbles, five interceptions, and four missed field goals. It was such a miserable outcome, college football changed its rules to allow for overtime.

  1. Nebraska and Colorado played to a 19-19 tie in 1991 in a Division I contest. So the 1983 “Toilet Bowl” could not have been the last college football game that ended in a tie.

    Love your posts but this one is wrong on that point.

      There were eleven fumbles, five interceptions, and four missed field goals. It was such a miserable outcome, college football changed its rules to allow for overtime.

      Not that it was the last “one” ever to end in a tie.
