Corvallis Mayor Charlie Tomlinson and Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy have something besides pride riding on Thursday's football matchup between the Oregon State Beavers and University of Oregon Ducks.
Each mayor agreed to wear the winning team's colors at a respective city's upcoming City Council meeting.
A confident Tomlinson said he also requested to be served "roast duck a la orange" in Eugene following a Beavers win as well.
"We are both pleased our universities are playing for the roses and want to see good sportsmanship on and off the field," Tomlinson said. "I wish Coach Riley, his staff and the Oregon State University team a great Civil War game; our community is proud of your accomplishments."
