Despite Bynum’s catch, OSU and U of O played to a 0-0 tie in what some dubbed the “Toilet Bowl.” The game included eleven turnovers – five by the Beavers and six by the Ducks. The game was the first 0-0 tie between the teams since 1931, and the sixth in the history of the series. Despite OSU’s lack of gridiron success as a team, Bynum led the nation in receiving yards per reception in 1983 at 24.2 yards. He was a ninth-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in the 1986 NFL draft.

The Beavers won this game, which was played in Eugene, by a score of 10-7. The 1969 season also marked the one-hundredth anniversary of college football, and many teams across the country marked the occasion by wearing helmets with a special decal - the numeral "100" inside a football-shaped outline.
