List of Oregon State Beavers bowl games
The Oregon State Beavers college football team competes as part of the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), representing Oregon State University in the North Division of the Pac-12 Conference (Pac-12). Since the establishment of the team in 1893, Oregon State has appeared in 17 bowl games.[a] Included in these games are three appearances in the Rose Bowl Game and one Bowl Championship Series (BCS) game appearances, in the 2001 Fiesta Bowl. This does not include the 1960 Gotham Bowl, that was canceled after bowl organizers could not find an opponent to compete against Oregon State who had already accepted the bid.
- The Pineapple Bowl was unsanctioned by the NCAA. As such, the two appearances in the game in 1940 and 1949 are not included in the NCAA bowl listing for Oregon State. Additionally, this record excludes the Mirage Bowl, a regular season game played in 1980.
- Due to concerns following the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, the January 1, 1942, Rose Bowl was moved to Duke University's Duke Stadium in Durham, North Carolina, as officials were wary of allowing such a large crowd to congregate anywhere on the West Coast due to World War II security threats. This remains the only Rose Bowl Game played outside of its home in Pasadena, California.
- The Las Vegas Bowl has been known as the: Las Vegas Bowl (1992–1998, 2000, 2003); EA Sports Las Vegas Bowl (1999); Sega Sports Las Vegas Bowl (2001–2002), Pioneer PureVision Las Vegas Bowl (2004–2006); Pioneer Las Vegas Bowl (2007–2008); MAACO Bowl Las Vegas (2009–2012); Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl (since 2013).
