Rivalries between neighboring colleges can bring out the best in sports in competition, but also the worst in the sports fan. Taunting, fighting, and general mayhem accompanies the annual match-up between the University of Oregon and Oregon State University known as the ‘Civil War’, but it never ceases to entertain; in 2010, both teams were in desperate need for a win – Oregon to gain a trip to the National Championship game and State for Bowl eligibility – and in 2009, both teams were fighting for a spot in the Rose Bowl. Another rivalry between the two schools popped up in 2011 – the Air Jordan Retro PE showdown; the University of Oregon flaunted the Air Jordan III in a ‘Home’ and ‘Away’ colorway, while Oregon State spiced things up with this White/Orange/Black Air Jordan IX PE. This battle, however, can be determined by the sneakerhead public, so which Oregon college had the better Air Jordan Retro PE? We’ve got a detailed look at the Air Jordan IX ‘Oregon State’ below so take a look and check out the asking price for this listing from depeche23mode on eBay.
